Why didn't I think of this?

Oh yeah...my head injury occurred after, not before.

Millions for head injury that led man to hookers

A British man who suffered a head injury at work that resulted in a loss of inhibition and led him to use prostitutes and phone sex services received about $6.2 million in damages from his former employer, according to media reports.

"Stephen Tame, 29, had been married to Sarah, 30, for eight months when he fell from a gantry while working in a cycle warehouse in January 2002. Although he recovered from the accident after two years of treatment, the injury unleashed a libido that could not be kept in check," The Guardian reports. "Judge Michael Harris, awarding 3.166m damages, said Mr. Tame had misbehaved in the presence of women, watched pornographic videos and called phone sex lines. His loss of inhibition also led to him making embarrassing remarks and interrupting conversations."

All I can say about this case is that with $6.2 mil in the bank, that he should now be able to afford hookers all the times and not have to do it on the cheap with do-it-yourself phone sex. Of course maybe a lap dance or two, just to give it a bit of variety as he recovers from the accident.

Nice going Stephen.

What argument did Stephen's attorney use to get around the fact that plenty of mentally healthy men engage in this type of behavior all the time?

Re: Why didn't I think of this?

His "embarrassing remarks and interruptions" remind me of that episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm where the chef of a new restaurant has Tourette's Syndrome. On opening night unleashes a tirade of obscenities that everyone hears and Larry tried to cover him by launching a bunch of his own. The resulting obscenity-fest is one of the funniest scenes I have ever watched on TV.

Sexual disinhibition as a medical syndrome is real but, sorry to disappoint you perverts, is usually seen in early Alzheimers and other degenerative diseases.

Commonly referred to as the "dirty old man" syndrome.

Ah yes. What I didn't realize is that a stroke could result in removal of some of these social inhibitions. That happened to an older person we know. They had to restrain him in his hospital bed following his stroke. Otherwise he would run around without his clothes. Fortunately, he recovered.

He later went on to become the 42nd president of the United States.

Zing!

Re: Why didn't I think of this?

I hope they fix Stephen Tame's inhibitions before he can run through $6.2 million in hookers and strippers. It took years of explaining to my wife that the average man really does think about sex several times a minute. She said "eeeeww, does that mean you're constantly looking at other women and thinking about having sex with them?"

Sort of. But its not exactly how you think. It's similar to you going window shopping. You see something attractive, consider briefly how it would look on you, and then look at the price tag and realize it's too expensive to consider - so you move on after a momentary fantasy.

A few minutes ago I told her the story about this guy and her reply was...

"You without any inhibitions and 6 million bucks? Dude, if that happened to you we'd be flat broke in about 48 hours, you would be dead in 72 hours, and I'd be interviewing defense attorneys over a payphone from the jail."

Edited to remove the evidence that I didn't know which president was the 42nd.

Don't worry, dude, you're on a wicked roll today. This is the second time I'm wiping coffee off my monitor...

I hope you're recording some of these punchlines for open-mike night! Can you come up with three minutes of standup material on "Why police officers take early retirement?"
