From the bestselling IVF cookbook: an egg recipe

Prep Time: between 1-10 years.
Cost: $10,000. Materials not included.

INGREDIENTS
•8-12 ripe follicles
•8-12 hard boiled eggs

•50 million sperms (washed)

•5-10 fertility drugs and vitamins

•2 nurses

•one tiny test tube (sterilized)

DIRECTIONS
1.Crack open your legs and enjoy an internal massage on several occasions.
2.Combine fertility medications until properly digested.

3.Draw blood at the clinic, daily.

4.Spread legs, finely.

5.Remove eggs. Do not chop.

6.Rub male parts until explosive results. Freeze contents for at least 5 hours.

7.Mix eggs with white content in a tray. Keep warm.

8.Drizzle filling into small hairy opening.

9.When ready to serve, insert, then let cool for 30 minutes. Insert panty liner.

10.Garnish as necessary. Serve fresh or frozen. Repeat the follow month and the month after that.

Makes 1-8 servings.
