A Present From Your Dog

I must be allergic to your Xanax.

Every time I take it,

I break out in handcuffs! "

What's in a Name? A by Any Other Name Wouldst Smell as Sweet...

In Pharmacology (and Marketing!), all drugs have two names, a brand name and a generic name. For example, the brand name Tylenol has the generic name of Acetaminophen. Aleve is also known as Naproxen. Advil is generically known as Ibuprofen.

The FDA has been looking for a new generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

Pfizer Corp. announced today that Viagra will soon be available in liquid form, and will be marketed by the Pepsi Cola company as a power beverage suitable for use as a mixer.

It will now be possible for a man to literally pour himself a stiff one! Obviously we can no longer call this a soft drink, and it gives new meaning to the names of "cocktails", "highballs" and just a good old-fashioned "stiff drink".

Pepsi will market the new concoction by the name of MOUNT & DO.

Thought for the day:

There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.

(Thanks Jackie!)

Sailing? I Dunno...Looks Like There May Be a Front Moving in...

They say, "it's not the heat, it's the humidity," but I'm pretty sure the lightning will kill you quicker.

This is not the usual background for a photo of the Santa Cruz, California harbor lighthouse...Remains of a tropical hurricane made it this far north from Central America, and damn, but it is as hot and muggy as the Midwest summers people move here to avoid.
