Not Exactly as Advertized

In a popular health magazine he came across an ad that guaranteed macho men a cure for a dreaded sexual dysfunction, and the answer to his many prayers, Amen! So off he flew to a local fish market and hoggishly bought the biggest sack of oysters he could carry – what the ad claimed was a proven natural aphrodisiac. And with unquestioning faith that night he shucked and ate them all until they vanished. Then hit the sack confident his virility would be restored like the ad had promised and sooner than he expected, for in the wee hours of the morning those oysters had worked their magic and, yes, he did “get up” but only to zoom like never before from bed to bathroom!

That sounds painful, accurate and reflects a weird poetic justice.
