Big Thoughts About Little Drawings: Take a Pill

Doesn't it seem that someone should market an all-purpose sugar pill?
Or maybe they do already, and we just don't know if it's the one that supposedly causes dry mouth or nausea or um... embarrassing sexual side effects...
Maybe they could call it the "Take a Pill Pill," and the tagline could be "For when you just feel like you ought to be taking something."
I also find it interesting that in those drug ads on TV, they always juxtapose the disturbing list of side effects with shots of happy people running in a field, or holding hands on the beach, or whatever. They know the images will supercede the words in your TV-viewing brain. But if you sit back and watch, it's pretty funny - like they're happy about bowel dysfunction or erections that last more than 4 hours.
La la la! Come run in the field anyway! Cue music.
