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.
