This came out of nowhere. In Pakistan, merchants are apparently selling generic Viagra knockoff pills against erectile dysfunction. And how do they advertise them? By slamming Obama’s face on the package, as a “symbol of strength and virility.”

On some packages Obama gives a thumbs-up sign, on others he appears James-Bond-like, with a silenced gun, just in case somebody needed an extra load of phallic symbolism. Oh, and the pills are supposedly smuggled into Pakistan from Afghanistan.

Bonus quote from a resident of the border region between Pakistan and Afghanistan, where the pills are sold:

They help anyone who is unable to have sex, they improve the duration for people who have destroyed their youth through masturbation [!] [emphasis mine]

Oh my!
