TRENTON, N.J. - Men who are bashful about needing help in the bedroom no longer have to go to the drugstore to buy that little blue pill.

In a first for the drug industry, Pfizer Inc. told The Associated Press that the drugmaker will begin selling its popular erectile dysfunction pill Viagra to patients on its website.

Men still will need a prescription to buy the blue, diamond-shaped pill on viagra.com, but they no longer have to face a pharmacist to get it filled. And for those who are bothered by Viagra's steep $25-a-pill price, Pfizer is offering three free pills with the first order and 30 percent off the second one.

There are already multiple “research chemical” websites selling the same drugs as Viagra and Cialis for a fraction of the price.

So I never hear from my brother.

But out of the blue he calls me the other day.

He wants to talk about his erection lasting more than 4 hours.

“Shouldn’t you be calling your doctor?” I ask.

“Are you kidding?” he retorts. “I’m tellin’ EVERYBODY!”

The warning on Dark’s coffee is 12 hours, I think. Not unlike this article, I never bothered to actually read it.

British military officers rub a tablet on their top lip every morning.

Helps them maintain a stiff upper lip, what!

I must be dim today. People have been getting their prescriptions by mail for the past decade at least so why is this a first?

“Somebody stole a shipment of Viagra and the cops are looking for hardened criminals.”

Maybe the culprits are loggers with chainsaws and morning wood.

$25 is pretty steep for a pill that was supposed to off patent last year in March. America is the only country recognizing this blatant rip-off. Mexico, Canada and India told them to stuff it.

It’s a first because Pfizer is selling directly to the public, and not coincidentally allowing men to keep a certain prescription off their local medical records.

Michael Caine as Nigel Powers (from “Goldmember”):

“I took a Viagra, it stuck in me throat and I’ve had a stiff neck for hours.”
