Are We Boneheads? 4

Well, yeah, I guess some us are. The Republican Party still exists. But that’s beside the point.

Anyway, I’m watching television (almost always a mistake) and an AmbienCR ad comes on.

It shows someone sleeping while a big AmbienCR pill floats in the air above her.

Then the the top layer of the pill dissolves into starlike particles that cascade over the the sleeping person, presumably knocking her unconscious so she sleeps longer.

And the word “Animation” appears on the screen.

What kind of bozo wouldn’t realize this was animated?

No, never mind, I don’t want to know.

I’m already cynical enough.

    The same kind of bonehead who has to be warned that one of the possible side effects of a sleeping pill is drowsiness.

    Or, with that stuff, eating or driving, while still asleep & never remembering “the event”, as they call it.

    I will admit I took it, the regular version, for quite awhile, because I couldn’t sleep. I’ve now found that 2 Excedrin PM work better for me. No hangover.

    Opie–I needed a laugh after the day I had today.

    I have actually seen signs on gas pumps saying, “Don’t use cell phones,” even though the cell-phones-cause-explosions myth is a bunch of ca-ca.

    Karen, er, “the event”?

    Walking, or eating in a person’s sleep, while taking the Ambien CR.
