The headlines (excuse the pun) and the inserts (again excuse the pun) could have been endless in this article but sadly the Fool's ability to laugh at itself in this article petered out.Believe me, Todd, we rose to the occasion here at HQ, but just didn't feel it was appropriate to insert these ticklers into the piece. As the author of the story, I knew it could have been better than my classic Disney's Pooh Problems:"The real mess would hit the fan if the family decides to wipe Pooh from all Disney properties. The company's lawyers say the Slesingers have no legal basis to withhold Disney's right to Pooh, but the family's attorneys disagree."http://www.fool.com/news/take/2002/take020131.htm#disneyOne of our internal suggestions for the Viagra piece was this:"But it will take stimulation to rise to Viagra's level of satisfaction, or do you see a climactic end to Viagra's penetration?"Like I said, however, we decided to put a zipper on our sense of humor for this particular story (think "Something About Mary"), and settled for only this subtlest of prods: "Are there any differences in the three products? It's hard to say because there have been no head-to-head tests."Thank you for your concern, but we can assure your we kept our humor tucked away for this story only.Yours in comedy,Rex
