This is a half-bottle of cough syrup, from back in the day when cough syrup was a powerful narcotic that you'd need a prescription, a hefty bribe, and a note from the governor to get today. And it's been sitting in that cabinet, thickening and congealing for god-only-knows how long. This is gonna be some primo stuff.

  • Denis Leary's famous bit about the effects of NyQuil, from No Cure for Cancer, is a part of the description and effect of this item.
  • The line about tasting "the entire universe" may be a reference to Q of Star Trek fame.
  • Cough syrup containing heroin has not been available in the U.S. since 1924. Cough syrup containing codeine is still available behind-the-counter in some states such as Ohio.
