The pharmacist walks into his store to find a guy leaning heavily against a wall. He asks the clerk, “What’s with that guy over there by the wall?”

   The clerk responds: “Well, he came in here this morning to get something for his cough. I couldn’t find the cough syrup, so I have him an entire bottle of laxative.”

   The pharmacist yells: “You idiot, you can’t treat a cough with a laxative!”

   The clerk responds, “Of course you can! Look at him he’s afraid to cough.”
