Stomach Settlers

Pioneer shaped antacid tablets.
  [vote for,

New from the folks that brought you Experi-mints and Predica-mints it's Stomach Settlers.These tasty new antacid tablets come in a tin shaped just like a conestoga wagon! Tucked inside are chewable fast-acting expansionist folk in a variety of minty flavors. A new frontier in acid indigestion relief. Mmmm chalky!

       Will these tablets push West?

       Um, South.

       Different "strengths" of this could be sold with a naming scheme of different Nationalities...correlating to how aggressive that country has been through history in it's settling. (Dutch, English, Spanish etc.)   

       Although, I do not know enough history to know if there is any significant difference in how different countries "settled".

       I've had vitamins shaped like rockets and astronauts. Like the teddy bear kind, they're marketed to parents that feel the shape will increase acceptance from the children. Tasted awful though.   

       The original settlers idea is just dead on with all its glorious corniness, I think; there's already enough alien-shaped stuff out there. Although, if it could make you glow in the dark .. hm.

       UltimaTUMS. Your heartburn stops or else..

       I think if you made them glow-in-the-dark you might have more problems than simple indigestion, jutta. Like radiation poisoning, possibly, since many glow-in-the-dark materials do have mildly radioactive components.

       Everybody knows radiation doesn't hurt you. It gives you superpowers like x-ray vision and invisibility.

       Bad idea. Not all settlers kept moving until they reached the Pacific Ocean; many settled down where the last axle broke. The idea of little settlers stopping off around my pancreas and setting up permanent camp is too much to face in the morning when it's time to take my vitamins.

       How about pills shaped like the active molecules that are contained in them? Fun way to learn chemistry......

       This is a nice idea.

       I suffer from 'heartburn', and to be honest I don't care what the tablets look like as long as they ease indigestion, but I also really like this idea, If it read " It will be gone soon" on the tablet or "I know it's bad, but in a few minutes you'll feel much better" that would be a real bonus, along with the "guess which pioneer I am", my indigestion would be gone in no time.

       Yes. This is a good thing.

       And one of my very favorite ideas on this site.
