Drunk Spunk

, , , , , | Learning | April 12, 2019

(In forensic science, we’re doing our toxicology unit. The last couple of days have been specifically about alcohol. Alcohol will go anywhere in your body that you have liquid, even crossing the blood-brain barrier. When I tell classes that, inevitably, some boy raises his hand.)

Student: “Does it get in your… y’know… your semen?”

Me: “Yes. Semen has liquid, so alcohol can get in there.”

Student: “So, is it possible for your sperm cells to get drunk and get lost and not be able to find where they’re going? Oh, is that why some babies are born messed up from alcohol?”
