PUNS GONE WRONG

Look, I love a good New York Post headline just as much as the next guy.  News is just more fun when it’s full of puns and double-entendres. But sometimes the Post goes a wee bit too far.  Like today’s headline:

“A Kiddie Viagra May Get Pfizer a Patent Extension.”

https://mail.google.com/a/minyanville.com/?ui=2&ik=418cd7bb03&view=att&th=12a196b98d971e25&attid=0.1&disp=inline&realattid=f_gc69h4590&zw

Kiddie? Viagra? Extension?! I feel like I should go to jail just saying those three words in succession.

Anyway, the headline aside, the point of the article is fairly fascinating, and yes, it hinges on the fact that Pfizer (PFE) is planning to sell a children’s form of Viagra “to treat a rare lung disorder as a humanitarian gesture-- in exchange for getting a six-month extension of its patent on the adult version.”

If Viagra meets the FDA requirements, Pfizer would get 6 more months to sell Viagra before it goes generic.
