image for Scotch Tape Emits X-Rays and Saves Pennies; McCain Adds it to His Healthcareless Plan!
Scotch Tape X-ray saved McCain hundreds of pennies on his Senate copay

Scotch tape has been discovered to emit X-rays in zero-gravity. The reasonably priced made-in-Scotland product has been an essential part of the life of all the peoples of the planet.

Due to a patent on the magically invisible sticky stuff, it can only be made in Scotland. Scot exportation minister, Burly McTavish explained that like champagne, many regions have proprietary rights to their refined and original products.

But now that Scotch tape can create x-rays, the Scots at the export department are excited about marketing their inexpensive magic sticky stuff as the x-ray on the cheap.

One proposed ad trumpets the newly discovered properties of the tape: Forget paying that radiology copay, just don yar kilt and cover the site with scotch tape, step into some zero gravity (soon to be available at a Haggis market near you), and get an image of the broken bone, tumor or cavity for half the price and pick up an animal's stomach stuffed with grain and innards while yer at it!

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
