Hahaha those reps sur r smart.

Celeste said...

Sounds like an interesting side effect.

Doris said...

And when they feel strong, they feel less weak, but on the other hand, when the are weak, they don't feel as strong...

Or something...

Didn't we cover this earlier?

>:p

Grumpy, M.D. said...

Doris- Yes, but apparently redundancy and stupidity never go out of style.

terri c said...

Is this "your favorite" drug rep? Oh--my wv is "emiste" which sounds like it could be a New Drug!

Gen said...

He's giving you the hard sell.

Grumpy, M.D. said...

Terri- no, this was Rikki Phoneysmile, my most hated rep. The same one who did this:

shut up and hand over the chicken.

Grumpy, M.D. said...

Good Dr. Laura- Yes. That's the key to surviving these. Smile, nod, and dont' ask questions.

In other news, when you get into the shower, you get more wet.

The Mother said...

Really? Do they have any data to back that up?

King J's Queen said...

Astonishing! I would never have expected such stunning results.

Of course, whether or not the patient hurts less or just hurts differently is largely dependent upon the cost of the medication... :-)

Dr. Dad said...

You can't look at "this data" because data are pleural. Drives me crazy when I hear that.

I bet there was a nice looking color chart demonstrating the amazing correlation between pain relief and relief of pain. Some pharmaceutical genius probably got paid the big bucks making the brochure.

So her face is next to the word "astute" in the dictionary?

Smacking head, "Duh!"

Sounds like one of those unpredictable side-effects to me.

Drug literature:
Pain - Bad
Our Drug - Make Bad Go Away.

The Tertive Man said...

"But if you turn the paper upside down, then the pain level increases. And if you fold it like this, then you get a little paper hat."

Beloved Parrot said...

Now I know you're making this stuff up! Everyone knows that our trusted drug companies would never hire stupid people.

Right?

Right????
