Money causes impotence

Sunday Herald Sun

BERLIN: A German claims the switch to the European single currency has left him bankrupt in the bedroom.

Wolfgang Fritz says that after handling his country's newly-issued 10-euro notes, he became impotent -- and is planning to sue the state for free Viagra to get his love life up to the mark again.

"I'm dead in the bedroom," declared the 55-year-old Berliner. "I haven't had a spark down there since I started using the notes.

"I'm OK with the other denominations -- it's just the 10-euro. It started with headaches and just got worse. It would be funny if it were not so pathetic."

His girlfriend, Carola Seiffert, said: "It's led to a deeply unhappy household."

Mr Fritz is one of thousands of Germans who are claiming they have been struck by allergies and ailments after handling the note, which is worth about $16.50.

Sufferers say the culprit is a chemical called tributyltin, used only in the 10-euro note.

Tributyltin, also known as TBT, is part of a tin alloy used in the 10-euro notes during printing to stop them being bleached by sunlight.

The German Government initially called claims about the ailments spurious, but said yesterday: "If tests prove these notes are unsafe, they must be withdrawn."

It is little consolation to Mr Fritz, who has learned the tough way that money can't buy you love. "Let them come to my bedroom and see how spurious I am," he said. "I am ruined as a man."

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
