Why Not Viagra?

This is non-Michigan related, but it is my blog so shut up.

After having just watched one of the more pointless but insanely cute video packages about pandas on NBC's coverage of the Olympics, I think preservationists are overlooking the easiest and most straightforward solution to avoid extinction of pandas and other sexually adverse creatures.

Why aren't they using, or at least researching, Viagra on the pandas? The NBC video indicated that the Chinese zoologists feed special "Super Stud" (no joke) pandas an enhanced menu, work out their back legs with panda aerobics, and finally resort to videos of panda coupling (again, no joke). All of this seems like an awful lot of work, when the solution might be as easy as popping one little blue pill. It is possible the pandas would require more than one pill because they are so big, but I think the panda insurance should kick in to pay for the additional requirement. It would not be good business for the many panda insurance companies to let their primary demographic go extinct because then who would they insure and service? Big picture, people, big picture.

NBC has way too much airtime to fill and not always enough worthwhile material to fill the time, but it does allow me to think of ways to solve the world's panda shortfall epidemic. If they heed my words, we may have to start eating panda to quell their overpopulation.

the Olympics on NBC constantly reminds me why some genius invented TiVo. You can watch the meat of a 4 hr NBC broadcast in approximately 45 min.
