Mate: Ooh, I finally saw QI the other night.
Me: It’s good hey?
Mate: Brilliant. I couldn’t believe it. (Leans over and points at anus). I saw on there that suppositories don’t actually work.
Me: What do you mean?
Mate: They don’t work. There’s no medical evidence that they do anything. People just think they do.
Me: What, so, they’re like a placebo?
Mate: (After a brief pause). No, wait. Placebos. Placebos don’t actually work.
