      That stiffness may end up being an outright rigor mortis if the drinker is on a high blood pressure medication.

      The ban was put in place after an inspector got a hot tip.

    My main question is: why?

    What's the motivation for them to put viagra in their knock-off booze? I can understand people putting in methanol or the likes, but Viagra? Why?

      Perhaps sinadefil production is a side-line, and the kit is contaminated?

      What I can't fathom is how someone decided to *test* for sinadefil contamination of hooch?

        I suspect the unexpected side effects. A stiff drink is normally not followed by stiffness elsewhere, so someone must have had a heads up, pardon the pun :).

        Probably got suspicious after tying one on, then realising he couldn't roll over in bed.

      It's a very common translation error. They couldn't get enough wood alcohol so they thought they were using the next best thing...

        It's a publicity stunt

        What better to get people to buy their alcohol?

    Contamination?

    Is it really contamination when it's blatantly intentionally been added?

      Tell you what. Let me take your beer to the bathroom for a moment and you can tell me.

      It isn't contamination as long as they change the name of the product to "Doctor Porkenheimer's Boner Juice"...

    Taking the "piss" perhaps?

    Drinking water plants all over the world fail to treat water for a wide variety of drugs such as antibiotics, birth control, pain medication, etc that people excrete every day. Why would they make a special effort to treat for Viagra?

    The reason is simple, the Viagra is already in the "drinking water" and the batch of wine had drinking water in it.

      Or perhaps it came from the chem-trail of a low flying aircraft.

        If I were you I'd delete that comment and re-post as an AC. You don't want the lizard people knowing your identity.

      If they made that wine with CHINESE drinking water, it was probably not fit for human consumption !!!

      (It is so bad, I even run the bottled water through a military grade filter before daring to drink)

      Yes, I thought this was good news for bears and rhinos and anything else that means 'strength' and 'hard horniness' to old rich guys in China.

      For the naming committee, it was a long, hard decision meeting. It wasn't unanimous and had a messy climax.

    Getting a rise

    As President Lincoln said of General Grant's drinking, "Find out what he drinks and send some to my other generals."

    If we can't get good law from them, maybe some imported "Kung Fu" would get at least a rise out of Congress.
