by Ballard Quass, the Drug War Philosopher




May 13, 2020

MCEE: Introducing the man who has passed more drugs tests than any other comedian on the planet.

ADDERALL: On Planet Mars, that is.

[laughter]

EMCEE: Let's hear it for Adderall Zoloft.

ADDERALL: Hey, use me only as directed, folks.

[applause]

ADDERALL: Here's a little riddle to warm you guys up. What do you get when you cross banisteriopsis caapi with psychotria viridis?

PAXIL: I don't know. What do you get when you cross banisteriopsis caapi with psychotria viridis?

ADDERALL: Ten to twenty years in the state penitentiary.

[drum]

[laughter]

No, seriously. You actually get ayahuasca if you're lucky.

PAXIL: Ayahuasca?

ADDERALL: That's right. Ayahuasca. Speaking of which, did you know that there's actually a church in America that has won the legal right to use ayahuasca in its religious rituals?

[applause]

I kid you not. Needless to say, the DEA fought that one all the way to the Supreme Court.

PAXIL: That figures.

ADDERALL: I'm happy to report however that they lost that final case, 9 to freakin' zero.

[applause]

I don't like to gloat, but when I heard that outcome, I was like, "In your face, with a can of mace!"

[laughter]

PAXIL: I know what you mean, Adderall.

ADDERALL: Really?

PAXIL: Yeah. I myself was like, "Up your nose with a garden hose!"

[laughter]

ADDERALL: Paxil Busspar, ladies and gentlemen, my loyal sidekick. How are you tonight, Paxil?

[applause]

PAXIL: I'm doing great, Adderall.

ADDERALL: Oh, really?

PAXIL: Yes, I just passed my drug test to work at Taco Bell.

[laughter]

ADDERALL: Your parents must be so proud of you.

PAXIL: I know, right?

ADDERALL: But I'm a little puzzled.

PAXIL: Oh, really? How so?

ADDERALL: I thought you agreed with me that drug testing was so much Christian Science bull [bleep].

PAXIL: Yes, I usually do, but this drug test was actually fair for a change.

ADDERALL: The drug test was fair? What do you mean?

PAXIL: Well, after the test was over, the lab guys actually congratulated me for the drug that I had in my system. They said I had chosen well.

ADDERALL: That's interesting. And what drug did you have in your system, Paxil?

PAXIL: I can't tell you and give away the answer.

[drum]

[laughter]

ADDERALL: Fair point.

PAXIL: Suffice it to say that it was a so called entheogen, and it helped sharpen my thinking and made me more friendly and compassionate. The lab guys actually said that it would help make me a valuable addition to the Taco Bell work force.

[laughter]

ADDERALL: Aha. I bet it was a mushroom from the genus psilocybe.

PAXIL: Tut tut Adderall. Nice try, but I'm not going to give away the answer, since you haven't taken this particular drug test yet.

ADDERALL: Fair enough, Paxil. Fair enough. I'm actually waiting for someone to create a church around the ritual use of psilocybin.

[applause]

PAXIL: Good for you.

ADDERALL: Say, Paxil, is it legal to murder a ghost?

PAXIL: I don't know. There's precious little case law in that area. Why do you ask?

ADDERALL: I was thinking of summoning the ghost of Francis Burton Harrison via Ouija Board and then beating the crap out of him, for outlawing opium in 1914.

PAXIL: I'm afraid that would never work, Adderall.

ADDERALL: Why not, Paxil?

PAXIL: Because Francis's ghost would realize that the seance was a set-up job, and so he would never appear.

[laughter]

ADDERALL: Well, I'm still mighty sore at that bonehead.

PAXIL: Me too, Adderall.

ADDERALL: That man up-ended American democracy with his so-called Narcotics Act which, for the first time in American history, criminalized a freakin' plant.

[boo]

PAXIL: Now, Adderall, watch your blood pressure.

ADDERALL: I know, Paxil, but the man succeeded single-handedly in replacing the natural law on which America was founded with common law, criminalizing plants, which are the birth right of anyone who is born on planet earth.

[applaud]

PAXIL: Well, I'm sure he meant well, Paxil.

ADDERALL: Meant well? The man is responsible for millions of unnecessary deaths.

PAXIL: Remember your blood pressure.

ADDERALL: And he single-handedly created a violent movie genre in which sanctimonious Americans go south to intervene in supposedly sovereign countries in order to shoot Latinos.

[gasp]

[boo]

And why? Because they're selling plant-based medicines that have been used responsibly for millennia by non-western cultures.

PAXIL: We've talked about this, Adderall. Your audiences don't like it when you get on your high horse.

ADDERALL: It's just pops my buttons, that's all.

PAXIL: I know.

ADDERALL: I mean, stop the god [bleep] war on mother nature's [bleep] plants already.

PAXIL: It sounds like somebody didn't get a nap this afternoon.

[baby cries]

[laughter]

ADDERALL: Sorry about that, Paxil. Now then, where were we?

PAXIL: I think we were just getting to the part where everything that we say is hilarious and elicits hearty guffaws from the audience.

ADDERALL: You hear that, audience? Watch for your cue now.

[laughter]

PAXIL: I know, why don't you tell a joke?

ADDERALL: Good idea. Okay, let's see. What do you get when you cross an anti-Chinese electorate with WASP Americans who have a jaundiced view of mother nature's plants and fungi?

PAXIL: I don't know. What do you get when you cross an anti-Chinese electorate with WASP Americans who have a jaundiced view of mother nature's plants and fungi?

ADDERALL: You get the Harrison Narcotics Act of 1914, that's what you get.

[drum]

[laughter]

PAXIL: Oh, there you go again!

[drum]

[laughter]

EMCEE: Let's hear it for the only comedian whose stand-up routine is listed as schedule one by the DEA.

ADDERALL: That's right folks. They can't even study me in laboratories without an act of Congress.

EMCEE: Adderall Zoloft!
