Australian marketing executive George May is growing oysters in Viagra-infused water and intends to sell them in Asia as a doubly potent aphrodisiac (oysters being reputed for centuries to put people in the mood). The product is still in R&D, and Pfizer is threatening to sue May for using the term ViagraOysters, but this idea just might be crazy enough to work... at least in China, where intellectual property is not exactly a respected notion.

(via The Gist, which intimates that bizarre, questionable usage of Viagra has jumped the shark.)
