A Question of Trental

I've been asked to explain the Trental/Sperm thing....so here goes....

I, Steve, take Trental as a blood thinning drug to assist a blood disorder I have, diagnosed as Livedo Vasculitis....but thats not the reason for the Title...

But, Trental can also be used to treat men with low sperm counts...I have no idea how a drug that thins the blood thickens the sperm count, but apparently it does...one of the wonders of modern medicine no doubt......how do these things get discovered....

But, it left me and my friend L pondering...if Trental assists men with low sperm counts, what does it do to men with normal sperm counts.....

Does it add extra sperm where before there were plenty??? Making the individual appaently as fertile as...well..... something incredibly fertile?????

Does it make the already plentiful sperm superspermal (the sperm equivalent of super human)??? Can they run/swim through contraceptive barriers as if they weren't there, or perhaps swim faster than a speeding bullet????

We had no ideas, but the nickname "Trentalman" came about.....Trentalman is now a bona fide Superhero, much like Mr Incredible and Elastigirl....but because he is gentleman superhero, he is

MR TRENTAL, MAN OF SPERM......aka Trentalman......

Which then bodes the questions.....aside from superspermal sperm, does Trentalman have any other super powers????? What is his uniform????? What is his alterego????? Who is his arch enemy???? What is Trentalman's purpose?????

Ummmmmm.....food for thought.......send some suggestions if you want.......

Well...his alterego is the mild-mannered public servant... his arch enemy is MR CSA (for those not 'in the know' that's the Australian Child Support Agency)... as for his purpose...hmmm not sure...that is apart from producing the absolutely delicious Ms Charlotte

And as for uniform...who knows...but I bet it is made of Latex...and unlike other superheroes...Trentalman's uniform isn't to protect him from the outside world...it's to protect unsuspecting ova from HIM!
