Is It Mahogany or Is It Pine?

Road signsThis billboard is popping up (no pun intended) all over the place lately. Must be a new ad campaign. Talk about putting it out there.

Sign says: "Achieve a Grade 4 woodie with Viagra." First, what is a grade 3 woodie? And is that a graphic for a…? Yeah, it's gotta be. It reminds me of the "0 to 60 in under a minute" commercials.

For what it's worth, I appreciate the unabashed freedom to say it like it is. Why beat around the… OK, yeah, I'm not touching that with a 10 foot pole.


After I posted this morning, in the comments, Chuck directed me to the following video. Cuba Gooding, Jr. does a Cialis commercial? Looks like it:

My husband informs me that "he that would pun would pick a pocket." Thanks, honey. Let's just say I'm having a lowbrow day.


Sally and her family lived in Costa Rica from 2006 to 2010. They miss the pura vida and the wonderful friends they made there everyday.

Now back in the states, Sally is a Functional Medicine & Nutrition practitioner-in-training, homesteader, chickenista, recovering REALTOR® and bio-hacker. You can find her at Nourishing Liberty. The adventure continues!

    Didja hear about the guy that was swallowing a Viagra but it got stuck part way down, and now he’s got a stiff neck? Or that they’re giving Viagra now to the old guys at the rest home because it keeps them from rolling out of bed? (And check out this “Cialis ad” featuring Cuba Gooding Jr: )

  • First, what is a grade 3 woodie?
    If you really want to know, see Hardness matters — though somehow it’s a little more amusing in Spanish. (Why the musical background for the video is in English, I don’t know.)

  • “Como la primera vez.” God, I hope not. Anyway… and how come they don’t show the old folks getting it on at the end of the video? Just the teenagers??? Thank you for answering my question, Coises. Now I know everything.

  • OMG, Chuck, that video is so funny… I’m putting it on the post. Too silly!

  • I think the idea is that the man will become so strong and virile, you’ll both think you’re teenagers again. Of course, if it’s really like the first time, they left out the part where he scampers down the fire escape in his underwear because her parents are coming in the front door, and a couple weeks later she gets to experience her first time trying to pee on a little plastic stick.

  • Ah… I get it. You are funny!

    Sally, Coises got it.
    Notice her dress is the same: she -they both- get younger in each scene….
    But you already figured that out.
