It’s the silly season!

By Prof Dr Ian Blackshaw

At this time of the year, when the media are often short of stories, not perhaps this year with so much going on in the world, it is known, in journalistic circles, as ‘the silly season’. For example, and, not without justification at the present time of a heat wave, stories, such as frying eggs on pavements, often abound!

However, it has just been reported that Cristiano Ronaldo, the 37-year-old Manchester United forward and captain of the Portugal national team, has had a genital botox injection to enlarge his penis.

The treatment is designed to increase the girth of his male member by 2.5 centimetres.

In addition to lifestyle requirements to preserve his physical condition and thereby extend his playing career, such as healthy dietary regimes and strict exercise routines before and after training, as well as botox treatments to combat wrinkles, he has now turned his attention to other more intimate parts of his body.

It is remarkable how wealthy individuals, in the public eye, spend their money to preserve and enhance their attractiveness, especially for their celebrity status!
