So I'm watching Coronation Street this morning (I admit . . . I'm a Cory) and one of the characters is pregnant and she's sitting around talking about baby names. Somebody chimes in with "why don't you name it Moon Unit as an homage to Frank Zappa" or as the Brits say Zapper. Just about choked on my tea and crumpet. This probably aired in the UK months ago as the episodes we get here in Canada are months behind.

We've got a soap here called Passions. In one story, a man had a sex change operation and got impregnated by his father. So basically the father was the father AND grandfather of the baby.

Here's a clip:

But, dey's woikin' on it...

"The research, led by Richard Smith, a London gynaecological surgeon, could allow women (potentially including transsexuals) to receive a donor uterus and keep it while they bear children - delivered by Caesarean section. They could use eggs from a donor fertilised by their partner and placed in the implanted uterus..."

Not an unheard of phenomenon, even without the science fiction.

Was Passions intended to be a comedy?
