This, this is pretty crazy if you ask me. It would appear that many men (sometimes a more than 50 percent increase) opt to get a vasectomy in March in order to cash in on the couple days off it affords in order to watch the NCAA Tournament.
"It's really the best of both worlds," said Dr. Y. Mark Hong, a urological surgeon with Affiliated Urologists in Phoenix, Ariz. "One of the biggest things for me as a surgeon is to make sure my guys are just taking it easy afterwards."
Some clinics have embraced it to such an extent that they use the days off as a sales pitch and run promotions such as "Vasectomy Madness." "Virginia Urologists promote uninterrupted couch time as a major plus to having a piece of your vas deferens snipped. 'Spend 3 days on the couch watching hoops with your wife's approval!' the site proclaims."
Those damn women. Always up your ass about something, right fellas? Go get your nuts sliced open and get away from it all.
