There’s a hilarious* poster hanging over the register in the pharmacy at the hospital. “Is It Medicine, Or Is It Candy?” it asks, with pictures of various pills next to their doppelgangers: M&M, or ibuprofen? Good-n-Plenty, or Vicodin? Ju-ju Fruits, or Grandma’s enema? Klonopin wafer, or the Eucharistic Body of Christ?

I note the various similarities as I stand in line, waiting to pay for my delicious Pepto Bismol/liquid bubblegum. Other patrons are oblivious to the comedic genius of the poster.

Somehow, though, I don’t think “both” is the appropriate answer to the poster’s impromptu quiz.
