IMPOTENCE STORY

IT SEEMS THAT JOE WAS HAVING TROUBLE FULFILLING HIS SEXUAL
OBLIGATIONS TO HIS SPOUSE. HE WENT TO HIS DOCTOR WHO
OFFERED HIM A SOLUTION.
THE DOCTOR SAID, "JOE, WE HAVE JUST MADE A BREAKTHROUGH
IN THIS AREA. WE HAVE DEVELOPED A PILL WHICH RESULTS
IN AN ERECTION. HOWEVER, WE ARE NOT SURE HOW SAFE
THEY ARE; THEREFORE, YOU MAKE (SURE) NOT TO TAKE MORE
THAN THREE PILLS A YEAR OR THEY WILL PROBABLY RESULT IN
YOUR DEATH."
NEEDLESS TO SAY, JOE TOOK THE PILLS, BUT LEARNED FROM
THE DOCTOR THAT THE SOUND BEEP-BEEP WOULD TERMINATE THE
ERECTION. AS SOON AS JOE LEFT THE OFFICE, HE TRIED A
PILL. STANDING AND WAITING FOR THE ELEVATOR, HE WAS
EMBARRASSED, AS HE HAD AN ERECTION AS HE HADN'T HAD IN
TWENTY YEARS. BECAUSE A CROWD HAD GATHERED, HE WAS
FORCED TO SAY BEEP-BEEP. THE ERECTION ENDED
IMMEDIATELY. RUSHING HOME HE SAW HIS WIFE ON THE
PORCH. HE YELLED FOR HER TO GO INSIDE AND GET
UNDRESSED AND HE SWALLOWED A PILL. AS HE WAS RUNNING
IN TO THE HOUSE, A CAR PASSED AND A FRIEND WAVED AND
TOOTED BEEP-BEEP. SWEARING AS THE ERECTION DIED, HE
FOLLOWED HIS WIFE INTO THE BEDROOM AND TOOK THE LAST
OF THE PILLS. AS HIW WIFE JUMPED ON THE BED, SHE
TURNED TO HIM AND ASKED, "WHAT IS ALL THIS BEEP-BEEP
CRAP?"
