An otherwise normal father-of-two, Daniel Medforth, took 35 erection enhancing Viagra tablets to impress his mates, and was then (bizarrely) surprised when his boner wouldn't go away and he ended up in hospital. The lesson: Don't be a dick with your dick.

Ever got in from a night out feeling frisky and found that you might have had one too many whiskies to perform?

Well, that wasn't a problem for Daniel Medforth - he still ended up frustrated though as his wife sent him off in an ambulance instead.

In an act of drunken madness he took 35 Viagra pills 'for a laugh' and ended up with an erection for 5 days.

Eventually he came clean to his wife - who mysteriously hadn't noticed him walking around with a massive boner - who told him to go to hospital.

The plasterer, from Withernsea in Yorkshire, was kept in for a day and a half for observation (and presumably so everyone working could see him and have a good laugh) before returning home.

Viagra can be dangerous if not taken properly - In this case 'properly' is a word that means DON'T TAKE 35 OF THE FUCKING THINGS.

He told The Sun: "Everything I saw was green, and I had a massive erection that would not go away.

"It wasn't a permanent erection but every time I brushed against something for five days it sprang into life.

"I eventually confessed what I had done to my wife and she called an ambulance. The paramedics were very professional but you could see they were trying not to laugh.

"The doctors and nurses told me off. Fortunately my wife has forgiven me and I realise I have been very, very lucky."

Viagra can make you feel dizzy and sick, and can lower blood pressure to potentially dangerous levels.

Dr Nitin Shori, Medical Director of the Pharmacy2U Online doctor service warns: "It should not be taken for recreational purposes. You should consult with a medical profession before taking Viagra to ensure it is a suitable treatment. Like all medication, it is extremely important to only take it as prescribed.

"Exceeding recommended limits can have serious consequences. One of the dangers is a serious drop in blood pressure that can cause a patient to collapse. It can also cause an extended erection which can require hospital admission to prevent damage to the penis."

Pretty serious stuff, no? Definitely not the kind of thing you should be doing to impress your mates, so next time you are on a two day bender and someone breaks out the Viagra - remember Daniel's story.

I'm not saying it's the most stupid thing I've ever heard, but it provides some stiff competition. (Sorry).
