Man Sues Over Hard-On

Of all of the reasons to sue, I wouldn't have guessed that this is one, but welcome to the tort climate of the US.

Christopher Woods (that is sort of a hard-on name, btw), drank the health drink Boost Plus and got a woodie that just wouldn't go away. From the article,
A man has sued the maker of the health drink Boost Plus, claiming the vitamin-enriched beverage gave him an erection that would not subside and caused him to be hospitalized.

The lawsuit filed by Christopher Woods of New York said he bought the nutrition beverage made by the pharmaceutical company Novartis AG at a drugstore on June 5, 2004, and drank it.

Woods' court papers say he woke up the next morning "with an erection that would not subside" and sought treatment that day for the condition, called severe priapism.

They say Woods, 29, underwent surgery for implantation of a Winter shunt, which moves blood from one area to another.
The Winter shunt sounds painful and what is that anyway? But I would hope that a 29 year-old guy with a major hard-on could find a lot more satisfaction in the Big Apple than he would in court.
