Friday Funny: Industrialized Medicine Magazine

From 2001 to 2012 I edited and wrote (with help) the Placebo Journal.  It was the only medical journal that made you laugh…..on purpose.  There has not been a hardcopy, humorous medical magazine that has come out since.  I am proud to say that we were the last and I think, best.   On Fridays, I occasionally dip into the archives and put out an image from one of our parodies.  I love this one because it was way ahead of its time.  Don’t forget to read the fine print.  And feel free to share.  I am not selling anything so there is no promotion going on here.  It’s just to make you smile on a Friday.

    I laughed…a grim kind of laugh, but a laugh none the less! 🙂

    Set this as my computer wallpaper!
