I’ve been reading a thread about how red-heads will be extinct in a hundred years.

There was some to-ing and fro-ing … argument and counter-argument …. but the most interesting thing to arise out of it all was the idea that a breeding programme should be implemented to preserve them, because “hot redheads are just too important to society to leave these things to chance.”

My maternal grandmother and paternal grandfather were, appropriately enough, red-heads.

Even though I’m not, there have, over the years, been (far too) many people who have accused me of having a red tinge to my hair.

So, I think I should be considered for the breeding programme ¹.

¹ I think I could do a good job of impregnating lots of hot, red-headed women, given enough time … and hot, red-headed women ².

² Actually, I don’t really care what colour their hair is, so long as they’re hot.

There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live and too rare to die.
