Bill Control Pill

One of my favourite jokes used to be the one about the new birth control pill in development for men : you take it the morning after and it changes your blood type. Well ladies, my days of joke-telling are done until somebody starts paying me to do it in front of an audience. Here's what yesterday's Daily Mail had to say about the Bill Control Pill :

British scientists have developed a revolutionary pill that men could take as a one-off contraceptive just before a date. The tablet would prevent a man from being able to impregnate a woman, but within a few hours his fertility would return to normal.

And of course the ONLY thing that counts, gentlemen...

Sexual satisfaction is not affected ...
The contraceptive was inspired by the observation that some drugs used to treat schizophrenia and high blood pressure also prevent ejaculation. After pinning down how the drugs stop ejaculation, the London researchers set about creating tablets that do the same thing.

Hmm, I wonder what happens if Bill pops a couple dozen at once? We'll find out in about 5 years when the new pill is expected to hit the market.
