A! Joke!

Okayokayokay! So!

What’s the funniest cardiac medication?

Metoprolol!!!

Get it? Get it? Metopro-LOL!!!

How is metoproLOL any funnier than labetaLOL?

Uh…………..

Or atenoLOL, for that matter?

Yes, but….

CarvediLOL is also pretty funny.

But that’s not the…..

So’s esmoLOL.

Come on…….

And equally funny are acebutoLOL, betaxoLOL, bisoproLOL, nebivoLOL, carteoLOL, penbutoLOL…..

Okay, now you’re just showing off…..

……pindoLOL, levobunoLOL, nadoLOL……….

Are you quite done?

propranoLOL, sotaLOL, and timoLOL…..

::waits::

…metipranoLOL?…..

::sigh::

Fine.

What’s the funniest CLASS of cardiac medication?

……………Beta blockers!!!

That’s really not a very good joke. You have to make the leap from “beta blockers” to knowing that beta blockers as a class tend to have names that end in -lol, and then make another jump to the whole LOLcats thing….and by the time you get there, you’ve just spent way too much energy to laugh.

……Well……it’s sure not funny NOW………….

You’ve still got the muffin joke. Maybe you should stick to that one.

But that’s a timing joke! It’s just not MADE to be told in written form!

You just worked overnight again, didn’t you?

…….Kinda…………….

It’s showing. Go to bed!

::sigh:: I’ll be here all month, folks. Tip your waitresses.

  1. OK, it took until the end, but I *did* laugh… hope you get some sleep 🙂

  2. Hahaha

  3. I laughed out loud at Metoprolol. ^_^

  4. Nice to meet you. I found your articles on SFWA. I’m a pre-med and a writer myself, and anyone who’s Making This Sort Of Thing Work ™ is inherently interesting to me.

    Very belatedly, I leave my Best Worst Pun:

    Which Michaelangelo painting exhibits disulfide bonding?

    …wait for it…

    The Cysteine chapel.

    • Hah!

      Nice to meet you too, Alice! Good luck with the whole pre-med thing AND the whole writing thing! It’s a tough balance, and sometimes you have to leave the writing behind a bit, but I think it’s worth it.

      Thanks for writing!
