Annuale: You May Develop a Leathery Tail
Last night’s Saturday Night Live included a dead on spoof of pharmaceutical advertising, in the form of an ad for “Annuale,” a fake oral contraceptive that allows you to get your period only once a year.

In the days around your period, you may develop a leathery tail. Annuale may cause you to develop a second vagina.” Heh.
