Drug Industry to Use New Terminology

In pharmacology, all drugs have two names - a trade name and a generic

Aleve is known as naproxen, and Advil is ibuprofen.

The industry has been looking for a generic name to classify Viagra
and equivalent drugs. After consideration by a team of government
experts, it recently announced the generic name of mycoxafloppin.

Also considered were mycoxafailin, mydixadrupin, mydixarizin,
mydixadud, dixafix, and of course ibepokin.

Pfizer Inc. recently indicated that Viagra will soon be available in
liquid form and be marketed by Pepsi Cola as a power beverage suitable
for use as a mixer.

Pepsi's ad campaign claims it will now be possible for a guy to

this a soft drink. This additive gives new meaning to the names of
cocktails, highballs and just a good old-fashioned stiff drink. Pepsi
will market the new concoction by the name of Mount & Do
