A pant-hoot of appreciation goes out to United Kingdom bonobo, grimupnorth, for passing this along.

Adam Kay is a junior doctor from the UK who passes his limited spare time by writing songs, including one about a new wonder-drug called Paracetamoxyfrusebendroneomycin.
He’s built up a cult following, and he’s currently selling out at the Edinburgh festival.
There are some clips from the songs on this site:
The Friday Project (“Paracetamoxyfrusebendroneomycin” contained therein – Doc Bushwell)
He gives all proceeds from his album sales to a cancer charity.
See what you think.

Adam Kay has a future in direct-to-consumer pharma advertising. Thanks, grim. I owe you a grooming session.

  1. I’ve had this similarly-minded limerick around for ages:
    A Chemical Limerick:
    A mosquito cried out in pain:
    “A chemist has poisoned my brain!”
    The cause of his sorrow
    was para-dichloro
    — Dr. D. D. Perrin

  2. Anybody know if this stuff kills those little yellow guy-thingies living underneath toenails?

  3. The limerick reminds me of a Haiku I wrote for my freshman electrical circuits class (not that any of them ever know what Haiku is, but hey…)
    Kirchoff’s Voltage Law
    What could be more important?
    I’m thinking Ohm’s Law
    As you can guess, I’m fond of extremely narrow focus jokes and the like.

  4. Jim & Luke, I never can get enough sci-nerd humor. Bill, one can only hope that this wonder drug would wipe out the creative genius behind those icky yellow nail fungus critters.
