One lactating lady sprayed police officers with her breast milk after they confronted her regarding a domestic violence charge. The woman, who was allegedly drunk, had locked herself in a car and refused to cooperate with officers. When they tried to pull her from the car, she is said to have informed the officers that she was a breastfeeding mom, then whipped out a breast and sprayed the officers with her mother's milk. Well, that's one way to pump and dump.
It's alright. That's okay. You're going to work for us one day. So goes the chant sung by nerds at many a sporting event.

Guys, if you want to be a dad, take that cell phone out of your front pocket and take the laptop off of your lap. Also, if you need to get an X-ray, be sure to request a shield for your testicles. You should also avoid hot tubs and tight pants that can overheat the little swimmers. Spandex in particular should be avoided.

Speaking of points, try to avoid having anything sharp and pointy stab you down there as even childhood injuries to the testes are proving to affect male fertility later in life. Now go forth and procreate.
