Panther Piss

I was watching the old boob tube and one of those damned new medication commercials popped up. I forget the name of the medicine but it was for RA. What in the fuck is up with that? I can remember when diseases and ailments had real motherfucking names not just some damned initials. I can remember when RA was still called Rheumatoid Arthritis. Hell, I can remember when it was just called Rheumatism and the only comfort from it was a big dose of corn liquor.

It was vividly portrayed in that epistle of cultural diversity, The Beverly Hillbillies. Granny was known from Bugtussle to Beverly Hills for her extra special Rheumatiz Medicine. Come to think of it I have been a little creaky in the old joints as of late. Perhaps I should just get me a big ol’ snort of some good ol’ Panther Piss.
