Another passing thought I had today when ol' Octomom Nadya Suleman crossed my mind momentarily.
Now that Nadya's tape of her giving birth to her octuplets will be sold to any takers offering a seven figure sum, we'll soon officially know what it's like to witness what it must be like to see a cantaloupe being tossed out of the Grand Canyon...once it's posted on the internet that is.
In order to reduce the amount of obscene pregnancies, reproductive politics need a bit of adjustment. I propose issuing a Baby Permit to any couples wishing to have children...The more children you have, the more permits you are required to purchase and renew every year of their lives until they give birth to their own offspring.
Creating a new law that requires people wishing to have a baby to apply for a permit prior to conception might ensure the limitation of consequences of frozen embryo harvesting and implantation, but could also deter free-range philandering, and subsequent poorly thought out trysts.
For one thing, the idea of being licensed or issued a permit to procreate sounds kind of cool. Doesn't it?

- Flickering candlelight (check)
- Soft music (check)
- Satin sheets (check)
- Scented massage oil (check)
- IQ above 70 (check)
- Baby permit (check)
OK, I'm ready!
Why this might even eliminate our economic problems in and of itself! BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!
I'm heading to Washington to get this bill signed today.
Hmm, after careful consideration - I just thought there could be dozens of people selling their baby permits on eBay.
Counterfeiting rings would spring up, and unscrupulous government officials and Wall Street workers would deal in baby permits under the table. Oh, the humanity!
Okay, so the idea was followed up poorly. If we take another look at it, maybe we can salvage this one?
