Take 112,000 70-plus-year old men. Add Viagra, Levitra or Cialis. Shake vigorously (mobile intensive care units optional).
This is a recipe only a male mayor with his head in a very, very dark place could love, i.e., Mexico City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard. And just in time for the Christmas holiday season. What a guy.
I haven’t checked the stats lately, but I wonder how many of these macho men ended up in the heart attack wing of the ISSSTE hospitals, though supposedly they had medical checkups before. They’ve had about 10 days of whoopee time so far. Hopefully with their legitimate spouses (of equal or greater age). I mean, there’s no sense in adding several thousand more souls to the 8.7 million that already live in the Federal District, huh.
According to Ebrard, sexuality “has a lot to do with quality of life and our happiness.” What about food and shelter? A full tummy is a happy tummy, I always say. So is living in a home with no holes in the walls.
And you know what’s even worse? HE’S NOT THE FIRST MAYOR TO MAKE VIAGRA PART OF HIS PLATFORM. Earlier this year, the mayor of the town of Lo Prado in Chile gave out free Viagra to men 60 and older in his town, also ostensible to improve their “quality of life” four times a month.
How about handing out condoms? Wouldn’t it improve quality of life to have less niños? So parents could feed and clothe maybe a couple instead of a dozen? But that’s just me.
