So that new weight loss drug, which we shall code name “Todd Packer,” has hit the market. And it is selling like hotcakes in spite of the fact that there is an outside chance that it causes colon cancer, and that it definitely causes you to poop your pants.
“It’s probably a smart idea to wear dark pants, and bring a change of clothes with you to work,” the drug’s Web site says.
Yum! Another tidbit from that article: the buyers of the drug are overwhelmingly women, and they are described as “not fat.” People, you are beautiful the way you are! Don’t take the anal leakage pill!
In related news, a rival drug company has made a fake “poopy pants” commercial (which the main three networks are refusing to air). You can find out more about it here, and it’s available all over the internet.
“The ad is funny. Really funny. Most everybody laughs when they see it, except the network executives and probably alli’s distributor GlaxoSmithKline. Sure, it depicts someone soiling her pants, what we affectionately call an ‘alli accident,’ but that’s what can happen when people take alli. It says as much on the website and in the alli book. And while the networks are willing to take GSK’s money to run positive ads about alli, they seem disinclined to offer the public the other side of the story.”
Oh, by the way, the post title and code name both come from the Office episode called “The Carpet.”
