Here's a new piece I think someone should add:

In Team Fortress 2, the Medic has his Medigun, capable of instantaneously healing a truckload of injuries when used on teammates. It has the bizarre side effect of... Instantaneously healing a truckload of injuries. What the gun's intended effect might be is anybody's guess.

Not sure why this page is locked, but could someone with appropriate access please pothole the citation of Jeff Foxworthy? Thanks!

Could someone link the only instance of the word "often" to be found in the article (specifically, in the phrase "often in the mouth") to Fridge Horror? The topic seems to be locked. Thanks.

The entry

Pure Drivel by Steve Martin contains an essay entitled "Side Effects," which lists the side effects for a medication that relieves joint pain. The side effects start with joint pain and go on for about ten pages, with this editor's favorite being "May cause stigmata in Mexicans." "May cause compulsion to stand up in Catholic Mass and yell "I'm gonna whup ya wit' da ugly stick!"

should be changed to

A recent series of American billboards for a product called "Reachemol," a drug with humorously ridiculous signs with people talking about how popular they've gotten after taking the drug/asking questions that imply an unsocial life, would be an example; also, side effects apparently include: "Narcissism, Justin Bieber, Pregnancy, High blood pressure, cholesterol and self-esteem, Blindness associated with Paparazzi attacks, and Sexual Exhaustion." Official site here: http://www.reachemol.com/ (It should be easy to find images of the signs on the site)

BTW, the signs are advertising the advertising company that makes them.

The Teen Titans reference in this article needs to be changed from the Main namespace to Western Animation.

I hate to beat a dead horse, but the page image is still incorrectly linked. That picture is NOT from a Jib Jab video. It is from a music video by The Austin Lounge Lizards, entitled "The Drugs I Need."

Here's a youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYodDH4qZQo

There is absolutely nothing wrong with vaginal ejaculation. In fact, it's awesome in every way.

I did a little reading, and I don't think the page image is from Jib Jab at all. The page image comes from a music video for the song "The Drugs I Need" by The Austin Lounge Lizards, which was made for the Consumers Union by a company called The Animation Farm, according to The Other Wiki. Also, the video itself isn't on Jib Jab's page, even though the song came out in 2006, which is after a lot of there other videos like "This Land," so I can't think of a reason why they would not have it there if they had made it. I think the page image link needs to be updated to reflect this. Here's a link: http://cu.convio.net/site/PageServer?pagename=Rx_song_download

might i humbly suggest that web/paperback- comic "BOB The Angry Flower" - did a fine rendition of this trope (and endless others)- and if the author is tickled, he might merrily agree to using this episode as the page illustration - hint-hint... (ah, whatever, i should just write him back again, and mention it myself, i guess):

Likewise, there should also be a link to The Austin Lounge Lizards, who wrote the song for that video.

Nyarg. I can't edit it so I can't fix the "side-affect" or the comma that should be a semicolon in the example below it. Again, nyarg.

"In Europe direct advertising to the public is illegal, drugs companies can advertise to doctors, but not to the public on TV."

The laws on this matter differ per European country. In the Netherlands for example drug advertisement on TV is perfectly legal as long as there is a disclaimer saying that people should read the prescribing information that comes with the drug before using it.

Therefore, shouldn't this be changed to "In most European countries..." or "In the UK.." or something like that?

The whole bit about laws outside the US was unnecessary. Gone now.

Will someone with appropriate authority please change "**Even better: Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) is the sole active ingredient in most over-the-counter sleep aids. Put that in your pipe and...er, on second thought, better not." to "**Even better: Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) is the sole active ingredient in most over-the-counter sleep aids. Put that in your pipe and...er, on second thought, better not."? It seems to be referring to the recreational use of the chemical, and, well. -shudder-

Eep. Didn't expect the wikimarkup to work here. I was suggesting that "Better not." be potholed to High Octane Nightmare Fuel. Because it is. In the most literal sense possible.
