A WOMAN using a sperm bank to conceive wants potential donors to provide a grammar sample.
Donna Sheridan has asked each potential match to submit a 500-word essay, demonstrating the use of ‘less’ and ‘fewer’ and ‘who’ and ‘whom’, as well as at least 10 apostrophes.
She said: “The donor profiles tell you about the man’s height and hair colour, but they overlook their use of ‘there, their and they’re’.
“I’m determined to give my child the best start in life. I won’t risk them being susceptible to the misuse of an Oxford comma.”
Sheridan began the search for a sperm donor after her last relationship ended with a text saying, ‘its over’.
She added: “I replied saying, ‘No, it’s over’. He also described himself as ‘very unique’.”
