Differin and unflavored Sprite

Filed under: General — codeman38 @ 12:38 pm

I just saw an advertisement for some new acne medication called Differin. Is it just me, or are the pharmaceutical companies really starting to run out of decent-sounding names for their products? I mean, “Differin”…whoever came up with that name had to have been greatly inspired by Saturday Night Live parody commercials and the like.

And on a totally unrelated topic, I absolutely hate it when the Coca-Cola taps in the dining hall run out of flavoring syrup. Not so bad with Coke itself– you can at least tell when it’s becoming diluted– but it’s a rather rude awakening when you’ve gone to get Sprite and end up discovering, only after you’ve taken a sip, that it’s pure, unflavored carbonated water. Blech.

  2. Yeah, Mr. Beater, we have heard of proper grammar; this is the same site hosting the Proofreader’s Hall of Shame, after all. We’ve also heard of using a dictionary, but that’s beside the point. Perhaps you’re just not all that well-read?

    Oh, and speaking of proper grammar, you could use a bit of it yourself. “why does this site even exists”? That should be “exist”, bud…and you need some punctuation after it.

    To put it in terms you might understand: “owned.” :-p
