Hello, my name is cuppycup and I am a doctor. Unfortunately, the fascists won’t allow me to write prescriptions so I have to live out fantasies like you see below on social media. This general idea comes from a ridiculous beauty Instagram account, and ABKitch suggested I make an Aggie version. He hasn’t tweeted since the mentions started rolling in so I hope he’s okay.

These are the 9 pills I presented, and I spent about 1 minute thinking of these, but the exercise ended up creating some mildly amusing conversation which is a big win for a blog.

I posted this on my personal Twitter @cuppycup and on the GBH Facebook page. These are the results, which I am required by law to say will shock you.

The most noteworthy difference between Twitter and Facebook is the desire (or lack thereof) to play Texas in football again. I did not double-count votes for people who said they would take two of the same pill, and many Facebookers wanted two #5s. Special attention to the people who took both #5 and #8, opting to renew the rivalry and have the world end in a fiery hellstorm before it could be played.
