    ok, so it IS pretty funny….but might be better set to music! {oh, wait…it IS set to music on the new commercial!}  what’s disturbing is trying to explain to my 10 year-old that “viva viagra!” was not made famous by an elvis movie….

    actually, i am somewhat relieved that the word “priapism” has actually made it onto the airwaves. “if you have an erection that lasts for more than 4 hours….,” although serious and certainly painful, is also difficult to explain to said offspring. unfortunately for me, i usually finish that sentence by thinking, “….hell, why would you seek medical attention? wouldn’t you want to run out and share the love?”    

    ok, enough of that. this subject matter can be really, well… hard.

 Subject: Pharmacology
     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.

sure, it would HAVE TO be a concoction!
