The pharmacist walks into the store to find a guy leaning against the wall in obvious discomfort. He asks the clerk,
“What’s with that guy over there by the wall?”
The clerk replied, “Well he came in here this morning to get something for his cough. I couldn’t find any cough syrup, so I gave him a bottle of laxative.”
The pharmacist yelled, “You can’t treat a cough with a laxative.”
The clerk responds, “Of course you can! Look at him. He’s afraid to cough.”
Chuck, I am grinning, spluttering and coughing away at this one!
