NEW YORK, NEW YORK (Evening Standard) -- Christopher Woods, 29, is suing the Novartis pharmaceutical company after its "Boost Plus" health drink allegedly provoked a nasty case of severe priapism (an erection that will not subside). The unscheduled "enhancement" was so bad, Woods needed two surgeries to provide relief. Despite the legal problems, Novartis stock went up.

Lawyers say this could be a hard case to win, but believe they're up to it. (Airfarcewon@aol.com)

His wife is suing the doctors who performed the surgery to repair the priapism. (scalpel@aol.com; tphyll@aol.com)

He decided to sue when he found out that cockfighting is illegal. (tphyll@aol.com) That does explain the rash of knocked-up chickens, though....

It was later determined, that the stock increase was due to a ten truckload sale to one Mrs. Christopher Woods. (Airfarcewon@aol.com)

The operation was a half-cocked idea... so two were necessary. (maxcel200@aol.com)

How much wood would Woods chuck, chuck; if Woods wood could chuck wood? (Grad2b2002@aol.com)
