3. Stuff with the company logos can be fun
I worked in a health department, and any product that had "Viagra" prominently featured disappeared fast - pens, keychains, coffee cups, etc. So did all those baseball caps with "Prozac" written on the brim.

Can I have the "Oxycontin" tot bag? Pretty please?

4. What kind of sick person gives Oxycontin to tots?
And why, oh why, can I never resist the temptation to point out others' typos?

9. Rush Limbaugh?
Wait, he's the anti-Santa. He'd take the Oxycontin from the tots. Would that not make him a hero?

16. You don't need drugs to kill pain
Go running naked in the snow. Pretty soon you'll forget all about whatever ails you.

I speak from experience.
