Side Effects

“Any questions, sir?” says the clerk.

“What are this medication’s side effects?” asks the customer.

“There are none.”

“None? Impressive. Three bottles, please.”

The customer pays and leaves.

Another clerk says, “You didn’t tell him it turns people into pathological liars?”

“I couldn’t,” says the clerk. “I’m taking it myself.”

This story was based on the prompts “side effects” and “pathological liar” at TypeTrigger.

Crazy For Cheeseburgers

“I’m insane,” declared Carmen.

“Oh, I don’t think so,” said her doctor bemusedly.

“I insist,” said Carmen. “I’m one-hundred percent crazy.”

“Are you hoping to get a prescription of some sort?”

“What, like a cheeseburger or something?”

“Ah, I see,” said the doctor. “You aren’t insane; you’re hungry.”

“Right. That.”
