Viagra — it’s not just for mammals anymore

oysterViagra truly is a wonder drug — and not just for humans. First it rescued us from the horror of jet-lagged hamsters. Now comes word that it does wonders for bivalves … or at least their marketing. Some Aussie is feeding the stuff to oysters and claims that the result is a super-aphrodisiac.

“First of all, oysters are the greatest natural aphrodisiac, second, you lace it with Viagra, and third, it’s a laugh,” said George May.

Until he came down with prostrate cancer Mr. May was — no surprise — a marketing exec. You can tell he’s an Aussie marketing exec because he was honest enough to say, “it’s a laugh.” He faces only two problems with his new product: 1) He can’t sell his oysters in Australia because they contravene strict regulations; and 2) Pfizer won’t let him use the V word in his marketing.

May now has some 10 million oysters in cultivation and says he eats one to two dozen each day without any ill effects of consuming a foodstuff containing some medication.

But what kind of pearls do you get from them?

One thought on “Viagra — it’s not just for mammals anymore

  1. Am I the only guy who sees a frowning face in this oyster? I guess the viagra isn’t helping his mood at all. Actually, the droopy mouth makes me think he’s suffering from a stroke. Actually V is being studied as a treatment for stroke.
