And You Thought You Had Problems


A 68 year old Rhode Island man has just been awarded 400,000 dollars due to a faulty medical procedure. A penile implant has gave him an erection for the past ten years.

The device was supposed to allow men to turn it up for usage and down when not in use. His won't turn down. He is embarrassed by the situation and is living as a virtual recluse even scared to be with his own grandchildren.

I wonder if it was due to one of them yelling, " Ewww, Grampa's got a Chubby."

For more info. Click here for the news story.

Oh my...hmmmm. maybe he could hang his towel off of it while he shaves? I think he should stay away from small children and big animals.

:P fuzzbox said...

catch: Yeh cats could mistake it for a scratching pole. This guy has some bad luck but mine would have probably been worse. It would stick in the down position making it worthless or started spinning when switching positions and kept on spinning so it would look like I was keeping a ceiling fan in my pants.

Yikes! His poor wife must be worn right out. LOL!

Oooh, Gramps got it hard.
I heard about this today while listening to the Distorted View podcast.
I think Time Henson said the guy had a malfunctioning Robo-cock. Gramps had an erection for like 7 years. No wonder Grandma was always smiling like the damn Moana Lisa (misspelling intentional)

Okay, now where exactly does this guy live? And has anyone seen a picture of him? Just askin'. sorry.

It is interesting. My dad's so proud of his viagra he practically wears a sign around his neck - "Ready when you are, In about a half hour!" I'm thinking if this were him he'd be walking around nekkid all the time instead of hiding in his house. I know - Eeeeewwww.

Big Pissy said...

*LOL* Guess this is a case of being careful what ya ask for, huh? ;-)

Bruce said...

I'm thinking he has to tell his tailor that he dresses straight ahead...

Phats said...

HAHA that's hilarious! Did you see that episode of grey's anatomy, where the guy slept with meredith and couldn't get rid of his erection haha so funny

kandykane said...

that truly could be called a 'blessing in disguise' for some and 'threat to viagra' for others...

Pixie said...

TMI
:\

So...what does Grandpa look like? Does anyone have his number? Is this like a hot, distinguished looking 68 year old or is he all shrivled and icky? Does he look like Sean Connery or Kirk Douglas?

ozymandiaz said...

See this is just a missed opportunity. If you get lemons, make lemonade right? His lemon just needed some squeezin' that’s all. In that situation, I would have been hangin in every bar with tight pants on...

Ol' Lady said...

Could you say this guy has had a hard life lately?

angel, jr. said...

A whole new situation for having them sit on his lap.

:P fuzzbox said...

sherri: I would imagine that the thrill is gone by now.

michael: Punny but phunny. Hey since you are a seeker of jokes. I heard a really sick one yesterday. Do you know what Michael Jackson and caviar have in commen? They both come on little white crackers. Truly Tasteless, huh.

vic: I searched though both Google and Yahoo images for a pic of the guy and could find nothing. I guess he is a little stuck up.

pissy: That certainly is one moral to the story.

bruce: I would imagine that he wears baggies. Or a pup tent.

:P fuzzbox said...

phats: All the commercials for impotence aids warn of the four hour erection. But ten years is phunny overkill.

kandykane: It might be hard to disguise that blessing. Thanks for dropping in. I appreciate it.

pixie: But it is phunny.

whoami: I am guessing that he looks like the old shriveled balls guy in 'Big Daddy.'

ozy: He is bound to be a hit at Bingo Parlors.

ol' lady: That's phunny.

angel, jr: He might have a hard time getting a job as Santa Claus.

Green Eyes said...

LMAO, a "Chubby?" Damn, haven't heard that one in awhile!

Oh, sorry for grandpa, really, I am!

Jenna Howard said...

I all of a sudden have the orphans from Annie singing in my head "It's a Hard Knocked Life."

Ten years? Tiring.

Jenna Howard said...

I just read the article and this line The implant consists of a series of plastic plates strung together with steel surgical wire, almost like a roll of wrapped coins. made me cringe and I'm a girl!!!

Mimi said...

I don't know who has it harder, him or his wife.

:P fuzzbox said...

green eyes: I have always liked that term for some reason.

jenna: It is described kinda like an industrial slinky gone bad.

mimi: I am going to say his wife probably has the hardest boat to row.

oldfartswife said...

I have never heard the word "chubby"-I like it.
I am not one for surgery, unless it is a life and death thing.
My bro-in-law passed away last year, he was 54 years old and had a heart attack, they think the viagra caused the problems.
But for a while he could screw like he did when he was 23.

Leigh said...

I am sure his situation could have been a lot worse, It could always be limp and never get hard? Although it must be hard to pee, and his wife must be tired, and the grand children....yes that part would be uncomfortable.

Have a great day.

Jamie Dawn said...

That poor man!
I would think he could wear ultra strong spandex underwear and a kilt to go out in public. The stiffy would have to be situated just so and smashed it into place.
But, if one of his grandkids sits on his lap... there's no hiding it.

:P fuzzbox said...

oldfartswife: I am sorry to hear that. 54 is much too young to leave this world. But for a while at least he recaptured some of his youth.

leigh: That would have been my luck. To have been stuck in the down position.

jamie dawn: Spandex would be a great idea for that guy. He might go with the whole Spandex outfit and made himself a new superhero. 'Sargeant Stiffy'.
