The Winner Is...

The Intermittent Explosive Disorder Name-That-Drug contest is officially over. If you participated, thank you. There were many excellent entries and choosing a winner was extremely difficult. Here's how we decided it:

Third runner-up:
Rambian CR - A new controlled-release prescription medication that comes in two layers. The first layer dissolves quickly, to make you feel drowsy as you get behind the wheel, thus limiting your ability to aim your Ford Explorer at other cars, buildings, animals and humans. Then, the second layer dissolves slowly, to help you stay sleepy on your two-hour commute and avoid purposely driving your Hummer over the top of stalled cars as you use the emergency lane to pass slower traffic.

Second-place:
Paxle - Combines Pax (peace) and a crucial part of a car (axle). Posted by Bill @ 6/07/2006 10:04 AM

Drumroll, please. And the winner is...
Propedia - Makes the patient less likely to drive to their destination and increases compassion for pedestrians, but due to it's chemical similarity to Propecia, causes hair to grow in weird places. Posted by peakguy @ 6/06/2006 2:38 PM

PeakGuy, Bill, John, shoot me an e-mail with your mailing address and I will send you each an autographed copy of Honku: The Zen Antidote to Road Rage. It makes for excellent bathroom reading and an ideal re-gift at your next Holiday grab-bag office party. Congratulations!
