Please listen to Dyane & Lucy explain this new contest. All will make sense to you shortly!
After you watch me & Lucy, please check out the Silicon Valley clip below; the scenes made me ponder how marketing departments truly come up with such ridiculous med names. (TW for salty language and psilocybin use.)
LUCY’S MEDICATION NAME SUGGESTIONS
The following medications are not yet available to the public and are currently undergoing extensive clinical trials
This revolutionary 3-in-1 medication is an antipsychotic, mood stabilizer and benzodiazepine. To date the only drawback is one side effect: the consumer grows an additional toe and/or finger; the formula team is currently working on this issue to eradicate the digits.
This powerful antipsychotic has a threefold benefit; it not only acts as a traditional antipsychotic; Synapislaphappyquel™ increases the consumer’s intelligence by one-tenth of the previous quotient, and it specifically decreases road rage.
An element, Cf, this medication’s classification is Rare Earth – watch out lithium, Californium™ is the groovy, hot, new mood stabilizer!
This benzodiazepine will relax any muscle in the body 100 times faster and stronger than diazepam’s effect, especially in one’s nether regions.
A mood elevator also helpful for PTSD, the medication can also be used to increase the amount of eggs laid by chickens two thousand percent.
A mild antidepressant targeted for parents of young children; the marketing team is designing a label geared for those wary of pharmaceuticals. Prototypes include this image:
This antidepressant is even more effective than ketamine; it’s to be injected into one’s ear canal and works within two seconds.
