Viagra over the counter – what could possibly go wrong?

I guess because not enough men are already taking the prescription drug Viagra, a drugstore chain in Britain is about to start selling the blue impotence pills over the counter, and they’ve chosen Valentine’s Day to begin.

Here’s the possible rub. The pills are expensive – nearly $25 each – so many men may end up having to choose between spending their Valentine’s Day money on red roses, or blue pills. I know where I think the lines are going to be. Here’s the story:love.jpg
