Rage On Mint
Why do all medicine have to taste like mint? Or eucalyptus?
Is there some law ordering pill and potion makers to use only these flavours? Would the world suffer from a mint overflow if the pharmaceutical companies don’t mix all their products with mint and eucalyptus?
Why can’t we have cough syrups with chicken-curry flavour? Or aspirins with grilled lobster and garlic taste? Or broccoli with bacon and cheese-sauce stomach tablets?
We should start a lobby campaign to make the pharmaceutical companies see that the public is fed up with mint-flavoured drugs. Leave your suggestions in the comments and I’ll make sure to send a copy to Bayer, Johnson & Johnson, Roche, Pfizer and the lot.
