Are We Getting Stupider?

What's with these commercials for Ambien and Lunesta, two FDA approved sleep medications, that now warn you the drugs may cause drowsiness!? Is anyone really so stupid to think that they'll take a sleep medication and feel awake and alert?

I shake my head and wonder how humankind has managed to survive these thousands of years.

Darn, there goes my pre-bedtime joyrides in the Hummer......

Wish somebody had told my BIL that sleep medications cause drowsiness before he drove his car home from a party one night. Got pulled over for not maintaining his lane. Not a smart move, but then again he's not a smart man. He probably would have been able to avoid jail time if he had not been carrying less than an ounce of glaucoma medication in the seat beside him.

Wait a minute.....he DOESN'T HAVE GLAUCOMA!! Well, that would explain why he told the officer it wasn't his! DUHHHH.

I'm still giggling at your signature. Thanks for a great laugh!!! :-)

Maybe those warnings are meant for people like your BIL?

Seraphim9 said...

No....his type of people know better, but always think that they know so much more than anyone else that they won't be affected.

You know them....the know-it-alls, experts at everything, can't tell him nothing.

My question is, why is the only thing he DOESN'T seem to know is how to get and keep a job??? :)

Because, when you're married to a woman who thinks you've hung the moon, stars, several galaxies, the entire universe ... and then some ... and can breast-feed off her, why even bother with such tedium as "jobs."

Oh, heh heh, did I just say that?
