Placebo Along With This Song!

The cat is here to get you to agree. I know you always do with me. Pffft and I'm really a dog. Wait, I used that one at my blog. Bah, I'll use it a time or two more. Ready to agree galore?

That pill is neat.
It is so sweet.
It can cure everything.
It can even make you sing.

Took it like a fool.
It may make you drool.
But look, you are happy.
That pill may really have been snappy.

This TV show is the best.
It just beats all the rest.
How about it?
You must watch every bit.

Oh, it was crap?
Whoops, I took a nap.
But you watched and loved it.
Damn, I'm good at this shit.

That car is great.
Screw the interest rate.
It is top notch.
Buy yourself some scotch.

What? It broke down?
Don't look at me and frown.
You still think it is the best.
Was a fluke so no detest.

Oh yeah, suck back the dope.
It can even give you hope.
With each and every joint,
A new idea you will appoint.

It will cure you too.
Of everything at your zoo.
Wait! Didn't the pill do that?
Double whammy where you're at.

Whoops, it did not?
You just got brain rot?
Bah, you don't believe that.
It melted off the fat.

Now you're in the know.
So give each a go.
Search high, search low.
Gotta love a little placebo.

Are you a placebo case? Believe all with a smiley face? That may be bad for you. A sugar pill won't cure all at your zoo. And a bad car is a bad car. Who cares if some celebrity drives it far. Don't be a placebo nut or you'll just get stuck in a rut. But if you really want fortune, fame, health and love don't wish for it from above. You just have to go eat some nice green grass. Yep, you can trust, not really, my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  5. Fortune, fame, health and love all take work to happen. You can rarely achieve any of them by placebos of any sort.

  9. Crowd: We need a cure! We need a cure!

    Dr. Hibbert: Why, the only cure is bed rest. Anything I give you would only be a placebo.

    Woman in Crowd: Where do we get these placebos?

    Man: Maybe there's some in this truck!

    [the panicky crowd push over a truck, boxes labeled "danger killer bees" break open, the bees go everywhere and everyone panics, one man puts a bee in his mouth]

    Man: I'm cured! I mean, ouch!

  10. Well everyone knows eating grapefruit will make you lose weight. Lord knows, I eat my grapefruit everyday along with a large slice of chocolate cake and several scoops of ice cream. Sooner or later, that scale dial will move to a lower number. I'm patient. Those high numbers are just the devil talking.

  21. Placebo is a great concept. Not only medicine, but I have found it useful in emotional stuff too. Especially when someone is sad for no apparent reason, distracting them or telling them otherwise seems to cheer them up. Don't know if it could be considered placebo, though.

    1. That is more of a distraction though
      Placebo is more when they believe and don't know
