Greetings fellow Bizarros:

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said a Texas company's coffee is being recalled after customers got a rise from an ingredient with a Viagra-like effect.

The announcement said Bestherbs Coffee LLC, based in Grand Prairie, is voluntarily recalling bags of java labeled "New of Kopi Jantan Tradisional Herbs Coffee" after an FDA analysis detected the presence of desmethyl carbodenafil, a chemical similar to sildenafil, the active ingredient in erectile dysfunction drug Viagra.

The FDA said the undeclared compound could interact with nitrates in some prescription drugs, lowering blood pressure to dangerous levels.

The notice said the coffee was marketed as a "male enhancement" product, but could pose risks to men with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or heart disease.

The FDA said the coffee also contained undeclared milk.

Like the jingle goes, 'The best part of waking up is the boner in your shorts.'

*---------- Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em ----------*

A man was caught on camera riding a Chicago city bus "like a boss" by climbing on top of the vehicle and smoking a cigarette. Lloyd Anthony Peters said he was near the Chicago Transit Authority bus stop at Fullerton and Sheffield when a man asked him for a cigarette. "I gave him one," Peters said. He said the man then asked if he could swipe his Ventra card to get on the bus. "I tell him I can't do that, because he told me he was going westbound, and I couldn't cross the street, because I had crutches and a cast," Peters said. "He literally just said eff it, and he climbed on top of the bus, and lit the cigarette, and just went straight down Fullerton like a boss." Peters posted a photo and a video of the unusual sight to Facebook. "He was incredibly athletic to get up there so fast and without any issues," Peters said. "I feel blown away by it, to be quite honest," he said. "I've seen some people do some crazy things. You know, you've got to do what you've got to do to get around. I understand that, but climbing on top of a bus?" CTA spokeswoman Irene Ferradaz said the agency is working with Chicago police to identify the man "and will pursue appropriate charges."


*------------ Milk, Milk, Lemonade ------------*

A mother sparked outrage after revealing that she mixed her breast milk into brownies she made for a school bake sale. The mother, who was not identified, told her Facebook followers that she could not understand why people made such a big deal with what she did. The woman wrote on Facebook: "I made brownies for my school bake sale that had breast milk in them. I didn't have time to run to the store, and didn't think it was a big deal. Some of those kids could use the nutrition to be honest." The post quickly went viral, and received hundreds of angry responses. The woman was criticized for putting other children at risk of serious infectious diseases, which could be transferred through breast milk. One woman compared this mother's actions with mixing urine in lemonade. "It's like that one time I made lemonade with my urine because I ran out of water and didn't feel like going to the store to get more." Another angry poster wrote, "I'd punch this b***h right in the throat for this s**t. I don't care if the possible harmful diseases baked out. This psycho needs to be slapped." I think that says it all.
