List of side effects

I was once given a prescription for some heavy duty pain-killers.

After two nosebleeds in two days I decided to look at the leaflet that came with the pain-killers.

The list of possible side effects ran to about 3 foot of very small text. It was in alphabetical order.

Naturally I scanned down to side effects beginning with "N" (for Nosebleeds).

Sure enough "Nosebleeds" was listed, fourth one down on the list of side effects beginning with "N".

It was the first three side effects beginning with "N" that caught my attention though.

These were the first four entries beginning with "N":

No Blood Pressure.

No Breathing.

No Pulse.


I'm pretty sure the first three should have been listed under "D". As in "Dead".

I once saw a sign that said "Mersey Docks and Harbour Board".

Some wag had added "and little lambs eat ivy".

It made me laugh - but then again I am easily pleased.
