Aspirin rattle

Begone!

Aspirin is the miracle drug. Not only does it make you hurt less, it keeps diseases away. Aspirin prevents heart attacks, strokes and colon cancer and those are only the ones for which there is hard evidence. Clearly, diseases fear aspirin.

The aspirin rattle leverages that property. This bottle contains healthful aspirin but is made in the form of the scowling head of Jonas Salk, with his suit clad and somewhat-leaner-than-life body forming the handle of the rattle. Before taking your aspirin, shake the bottle menacingly! This will further disarm and dispel diseases which may have designs on your flesh.

       Maybe the rattle could be used to give others headaches so they take aspirin and incur the other benefits.
