Spoofs!

A number of spoofs have been created by various authors in order to draw attention to ridiculous claims for orthodox or complementary medicines. Filled with satire, irony or sheer nonsense, they are included here for some light relief!

  • The Miracle Wonder Drug FUKITOL. Curing all of life’s ailments…
  • HAVIDOL is the first and only treatment for Dysphoric Social Attention Consumption Deficit Anxiety Disorder (DSACDAD)
  • Tim Minchin’s Storm the Animated Movie
    In the confines of a London dinner party, comedian Tim Minchin argues with a hippy named Storm. While Storm herself may not be converted, audiences from London to LA have been won over by Tim’s wordplay and the timely message of the film in a society where science and reason are portrayed as the enemy of belief.
  • The comedian Dara O’Briain with home truths about quackery (various delusions pretending to be medicine).
  • That Mitchell and Webb Look: Homeopathic A&E: A hilarious sketch from the fourth episode of series three, on a Homeopathy Emergency Department.
  • Occasionally we come across images or cartoons that are not just funny, but make a relevant point that makes one think.
