Does this commercial make anyone else laugh?
 
There's a commercial on now for a new medical pill. It's called Aciphex. They talk a lot about Aciphex, and then they talk about the side effects and other features of Aciphex.

Aciphex. Say it fast. How did that name get through the focus groups? It sounds more like a side effect than a treatment.

Did they hire Corona Research to do the market research or something?

Seriously, think about it. Throughout a ten-year cycle of development and testing, no one noticed that name?

Pharmacist: May I help you?

Customer: Do you have Aciphex?

Pharmacist: Only after I eat Mexican.




Doctor: I think you need some Aciphex.

Patient: But I have a tattoo there already.

Sometimes you are one strange dude Rain Man.

Announcer: The side effects of Aciphex may include flatulence, diarrhea, or other aciphex.

On a more serious note, WTF is with us that we think we require a pill for every damned thing in the world? How many friggin' drugs do you people take?

So I take it that the "A" is short?...Ass-effects...because when I read it the first 20 times I gave it a long "A".... and Ace-effects meant nothing to me.

An initial pronounciation key may have saved the humor for me.

I dunno. On the commercial, it sounds to me like they're pronouncing it with a short a. Maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part, though.

I heard of a guy with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and the incredible urge to blow up tunnels.
