>From the 2014 Wayans Bros. movie, A Haunted House:

She: What did you say to me on our wedding night?
He  : "I'm sorry, honey. I've got _whiskey-dick_. I'll make it up to you in
the morning."

In the UD from 2003.

"... she has no heart. Thus, how can she see heart? She only wants money.
Indeed, when I see this white creature of vileness in my mind, it makes me
sick. Now, Bull does not have the problem that many men do, what we shall
call '_whiskey- dick_'."
All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
-Mark Twain
