    Man, do I hate those 8-hour erections.

    And should you have an erection lasting four hours or more — good luck getting your buds to believe you.

    I should’ve added who hates them even more than I do: my wife. (Rimshot.)

    I always wondered about that “more than 4 hours, see a doctor” thing. I mean, you can’t find a family doctor on short notice, so you’ve got to go to the hospital. There’s travel time, and then emergency rooms can have a couple hours’ wait. So when do you go? At what point do you say “this isn’t going away”?
