Male adults are to be outlawed under plans being considered by the Government, it has emerged.
The move was revealed after MPs voted to scrap the laws forcing clinics to consider the need for a "father and mother" before allowing women to seek IVF treatment.
"Government advisors have now been left wondering 'what is the point of men?'," said Number 10 spokesman James Wattana.
Following the decision by MPs, single women and lesbian couples will be able to seek fertility treatment without having to consider a father for their children.
Former snooker ace Wattana added: "This means we can feasibly get along without men so we put two and two together. Well, one of the cleverer girls in the office did.
"If we are able to pack them up and send them off then their constant wind breaking and love of cars will be a thing of the past and that can only be good for the environment.
"The Home Secretary also expects cases of domestic violence to drop by at least 4 per cent if we get rid of men. This is a decision that makes sense for Britain."
Under the proposals being considered by the Government, MPs will be exempt from the rules.
It is not expected that the prohibition of male adults will enter the statute book before 2013. Mr Wattana explained: "We don't want to completely muck up our chances of winning a bronze at the London Olympics so will probably leave it until then."
But Conservative spokesman Camberwick Green said something reactionary yet of little consequence.
