A lighter perspective on Age

Too much introverted thinking can be bad for you, so here is something to lighten up your day.

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 call
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 t o
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.

Did you also know that 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.

I do hope that last bit about expenditure on Alzheimer's isnt true.

I'm still giggling about the viagra and breast implants :0) but I suspect sadly that the last bit is true.
