In Pharmacology, all drugs have two names

  1. :~)

    In Pharmacology, all drugs have two names, a trade name and generic name. For example, the trade name of Tylenol also has a generic name of Acetaminophen. Aleve is also called Naproxen. Amoxil is also called Amoxicillin and Advil is also called Ibuprofen.

    The FDA has been looking for a 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 Pepsi Cola 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.

    If you don't send this to five old friends right away there will be five fewer people laughing in the world.

  3. Thanks MtnManNH . :thumbsup:. Thought the same about this one,

    it's really hard to find stuff like this. I'm so tired of the old

    Reader's Digest style stuff that you see everywhere on the Boards.

  4. Thanks a lot! Now, every time I see a bottle of Mountain Dew I'll bust out laughing. Then I'll either have to explain myself, or simply sneak off to finish laughing alone.

    That whole thing is flat out hilarious! :banana: :laughabove: :laughabove: :animlol: :rofl:
  5. I think this is the best part of the whole thing, mostly cause it isn't a joke. But still rather amusing.
