As I was watching a game last weekend a commercial for the drug Viagra came on. Viagra, the drug that, well, you know, obviously targets the male demographic for their ads, which, like most drugs these days, spent the bulk of their commercial having announcer guy read the disclaimer.

Normally, I pay little-to-no attention to these ads, but this one caught my attention. I realized that by manipulating a few words, the exact same disclaimer can run at the onset of every Cleveland Browns game for their fans. Don't believe me? see for yourself.

Here is the exact disclaimer, with just a few words changed:

Ask you doctor if you heart is healthy enough for the Browns. Do not watch the Browns if you take nitrates for chest pain as they may cause an unsafe rise in blood pressure. Side effects may include headache, flushing, upset stomach and abnormal vision. To avoid long term injury, seek medical attention for a game lasting more than four hours. Stop watching the Browns right away and call your doctor if you experience sudden loss of vision or hearing.

Now look me in the eye and tell me it doesn't work perfectly. You can't, can you.

Where can I comment?
