The Speedy-Mart In Friendswood, Meeting All Your Viagra Needs

It's tough getting an edge in the convenience-store game. Exxon's coffee is as shitty as Shell's, the price for a pair of tallboys is about the same, gas is gas.

So if you're Ashish Shrestha of Friendswood, and you're running a Speedy-Mart, you go the extra mile.

Some over-the-counter, no-prescription-needed Viagra? Step right up. Oh, and have a Slim Jim while you're at it.

KHOU reports that Friendswood police have arrested Shrestha on charges of delivering a dangerous a substance. (Dangerous.....to the ladies.)

"Police received complaints from residents in the area that the store might be selling the drug illegally," the station reported. "Undercover officers were able to freely purchase the drug at the store."

"Undercover officers also emphasized 'It's not like we need this stuff or anything, if you know what we mean,'" the story didn't go on to say.

We are assuming the "Bananas & Boners" special is now longer valid at Speedy-Mart.
