too fruity by half

September 7, 2006

“A BERRY said to boost sex drive will go on sale at Tesco this week. The Tibetan goji is also believed to raise energy levels and offer a wide range of health benefits. Packed with 500 times more vitamin C than oranges, the red fruits taste like a cross between cranberries and cherries.”

I would have thought that the most cursory surfing of the internet would have suggested that there should be a berry to reduce sex drive rather than increase it. I trust that Tesco will keep them on the top shelf wrapped in brown paper next to the comdoms and that cashiers will embarrass the weedy little men (presumably) buying them by calling out ‘a kilo of sex berries’. No doubt there will soon be fake goji berries offered on the internet. I, for one, will not be buying them. The only section of the planet’s population who will benefit (apart from the no doubt sexually vigorous Tibetan farmers who grow them and people like Tibetan Goji Berry Company) are the tigers.
