Little blue pill

Pfizer Inc. says it will begin selling Viagra directly to patients on its website, which is good news for men who are too bashful to ask their neighborhood druggist for the impotence remedy.

Even more embarrassing would be admitting you bought counterfeit Viagra from one of the countless scammers whose email pitches land in your spam folder.

Knowing me, knowing you: A museum devoted to campy 1970s hitmakers ABBA opens today in Stockholm. It will also show off ABBA paraphernalia, including costumes the Swedish band wore at the height of its fame.

Come to think of, The Buzz can think of another thing more embarrassing than asking your druggist for Viagra: admitting you traveled 5,000 miles to gaze at a collection of white jumpsuits.

Fake bake: The Food and Drug Administration wants more stringent warnings on the cancer risk posed by indoor tanning beds.

The FDA is concerned about melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, but The Buzz suggests that the kids would be more likely to heed this warning: "Caution: This device will make you look like a baked potato by the time you're 45."
