    Time Magazine seems to think that it could be..

    Well, JP may be right, but that doesn’t exclude the possibility that Avandia is the first Avandia, which could actually be an even less appealing scenario. Incidentally, I don’t like “Not Across the Front Part,” as a name, so I shall henceforth be calling Avandia “Gostrewfochypo,” which is an amalgam of a Greek, Swedish and Proto-Indo-European words. This translates as “Guest room fuck up,” which, as fans of Blackadder will know, is a contraction of the innocent observation that something has gone wrong: “Shall I prepare the guest room for Mr Fuck Up?”
