place bets on whose spermatozoid wins the fight (for texas millionaires)

The following facts are not widely known but they are true and form the basis for my crackpot idea that nobody will take seriously. 1. spermatozoids come in two varieties, those that can fertalize the egg and those that can also fight spermatozoids from other men. They look like little pacmen with a tail. I know it sounds weird but still, it is really so. Trust me on this. 2. The egg is not fertalized by the spermatozoid who "wins the race" as it were, but rather it extends a cord or line to one of the spermatozoids swimming around it. Thus the egg chooses her mate.

What I propose is this: a large casino in Las Vegas. Men with big hats, bigger ego's and fat wallets have their sperm extracted by helpfull ladies (men with big hats like the idea allready). Sperm from various participants is put together in a petrie dish and gamblers can watch what happens on a big screen. The last surviving spermatozoid is the winner. The spermatozoids can have different colours and dna tests will ensure the outcome is checked.

To make things more interesting an egg may be added... Who will it choose?

I think perhaps politicians might like to play on national television, after all we want to elect the biggest ego, don't we?

Granted, the people who want to play are of low moral standards and so am I for coming up with this idea. But hey, I'm only human and I don't even wear a hat.

       Not to be confused with [spermware], which is either embedded code in a circuit board, or small tupperware for lab samples.

       ok. It was just my first contribution, sorry.

       You have to admit that it's pretty yucky. No insult intended. Welcome to the Halfbakery :-)

       This brings a whole new meaning to 'cockfighting.'

       I admit contracts, and thanks.

       Thanks, Zeno, it's of no interest to me except to mirror to a society that their generation has been chosen in time to deal with such moral questions that will affect the future for at least the next thousand years; so maybe it should be of interest to me.

       Supreme trivialization of life. A sure sign the end of times is near-

       Bone! Just because I wear a big hat doesn't mean I want to sperminate a big ego child with an oprah-clinton hybrid eggo or anything! Frankly, I'm sick of the stereotype against big hat wearing people!

       //The following facts are not widely known// This is because the following facts are, in fact, bollocks.

       [Zeno], i didn't like your Paris Hilton idea, but this one's good. Maybe the takings from bets could help fund the child's upbringing. However, i doubt it's actually based on sound biological principles. I know sperm can be competitive, but i think they can compete within the same ejaculate, so it wouldn't be competition between separate men.

       Big condom - No sperm is sorta like Big hat - No cattle
