World Cup Baby Boom

15 June 2010

Apparently, Korans love their soccer.  Then they love each other.

Headlines in the papers this week talk of the increase of sales of particular items this past weekend during Korea’s World Cup soccer game.  Whether people flocked to City Hall to watch the game, or stayed in their dongs and watched along the streets at their local pub, it is reported that they most purchased items of teh weekend were beer, fried chicken and condoms.

In fact, condom sales were five times higher than they were of the 2006 World Cup games.

I was talking to Korean Kelly about this this morning and she said that there was actually a slight baby boom after the last World Cup.

Soccer: bringing out the breeding in people.
