Nice Move

And no, it wasn’t Barry Obama, but seeing the POTUS on a bicycle makes me laugh 10 times out of 10. His dad jeans/helmet/tucked in polo combo owns the mountain bike game. Just look at him. He looks like the leader of a nerdy 12-speed gang.

To the real story: a 22-year-old Irishman was staring down at a 7-week-long boner after a ride on his mountain bike ended poorly. A crash sent his package into the handlebars, screwing up his situation something serious. The condition he suffered is something called “high-flow” priapism “with rigid erection,” and it caused his penis to go erect, and remain erect for nearly two months.

The young Mick, for a reason that’s not explained, let his boner stand for FIVE WEEKS before deciding to seek a medical opinion at Dublin’s Tallaght Hospital. After two weeks of treatment, his erection subsided.

From the Irish Examiner:

Medics eventually treated the man after inserting gel foam and four tiny platinum coils at an abnormal connection between an artery and a vein that supplied blood to the man’s penis. This reduced the high-flow blood supply to the penis, ending the erection.

He is expected to make a full recovery.
