British Irony

A number of my American friends are still somewhat baffled by this concept of Irony and the British sense of humour (with a ‘u’). How about this:

Today is February 14th - Valentine’s Day. Whooopeee.!

In the UK it is also National Erectile Dysfunction Day. (True).

Now THAT is British irony at work!

Hi Ray - gotta love irony, doubtless we can at least keep a stiff upper lip.

Impotence (erectile dysfunction) is far more prevalent than statistics show. The majority of sufferers chosing not to address their problem through embarrassment. The social stigma that men perceive is sufficient to stop many coming forward. Most men will have experienced unsatisfactory performance during sex. If more came forward there would be better understanding of the problem, which is generally a lack of good blood flow to the genital area. There are many products which now claim to help assist or cure. To date the only non chemical solution that is supported by any clinical trials is a little known herb- Butea Superba which has improved erectile function in over 80% of users. Grown under Government license in the Far East and now availbale in pill form in the West under the brand name HealthyED. Buying direct on the internet is now possible at www.healthyed.co.uk and from a personal perspective I can say they have worked for me, initially improving my performance but mostly improving my confidence.
