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.”
