Salacious Scenes Sing Along: Sperm Test
I have a jolly time planned for us today, my darlings. We are going to enjoy a few PG-13 clips together! These all feature my second husband, the lovely and talented Mr. Hugh Laurie.
I'll bet you're wracking your brain, wondering what Hugh has to do with sperm-related songs. After all, the most famous song, Every Sperm is Sacred in Monty Python's Meaning of Life, didn't involve Hugh. You probably haven't seen a little film that came out in 2000, Maybe Baby, with lucky Joely Richardson. Hugh stars as her husband in the comedy. They're a couple who have various misadventures trying to conceive.
He and writer Ben Elton collaborated to write this piece, Sperm Test. It reminds me of his wonderful compositions from A Bit of Fry and Laurie.
Even if you are shy about singing the words, surely you can join him and his dog in howling at the end. Wasn't that good fun? And good God, doesn't he look young?
It would be the height of cruelty for me to leave you wondering how his character's little swimmers perform. So without further ado, The Test Results:
Finally, because you can NEVER have enough HL, here is a thematically consistent clip of him in A Bit of Fry and Laurie. I love this sketch because it features his real-life infant son, Charlie. As a special bonus, it is subtitled in Chinese.
My Amazing Children never fail to giggle when we watch this bit. They love to shout "scumbag" and watch the little baby's lower lip tremble. They are bad children.
Clearly, since he's able to produce such a cute baby, Hugh Laurie the real man has sperm that are just fine.
Not that I have any personal experience with that.
