Side Effects Drug

Doesn't actually treat anything except curiosity and perhaps boredom.

Most drugs claim to treat some malady and many have side effects. We at RockCo are creating a drug that treats nothing in particular, save boredom, solely to create side effects to interest and delight thrill-seekers everywhere. Every few months the formulation is adjusted lest our audience become bored and take up a less interesting hobby*. Have a hankering for a world-class erection while your hair turns green? Tourettes with red sweat? Compulsions to eat Oreos and draw pictures on your boss' car? The list of possible side effects is limitless.

*self flagellation, for instance

       Haven't you just reinvented recreational drugs?

       I can't tell if this idea is a satirical reference to (current event which must not be named) but count me in! Maybe I'll get superpowers.

       Ask your doctor if Placebo is right for you!

       When I walk past a pharmacy I start scratching and coughing - I'm the side effects poster boy. (-)

       What pertinax said so eloquently.

       //Every few months the formulation is adjusted// - there’s no need to do this; most of the side effects can be created by the power of suggestion and so all you need to do is to change the printing on the box
