A dire warning

Not to be pessimistic or anything, but life basically consists of us making a big honkin' bonerrific heapin' heap of mistakes.  Take mine this morning.  I woke up with a bad headache, and decided - call it the folly of youth - to take headache medicine.

Now I had actually had this headache the night before, too, which meant I had already taken two pills in the last 24 hours.  Turns out that more than two aspirin tablets in a 24-hour period equals SERIOUSLY BAD JUJU, as evidenced by the following verbatim warning on the bottle:

"WARNING WARNING WARNING!!! Take more than 2 tablets in 24-hours and PERISH OF LIVER FAILURE OF THE LIVER, YOU FESTERING LITTLE WAD OF CAT-BOX DEPOSIT! Oh, wait, BWA HA HA, TOOOO LATE, because you ALREADY TOOK THE EXTRA PILLS!!!! DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE!!!! Ask a doctor if side effects occur."

Yes, well, I certainly learned MY lesson for the day, didn't I? Meanwhile, I'm spreading the word, so that those of you who can still be saved will know the dangers of ingesting medicine in order to feel better.  To think that this kind of thing can happen in America.

For those of you who work visually, here's a handy-dandy ...


... if you take more than 2 aspirin tablets in 24 hours, you fool:

After 3 pills:
4 pills:

5 pills:

6 pills:

Just my little public service announcement for the day.  I consider it giving back to the community.  Happy new year.
