Jimmy Kimmel Makes Fun of Tempe, a.k.a., Wiener Spray, Arizona



It looks like we're not the only ones who found the humor in a premature-ejaculation spray being named Tempe.

Late-night TV host Jimmy Kimmel, an Arizona State University dropout, had a bit on the spray on his show last night.

As we mentioned earlier this week, the U.K.'s Daily Mail reported that a the penis spray "has been judged safe and effective by the European Medicines Agency and is expected in bedroom cabinets early next year."

The name: Tempe -- short for Topical Eutectic Mixture for Premature Ejaculation.

ABC apparently doesn't like the embed feature, so you'll have to click here to see Kimmel's bit, starting at the 5:05 mark, in which he makes fun of Tempe -- now known as Wiener Spray, Arizona.
