    It’s heaven. Even the side effects are beneficial and desired.

    On Earth side effects from medication can include:
    Abdominal pain, cramping
    Bleeding readily without clotting
    Blistered, swollen lips; burning tongue, inflamed mouth
    Blood in urine
    Chest pains

    He is in Heaven so he gets Super Strength and X-Ray Vision.

    I thought the medication killed him.

  4. David N Apr 21st 2010 at 01:25 am 4

    Rats, I’ll bet it’s not on my mail order drug formulary …

  5. Charlene Apr 21st 2010 at 01:30 am 5

    If it’s heaven, why is there still TV?

  6. Jeff S. Apr 21st 2010 at 01:41 am 6

    Marshal, you forgot explosive diarrhea.

    Charlene, it’s nor Earthly TV… it’s Heavenly TV. No infomercials, for one. Probably lots of Highway to Heaven reruns as well.

    Hell, ironically, has nothing but Touched by An Angel reruns.

    I thought it was that medications started having really good side-effects …but only _after_ he died. Too late for you, Mr. Dead Guy!

    But Arthur’s version makes more sense: in Heaven, the side-effects of medicine turn you into Superman. Either way, it’s not funny.

    This reminds me of the saying that there are no side-effects, only effects. Some are desirable some are not. The ones we don’t want are called side-effects.

    In this case, what on earth (or rather, in heaven) could be the wanted effect of this medicine?

    If it is heaven why is this guy watching TV instead of cavorting with virgins

    OOPS wrong religion

  11. Pete Apr 21st 2010 at 08:58 am 11

    Of course there’s TV in heaven. But there’s no commercials.

  12. Nicole Apr 21st 2010 at 09:08 am 12

    Pete #10 … but but he is watching a commercial … I am so confused

  13. Nicole Apr 21st 2010 at 09:09 am 13

    In heaven will LOST make sense ????

  14. Ben Carlsen Apr 21st 2010 at 09:22 am 14

    Nicole : No, but you will be in such a state of bliss that you won’t really care anymore.

  15. Nicole Apr 21st 2010 at 10:21 am 15

    Ben #13

    Actually I don’t care now :-)

  16. FeelinOld Apr 21st 2010 at 10:52 am 16

    I’m kind of split between Tulia’s and Arthur’s description, either way does this explain Superman?

    Marshal: you missed an important one: Death
    I have actually seen one drug (can’t remember what it was at the moment) that had ‘Death’ listed as one of the rare side effects. That’s on heck of a ’side’ effect…

    Nicole #12: Lost making sense; That IS expecting miracles…

  17. marie Apr 21st 2010 at 11:17 am 17

    I understand LOST perfectly. What’s your problem?


  18. Ray Brady Apr 21st 2010 at 12:23 pm 18

    If it’s heaven, why would there be anything BUT TV?

    And sammiches…

  19. Lgchrist Apr 21st 2010 at 01:30 pm 19

    If it’s heaven why is there medication?

  20. paperboy Apr 21st 2010 at 03:56 pm 20

    That’s why everyone’s happy.

    now playing: Das Himmlische Leben.

    Kein’ Musik ist ja nicht auf Erden,
    Die unsrer verglichen kann werden.
    Elftausend Jungfrauen
    Zu tanzen sich trauen.
    Sanct Ursula selbst dazu lacht.
    Kein’ Musik ist ja nicht auf Erden,
    Die unsrer verglichen kann werden.
    Cäcilia mit ihren Verwandten
    Sind treffliche Hofmusikanten!
    Die englischen Stimmen
    Ermuntern die Sinnen,
    Daß alles für Freuden erwacht.

    We enjoy heavenly pleasures
    and therefore avoid earthly ones.
    No worldly tumult
    is to be heard in heaven.
    All live in greatest peace.
    We lead angelic lives,
    yet have a merry time of it besides.
    We dance and we spring,
    We skip and we sing.
    Saint Peter in heaven looks on.

    John lets the lambkin out,
    and Herod the Butcher lies in wait for it.
    We lead a patient,
    an innocent, patient,
    dear little lamb to its death.
    Saint Luke slaughters the ox
    without any thought or concern.
    Wine doesn’t cost a penny
    in the heavenly cellars;
    The angels bake the bread.

    Good greens of every sort
    grow in the heavenly vegetable patch,
    good asparagus, string beans,
    and whatever we want.
    Whole dishfuls are set for us!
    Good apples, good pears and good grapes,
    and gardeners who allow everything!
    If you want roebuck or hare,
    on the public streets
    they come running right up.
    And the television shows are all good
    and these meds work real great.

    Should a fast day come along,
    all the fishes at once come swimming with joy.
    There goes Saint Peter running
    with his net and his bait
    to the heavenly pond.
    Saint Martha must be the cook.

    There is just no music on earth
    that can compare to ours.
    Even the eleven thousand virgins
    venture to dance,
    and Saint Ursula herself has to laugh.
    There is just no music on earth
    that can compare to ours.
    Cecilia and all her relations
    make excellent court musicians.
    The angelic voices
    gladden our senses,
    so that all awaken for joy.

  22. David N Apr 21st 2010 at 11:25 pm 22

    There’s medication because all the TVs are standard def. Yuck.

  23. Keynote Apr 23rd 2010 at 12:14 am 23

    I figured that he died from some additional (and unmentioned) bad side effects.

  24. Steffen Apr 23rd 2010 at 04:48 pm 24

    For what it’s worth I got it (even the side effects are good) and found it funny
