I love explanations
In Pharmacology, all drugs have two names, a trade name and generic name. For example, the trade name of Tylenol also has a generic name of Acetaminophen. Aleve is also called Naproxen. Amoxil is also call Amoxicillin and Advil is also called Ibuprofen.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

Pfizer Corp. announced today that Viagra will soon be available in liquid form, and will be marketed by Pepsi Cola as a power beverage suitable for use as a mixer. It will now be possible for a man to literally pour himself a stiff one. Obviously we can no longer call this a soft drink, and it gives new meaning to the names of "cocktails", "highballs" and just a good old-fashioned "stiff drink". Pepsi will market the new concoction by the name of: MOUNT & DO.

Thought for the day: There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's res earch. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.

And on a sad note: two of my perky baby bunnies died. I'm not quite sure why, since they were just fine this morning. I'm really hoping that their mother is not the road-kill pancake lying in the road out front. I have a horrible feeling that she is. I'm wondering if I should bring the remaining two to the emergency vet for him to bring to a wildlife rescue...

    I vote for the emergency vet/wildlife management folks; they have the expertise and time for hand-feeding and caring for the little ones. Good luck with them, bunny whisperer.

    Immediately take the bunnies to a wildlife rescue place or even to a vet. I used to volunteer at a rescue center and many baby bunnies would come in and we would have to feed them with a bottle. Their moms get killed by cars or wild animals and the bunnies need the mamas to lay on them and keep them warm and they need milk or they will die. The good thing is that if they save the babies they will bring them back to your yard as healthy teens. At least where I worked we released them at the same place where they were found so they could find their relatives again.

    Awww! That's so sad. I oohed and aahed over that last post for 10 minutes. Have you checked yet to see if that was "mommy bunny".
    Can you bottle feed them so that they won't starve? Poor babies.

    Well guys - thanks for all the advice.

    But the vets here won't take them... and we don't have a "Wildlife Rescue" here. I've called and checked all over. I tried to give the last remaining bunny (the other one has died) some powdered milk, but he won't take it.

    i feel so completely helpless.

    Hope this isnt coming too late. Try kitten milk replacement. You can get it at pet stores and give from a teeny bottle. Keep the bunny in the house and keep the bunny very very warm. If it is too late it could be they caught a wild bunny virus or were just too young to be away from the mama. Ohhh. This is so sad. Im so sorry.
