the thinning of the constantly humping shrew

Here’s a nice, little news story for those of you in the audience who actually believed that story the other day about the Japanese who had been tricked into buying sheep, thinking that they were poodles. It appears as though Scottish scientists have developed a pill which promises to “boost women’s libido and reduce their appetite.” Here’s a clip from the BBC report:

…The hormone-releasing pill has so far only been given to female monkeys and shrews who displayed more mating behaviour and ate less…..

The Edinburgh team, led by Professor Robert Millar, have been looking at the properties Type 2 Gonadotrophin-releasing hormone.

When it was given to monkeys, they displayed mating behaviour such as tongue-flicking and eyebrow-raising to the males, while female shrews displayed their feelings via “rump presentation and tail wagging”.

But the animals also ate around a third less food than they normally would…

The inclusion of the shrew is what tipped me to it being a fake. No one uses shrews in medical experiments. And then, of course, there’s the professor sharing a name with a famous Scottish cyclist… So, if you’re hoping to turn your female partner into a rump-presenting, boney sex machine, I wouldn’t hold my breath.

    But the tongue-flicking and eyebrow-raising is not to be missed!
