According to the DenverPost.com a New York lawyer has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a California man against a slew of international companies that produce, distribute and sell a product known as “VigRx Oil.” This product, advertised by radio, TV infomercial (featuring porn star Ron Jeremy) and untold amounts of spam including blog comment spam, claims to permanently enlarge your penis as well as cure erectile dysfunction and can cost upwards of $110 per bottle. All you do is rub the oil on as directed and sit back and wait. Except it doesn’t work and now someone has finally gotten around to suing over it.
The most amusing quote from this news article is:
“I was wondering for a long time why no one has gotten around to suing these penis-enlargement guys, because it seems like a pretty blatant … fraud,” said New York lawyer Brad Corsello, who filed the lawsuit on behalf of Californian Jeffery Horton.
This shouldn’t be too big of a surprise as it requires a plaintiff who A) has to admit he thought his wee-willy was more “wee” than he was happy with and B) has to admit he was dumb enough to spend $110 on bottle of oil to try and make it bigger.
Anyone who devotes even casual attention to stupid lawsuits, however, has recognized a long time ago that the trend among stupid people recently is to allow their sense of greed to overpower their sense of embarrassment in the hopes of attaining a large cash settlement. So the fact that someone finally has come forward to sue the penis-enlargement peddlers isn’t as surprising as you might think.
After all, admitting you have a small dinky isn’t all that much of a problem if you have large sums of cash to offset it with. I doubt this will put much of a dent in the peddlers of this snake-oil as there’s more than one company out there pushing these craptastic products, but it’s a start.
