Hopefully, the chart is self-explanatory.

In case it is unclear, this is something I found on Flickr. Posted by James at February 28, 2008 2:09 PM

LOL, that's cute.

I'm having trouble reading it, though, cuz I'm a 'murikan. Could you put it to a catchy tune??

Sorry to comment again, but I'm wondering if he takes ten pills and he's just giving a reason for each one, or if he takes 55 pills.

The song is ambiguous, but I think he just takes 10 for everything, everything, everything, everything.

At that point, it's probably only relevant to the medical examiner.

Funny. And clever. What gave you the idea to graph the song?

It's not mine, it belongs to boyshapedbox (see link).

It just struck me funny.

Wow I must be living under a rock. Means nothing to me. What song?

Okay googled it. I don't feel nearly as dumb now. I don't think I've ever heard this song and or that matter I don't think I could name a single song by that group.

I think it's just 10 pills in all - he's just itemizing what each one is for. But I like the graph.

They look like Tylenol coated caplets, though. Perhaps he's trying to destroy his liver slowly. :)

It was popular with the alternative crowd when we were in college. I remember being a freshman and listening to it on WUSM eating lunch alone in the brief time before I met you, Maggie and other friends.

Oh, you shouldn't feel dumb, Chuck. The Violent Femmes were one of those bands that really only existed so people with taste had something to listen to while the rest of you were rocking out to Madonna. LOL.
