Trent Arsenault has fathered 14 children as a sperm donor since 2004 and the Food and Drug Administration has a problem with that. The agency says because the Fremont, Calif. man "recovers and distributes semen and therefore is a manufacturer of human cells," he's in violation of the law and has since ordered he stop donating sperm. We don't quite understand the background story or what's going on here, but Trent says he's merely “helping people in need. I don’t make any money, I don’t charge people anything. And it is just helping childless couples have children.” And therefore, despite threats from the FDA, he continues to donate sperm to those families who've asked him to be their baby daddy.

While the details of this fight aren't as dramatic as what happened at a church in Alabama last summer, it's all very sad.

Someone needs to give Ashley Robinson a clue. Her baby daddy, 28-year-old Christopher Murray, admitted to police to breaking both of her 18-month-old nephew's legs because he was frustrated over being tired and out of cigarettes. However, Ashley (bless her heart) insists Christopher is innocent and isn't capable of committing such a crime -- because he's never done such a thing before. What a donkey!
