The pharmacist walks into his store to find a guy leaning heavily against a wall.

He asks the Newfie clerk: "What is with that guy over there by the wall?"

The clerk responds: "Well, he came in here this morning to get something for his cough. I couldn't find the cough syrup, so I gave him an entire bottle of Laxative."

The pharmacist yells: "You idiot, you can't treat a cough with a laxative!"

The Newfie clerk responds......."Of course you can! Look at him, he's afraid to cough."
