Thursday Special ~ The Pharmacist

A man walks into a pharmacy and asks for a pack of condoms. As
soon as he has paid for them, he starts laughing and walks out.

The next day, the same performance, with the man walking out
laughing fit to bust. The pharmacist thinks this odd and asks
his assistant that, if the man returns, to follow him.

Sure enough, he comes into the store the next day, repeating
his actions once more. The assistant duly follows.

Half an hour later, he returns.

“So did you follow him?”

“I did.”

“And…where did he go?”
“Over to your house!”




I cannot remember which of you Toyboys sent me this one?

    Speaking of condoms, do you notice the way men ask for them anymore? They used to say,” I’ll take a pack of Marlboros and a ,er um er um, “Pack of trojans.”

    Now they march in and shout,”Give me a six pack of Trojans for tonight, and, er um er um, a pack of Marlboros.”

    Tilly – Borrow away. All of these thursday stories are sent to me by friends, I suppose there is no original story they are all updated versions of the old ones.

    Nick – Maybe his name was Ratner!

    Mayo – Are you sure it was Milk you were delivering? 😉

    Nancy – I thought a Trojan was a nasty thing that happened to computers. Can you buy them in the pharmacy?

    You and Nancy just gave me a new business idea. I going to have big “latex bags” made to fit over computers to prevent viruses. I’m looking for investors. Call my people to get details to send your money.

    When I was young, even to say “A pack of Trojans” was impossible. The barber would ask if you “wanted something for the weekend, sir” and you would utter some sort of euphemism that meant er yes, some condoms would be appropriate. Then they’d be hastily wrapped in a brown paper bag.

    This is a true story mined from my school days. I had a friend who was just discovering activities – to the envy of the rest of us – and about three of us went to the pharmacy so he could purchase some condoms. When my friend asked for a pack of condoms, the pharmacist said, “3 or 12?” Without blinking, my friend replied, “Don’t you have any sizes in between?”

    The pharmacist was far less amused than we were.

    Mayo – I would love to invest, but my widow’s mite would not go very far. I suggest you try Rummy or Conrad!

    Nick – Thankfully the barber only asked me for money. What do you mean “What for”? To pay for my younger brother’s haircuts, what else? 😆

    Tee O – I bet the pharmacist had a good laugh when you all left the shop!

  7. Conrad

    Mayo, GM makes a good suggestion, but … you need to narrow the selection just a bit further. Just try Ramana. The man is known for his generosity in these types of surefire ventures!

    Another possibility might be Tee O. Who knows what a size 12 might fit? 🙄

    WWW – We need to call on Tee O for an answer to that question! 😆

    Ramana – Thank you for the award I accept and will deal with it during the coming week.

    Grannymar and Wise One – I don’t feel qualified to answer that one! I can’t give a nutritional breakdown, either.

    Kind of gives me a marketing idea, though. Wonder if anyone has ever marketed “Condom-mints” to the public before?

  11. Grannymar Post author

    Tee 0 – I can see you and Mayo going into Partnership with all these wonderful marketing ideas! I am sure Ramana would be willing to back you, he is sure to come up with some ideas of his own too.

  12. Mayo

    How about reuseable Condoms. It would save a lot of money (when I was a kid, I budgeted $5 a week) and a lot of embarrassment for kids asking for them at the pharmacy.
    I think my santitizer I use for my wine equipment would work. I use it to santitize my substrate for my mushrooms.

    Good one from from The Old Fossil.

    There was also the story of the fella who walked in to the chemists and whispered in desparation and embarrassment to the woman behind the counter: “I’ve had this raging erection for three days now and it won’t subside no matter what. Please – what can you give me for it.”
    “Hold on,” said she. “I’ll consult my colleague.”
    She ducked into the storeroom from where furious whispering could be heard, until the pharmacist emerged with her female assistant.
    “Right Sir, we’ve never encountered anything like this before, but we’ve had a think, and the best we can offer you is £5,000 and the keys to the shop.”
