New Names for the Little Blue PillFeb 05, 2014
This little satire is by “anonymous “and was freely circulating on the internet a few years ago. It’s better than almost anything I’ve seen at The Onion and it cracks me up every time. To wit:
All drugs have two names, a trade name and generic name. Example, the trade name is Tylenol and it’s generic name is Acetaminophen. Aleve is also called Naproxen. Amoxil is also called Amoxicillin, and Advil is Ibuprofen.
The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra.
After careful consideration by a team of government experts, FDA recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin.
Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.
