Adolf Hitler Alive And Well At The Beautiful Babies Sperm-And-Egg Bank

A new twist on Improving The Species.  Instead of ovens, limit the germ cells to the select few.

I'm not kidding.  These morons are actually pursuing eugenics, 1930's style, using modern genetic knowledge, to produce beautiful babies.  See BeautifulPeople.comCBS News reports on the site's initiative to allow the beautiful people to search for genetic material from beautiful people.  According to Managing Director Greg Hodge,
"There are no financial benefits for us in doing so — we are simply responding to a demand for attractive donors. Every parent would like their child to be blessed with many fine attributes, attractiveness being one of the most sought after. For a site with members who resemble Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Angelina Jolie you can imagine the demand."
It's the "place to be" for folks who want that beautiful baby, where members rate applicants on their attractiveness, and you have to be voted into membership.  AND, where you can be expelled if you don't "keep up appearances." (“Letting fatties roam the site is a direct threat to our business model and the very concept for which was founded.” said founder Robert Hintze.)

With a beneficence bordering on the extra-planetary, the founder described their generous decision to open the doors to ugly people.
“Initially, we hesitated to widen the offering to non-beautiful people,” site founder Robert Hintze told the Vancouver Sun. “But everyone – including ugly people – would like to bring good-looking children into the world, and we can’t be selfish with our attractive gene pool.”
Such magnanimity is beyond my power to express.

May they all shrivel up and blow away, along with all the ash from the Nazi ovens.

 [PS:  The idea doesn't work.  The gene pool is too complex, and, combined with the random recombination, you can't predict the result.  Another anti-scientific fad.]
