FI­NALLY the world of Pharmacy is in the global comedic spot­light!

A US sit­com se­ries called Vials de­buted its pi­lot episode ti­tled “Xanax” late last year and on the back of pos­i­tive re­views from the pub­lic has been ap­proved to make a few more episodes.

The show fo­cuses on the myr­iad of cus­tomers com­plaints and foibles that Phar­ma­cists in­evitably face dur­ing the week, from peo­ple not want­ing to pro­vide per­sonal info, the re­fusal to wait for scripts and mouthing off about be­ing given the generic ver­sions of medicines.

The show isn’t avail­able in Aus­tralia yet so you’ll have to wait a lit­tle bit be­fore you can laugh heartily at some­one ac­ci­den­tally wedg­ing a parac­eta­mol cap­sule up their nos­tril.

A WOULD-BE co­me­dian cer­tainly found a funny way to at­tract an au­di­ence - he robbed a Fort Laud­erdale bank and then stripped naked, run­ning down the street cast­ing bank notes in all di­rec­tions for any passers-by.

The strip show was due to the red dye cov­er­ing his clothes when the money’s ac­com­pa­ny­ing dye-pack ex­ploded.

De­spite the method in his mad­ness, the 26-year-old was found not guilty by rea­son of in­san­ity - he said a chip in his head com­pelled his be­hav­iour.
