The Silver Surfer one is a gift that keeps on giving. O Lord.
It reminds me of a Halloween party I went to in 1986 or 1987. One of my friends decided to go as Merlin from Excalibur, so he bought a fake beard, a cape, and heavy aluminum foil to make a skullcap; he mounted a styrofoam sphere on a mop handle for the staff. Then he stuck the beard to his face with electrical tape--
hhuh huh HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA ACK COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH
...stuck the beard to his face with ele...el...BAAA HA HA HA HA HA HA COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH

Boortz links an article demonstrating that Obama is ignorant and dismissive of any and all negative effects of his policies.
"My CEO sat with the President over lunch with two other CEOs, and each of them tried to explain to the President what this bill would do to our companies and the economy in general. First the President didn't understand what they were talking about. Then he basically told my boss he was lying. Frankly my boss was embarrassed for him; he clearly had not been briefed and didn't know what was in the bill."This kind of arrogance doesn't bode well for us. We've got this turkey in the Oval Office at least until January 20, 2013. Until then, it's Amateur Hour in the White House. *sigh*

...that made me stop laughing, finally. O God that was horrible. I couldn't stop laughing; and so I alternated between laughing and coughing. I had tears and snot and mucus coming out of all the various holes in my face and my pulmonary system was stuck in an infinite loop. Jesus. I shouldn't have looked at the Silver Surfer again.
Actually the thing that did it was remembering that dude with the fake beard stuck to his face with elel... elec--oh no
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH
....--trical tape. And when he'd talk, the beard would make this idiotic flapping motion that looked like someone had stuck a semaphore flag to his face.
Electrical tape. Jesus.

Anyway, I was able to watch anime and laugh at it without coughing my lungs out. I don't know: I thought I was getting better, but this morning I started with the hacking cough again. So I've bought the fourth bottle of guaifenesin cough syrup.
The total taken so far:
1.5 bottles of dextromethorphan syrup
3.5 bottles of guaifenesin syrup
As I said in a prior post, I have never before had a cold where I needed to use all of one bottle of cough syrup. And for this one I've used five.
On the other hand, I seem to recall the dosage of cough syrup being a bit less voluminous, like one teaspoon or so. The dose for the guaifenesin is four teaspoons; take that crap every six hours and you're going through a 4 oz. bottle in pretty short order. (I've been averaging two or three doses per day.)
I'm eagerly anticipating being over this damn cold, but it's lingering on like a bad song. Argh etc.
