A tale that will wipe the smile of Bob's face
Was a 40-year-old Korean national visiting Southern California hoping to obtain the biggest, longest-lasting erection in world history?

Or did he just want everybody he knew to be, well, excited for weeks?

Authorities briefly detained the unidentified tourist earlier this month at Los Angeles International Airport after U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents found a whopping 63.3 pounds of erectile dysfunction medicine in his carry-on luggage.

According to a Department of Homeland Security press release issued today, on-the-ball inspection agents found two, heat sealed pouches containing a white, powdery substance.

The man claimed it was a "Chinese herb," but lab testing determined that the substance was tadalafil, which is commonly known as Cialis.

Officials claim the man did not have government permission to import the substance.

Jaime Ruiz, a CBP spokesperson, said the investigation is ongoing.

"We aren't releasing his name," Ruiz told the Weekly. "He is under investigation. He was not arrested when he arrived because the substance was not a narcotic--cocaine, heroin, etc."

What's the big deal about bring in election material?  Ballots, background material etc.

Ooops, sorry, it was ERECTION not election material.  I misread it.

But, anyway, what is all the hub bub.  I always wonder when people discriminate against ornamental people, that it not right.

Personal use? Really? 63 POUNDS? 10 mg standard dose => 2,800,000 doses (100 10 mg in a gram, 28 grams/oz, 16 oz/lb, times 63, approximately). That's a  7600 year supply at one per day.

I have to assume you were being tongue-in-cheek.
