Jonny went out to the Dunes and fell asleep for a couple of hours and got horribly sunburned. He went back to his hotel, but he was in such pain his wife took him to the emergency department in Corralejo.

After a quick examination he was put in an ambulance and taken to the Hospital in Puerto del Rosario where he was diagnosed with 2nd degree burns over a large part of his body.

He was in excruciating pain and his skin was heavily blistered. He was put on Saline and Electrolytic drips, powerful pain killers, given a sedative and a Viagra pill every 4 hours.

The nurse, who was a little astounded asked, “What good will the Viagra do for him Doctor?

The doctor replied, “It won’t do a damn thing for his condition nurse…….. But it will keep the sheets off his legs”

But seriously ….. Be careful.
