    OT - I hate it when this happens!

    This was on FSN this morning.

    REAL STIFF DRINK
    MAN SUES SHAKE MAKER FOR 3-DAY ORDEAL
    By DAREH GREGORIAN and DOUGLAS MONTERO
    -- A Harlem man has filed suit against the makers of the nutritional drink Boost, charging that the protein shake gave him the wrong kind of lift.

    Christopher Woods said that drinking cans of Boost Plus Nutritional Energy Drink left him with an erection that wouldn't go away.

    According to papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Woods was "caused to suffer and sustain severe bodily injuries" from "the erection that would not subside."

    "It gave me a lot of energy - too much energy," Woods, 29, told The Post yesterday.

    "It was unbearable and embarrassing."

    He said he had to undergo two medical procedures for relief from the days-long erection, and as a result, he's now partially impotent.

    "It's affecting my life because I'm not getting the pleasure I used to," Woods said.

    The suit, which seeks unspecified monetary damages for Woods' "pain, shock and mental anguish," names the drink's former manufacturer, Mead Johnson, and its current one, Novartis.

    Mead Johnson said it no longer has anything to do with the drink, and reps for Novartis did not return calls for comment.

    The Woods vs. Johnson case dates to June 2004, which is when he said his mother bought him a case of the protein drink in hopes he would bulk up.

    "It was supposed to be a health supplement," he said.

    The suit says he used the "product in accordance with its intended use" - and soon had a very visible side effect.

    He said the erection lasted for over three days, and his girlfriend "was in disbelief. She couldn't understand what was happening."

    "It was awful. It was painful. I would always wear jeans, but it was hard to go out, so I had to buy some sweatpants," Woods said.

    He said his 7-year-old son asked him what was going on and "I didn't know what to tell him."

    He saw a doctor and underwent a "winter shunt" - a painful procedure where a needle is used to drain blood. The suit says he experienced "persistent problems requiring a follow-up hospital visit" a week later.

    Woods said he was given two choices - undergo either an embolization, where blood is blocked from going to the arteries, or an amputation. He chose the former, but it has made it difficult for him to get a full erection and left him in "a state of discomfort."

    Woods said the experience has affected his love life because it's made him very self-conscious.

    You guys ever seen the Chris Rock bit. Im paraphrasing but it goes something like "The viagra commercial says if you have an erection lasting more than 4 hours, call a doctor immediately. If i have an erection last more than 4 hours, Im calling a hooker!'

    Obviously a case of me not reading the whole post!

    How many cans of this crap did he drink?

    And I hate to assume / use stereotypes here, but if he was a Harlem man, than Im guessing given someone of that (ahem!) size, then yeah I guess it could be painful...esp sitting down...

    And sourceworx I agree - just rub one out and see if that works. No Id rather wait and get blood removed from my penis....ugh
