A group of 1970s comedians has welcomed news that Viagra will soon be available over the counter without prescription, saying that it will give their drooping careers a new lease of life and enable them to be cutting-edge, relevant and part of the comedy zeitgeist once more.

Speaking from his home Jim Bowen said: ‘This is super, smashing, great. Now that Viagra is in the news it will allow me to get right back up again. Eh?..Eh?  Did you hear the one about the man who took two Viagra tablets? He tripped over the dog and pole vaulted out the bedroom window!

Curly-permed Liverpudlian, Stan Boardman, who until recently has been eking out a meagre existence by doing after dinner speaking engagements in golf clubs agreed. ‘Me and the other lads will be able to toss our hat into the ring for some big parts, now, if you know what I mean. It’ll still be hard. Now in addition to my one signature ‘Da Jayminz’ hilarious gag, I can be topical again with lines like ‘Why couldn’t they get the dead man’s coffin lid shut? Because he overdosed on Viagra.”

Other stars of hit show The Comedians were also said to be looking forward to being able to report on unlikely pharmacy scenarios where customers could talk about the first thing that comes up, as well as commentating on the Viagra addict who was said to be pleased that he could get it over the counter.

‘On a serious note though, there’ll still need to stiff regulation’, warned Bowen sagely. ‘Otherwise pop-up Viagra sellers will become a real bone of contention for pharmacies’.
