Apollo Belvedere, the Vatican Museum

How much would a 10-year long erection cost?
$400,000, marked down from $750,000
Only you get paid! Go figure.

According to CBS News, Charles "Chick" Lennon, won more than $400,000 in a lawsuit over a penile implant that gave him a 10-year erection.

A jury awarded "Chick" $750,000. A judge cut that to $400,000.

He had the Dura-II model installed -- which consists of a series of plastic plates strung together with steel surgical wire, like a roll of wrapped coins. Springs press against the plates, creating enough surface tension to simulate an erection. The Dura-II is designed to allow impotent men to position the penis upward for sex, then lower it. But Lennon could not position his penis downward. He said he could no longer hug people, ride a bike, swim or wear bathing trunks -- although he probably wore Speedos the whole ten years just to annoy the rest of us!
