India Offering Cars, Cash For Male Sterility
Inb4 cash for gonads.
India, in an attempt to halt the country's exploding population, is offering cars, motorcycles, cash, televisions and blenders to men willing to have vasectomies. No word if the men receiving blenders will have to perform the operation themselves.
The chief medical office of Rajasthan's Jhunjunu Sitaram Sharma hopes that about 30,000 individuals will volunteer...
This follows on the heels of a similar program wherein approximately 150 men received vasectomies in exchange for gun licenses in a region that has been described as "bandit-invested." That'll end well.
India's population has been growing out of control, and is currently on track to surpass China's population within the next 20 years. Currently, India's population is at around 1.21 billion.
Not gonna lie, I'd get my nuts cut for a whole lot less. I'm talking like the promise of an Applebee's gift card. Not even the actual gift card, just the promise of one. And I'm not just saying that because I don't want any more kids, but because I really love Applebees. One appetizer and two entrees for $20 -- how're they even turning a profit?!
Thanks to Melissa, who isn't convinced sterilizing 30,000 guys is gonna make much of a dent in a 1.21-billion person population. No? Maybe they're the ones getting all the ladies pregnant!
