Breaking news: Andrew Mason Announces Grouspawn

By September 29, 2010

Just now on stage at TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco, Andrew Mason of Groupon took the stage and announced a new launch called, “Grouspawn.”

Apparently Grouspawn is a dating site with social features baked in.

Andrew Mason has said that each year $60,000 will be set aside as a trust fund for “Groupon Babies” because he “feels a responsibility to all the babies his company has helped spawn.”

To apply, head on over to Grouspawn and fill out the application. Personally, I need to break up with my girlfriend, start dating her again and use a Groupon on the date. College for babies is expensive! Just, you know, in case we procreate.

Are we on the verge of the “Groupon Boomer” generation?

Straight from the site which looks right out of the 70’s (like the Internets would have been back then) we get a new definition:

Groupon Baby: A baby parented by a couple that used a Groupon on their first date.

It appears from the FAQ, Grouspawn is as serious as the Moon landings (which it said didn’t happen, LOL) and is looking for people to register their real life Grouspawn, should such progeny exist.

For those not yet avec bebe, Grouspawn offers up “hunks and she hunks” and the site lists five other places you can fall in love other than their site so that you can still produce a Grouspawn someday.

I can see it now in 15 years: “The Real Grouspawns of Chicago” on TLC where the fame of being the first children bred from Andrew Mason’s creation live out their lives on camera and deal with the pressures of… well, we’ll leave that for another day.

For now, head on over to Grouspawn and get chatting in the comments below. We want to know what you think!!!
