"Patients in the study reported success in achieving erections over a period of 24 to 36
hours after taking a 20-milligram pill of Cialis, said Indianapolis-based Lilly and
Bothell, Wash.-based Icos on Saturday."  I had to laugh thinking about the possibility of
walking around for 36 hours "at attention".  (Of course, I know that's not what the
article said -- it's just the first thing that came to mind.)

It reminded me of the old joke about a man who walks into a drug store and goes to the
pharmacy counter, staffed by two female pharmacists.  "How can I help you?" one of them
asks.

The man drops his pants and shows his erection to the two women.  "I've had this for seven
days straight and it doesn't appear to be going away," he says.  "What can you give me for
this?"

The two women confer. After a moment, one turns to him and says, "Well, we can give you
$100,000 a year and a half interest in the business."
