Ah, winter. How we love you. And your plagues.
So, here on the outskirts of The City of Windsor, the Zombie Plague has become the Zombie Throat Infection Immune to Antibiotics, which has in turn bred the Zombie Ulcers of the Throat and Mouth. It's like Shaun of the Dead around here. Only without the laughter.
Luckily, this means I get to partake of a bucketful of medication. But the medication amused me, and got me thinking about the above ludicrosity of words. I think these pharmaceutical companies really have to hire me. They need an image boost, and their current copy writers just aren't getting the job done.
Example of note: one of my medications is contained in "a pleasantly flavoured aqueous vehicle". Mmmmmmmm. Yum. I mean, man, I'm thirsty. I could really use a pleasantly flavoured aqueous vehicle right now.
Yes, Apo-Benzydamine, I'm looking at you. And you call yourself pleasant. Where you from? Apotex Inc.? Geez, I'm salivating already. Line that stuff up. Time to party.
I mean... aqueous vehicle? Is it just me or does that sound like some sort of new underwater tank designed for amphibious landings?
So, fellow sophisticates, have you stumbled on any ludicrous uses of words recently?
