Hey, who wants to get a job in South Korea? Apparently, the birth rates are so low there that the government is giving people time off to do the nasty. The horizontal mambo. . . .
South Korea’s health ministry, which is charged with boosting the nation’s low birthrate, is turning off the lights in its offices once a month to encourage staff to go home early and make more babies.
The ministry said in a statement Wednesday the switches will be flicked at 7.30 pm every third Wednesday in the month to “help staff get dedicated to childbirth and upbringing”.
Those with urgent duties will be exempt from the switch-off.
Strangely enough, those with inflatable girlfriends and the hideously ugly (like myself) will also be exempt. You know, this wouldn’t be a problem if more South Korean women looked like Lee Hyori (above). I’m just sayin’.
