Reparem que não estou me referindo a Tylenol, Advil ou coisinhas mais básicas, esta galera ai de cima é harcore. Tem remédio para depressão, artrite reumatóide, tem até remédio para parar de fumar. Confesso que quando vi o tal coemrcial, que prometia ser a oitava maravilha, quase liguei pra mimha mãe, que há séculos tenta se livrar do vício sem sucesso. Mas quando já ia pegar o telefone, animada com tantas boas-novas, ouvi um aviso no final do filme. O narrador lia rápido o script abaixo:

Claro que depois de ouvir tantos possíveis efeitos colaterais, desisti da minha ideia de ligar para minha mãe. Afinal, antes fumante do que paranoica, antes viva fumante do que morta!

Gente, este povo não tem mesmo medo de karma!
