When Henry Wolf hopped on his BMW motorcycle to take a leisurely four-hour ride, he never imagined that the ridged seat would give him an epic erection that was still going strong 20 months later. Now he’s suing BMW for lost wages, medical expenses, and mental and emotional distress. Since suffering from priapism (the medical term for a boner that just won’t quit), Wolf has been “unable to engage in sexual activity, which is causing him substantial emotional and mental anguish,” his lawyer stated in the lawsuit. No word yet from BMW, but apparently both the motorcycle and medical communities are baffled by Wolf’s condition, since motorcycle seats are much more likely to cause a very different problem: impotence. Either way, be careful out there, bikers: those seats are definitely not working in your favor. [Yahoo News]

David Beckham recently bought Victoria a vineyard in California’s Napa Valley. Apparently the two developed a passion for wine while they were in Spain (which also happens to be when Becks developed a passion for the nanny).
