Obama Initiative

I read this in water sailing">Blue Water Sailing and laughed my ass off.

Pelosi cited the newly announced joint marketing effort between mast maker Southern Spars and the pharmaceutical company Pfizer, makers of Viagra. The two companies have launched a new advertising campaign targeted to the male sailing audience with their slogan; "A stiff rig is hard to beat". The first commercials are due to air during the next leg of the Volvo Ocean Race.

Boy, Steve, if you're getting your April Fool's jokes delivered five months late, you might not be spending enough time reading Cruisers Forum! From last April 1st:
