Kingsley, stop kidding the guys about our legal naturopathic status here in Oz..

Would you like Blackmores white red or blue with your next script for cough medicine...Personally, I like Blackmores reds with my Blackmores Bitter.

For those confused outside of Oz. A naturopathic chemical company has finally got our pharmacy guild to allow the point of sale naturopathic advice (selling that chemical companies product) with each script. Should the pharmacist choose to do so..

I think this would be the only time Brian would allow a dripping cynicism gag on cigarettes and beer...

Richard Saunders and Dr Rachie are a livid about this as the rest of us..

You know, the pharmacist is always very polite when I get my scripts. Maybe its the sleeveless vest..

Oh dear... the pharmacist has ust expanded into a "nutrient" super mart and boldly proclaimed "you know its all good for you!".

Obviously I am not a hypochondriac and..I told him so...

Last time I buy my eye candles there I tell you!

The signals for the podcast were reduced by a factor of a thousand. This process was repeated several times until the true power of the podcast was unlocked.

Love You Brian! I am cured!!!
