Stress Meds on 'Boondocks' Have Stressful Side EffectsOn 'The Boondocks' (Sun., 11:30PM ET on CN), Robert's doctor warns him about the dangers of stress and gives him a prescription that will supposedly help lower his blood pressure. But "Zortafrinex" has its own issues.

Just as he's about to take the first pill, a commercial for the drug appears on TV. Like every pharmaceutical spot, a soothing voice-over says, "Ask your doctor if Zortafrinex is right for you."

Then while the actor in the ad is happily sailing, golfing, painting and playing guitar, the voice-over reveals a lengthy list of side effects, at high speed. Among them are "mild death, blindness, massive heart attack, difficulty breathing, erectile fungus."

The ad goes on to mention "a rare and extremely unpleasant side effect known as Total Scrotal Implosion ... [for which] there is no cure." Stressful indeed.
