Washington, D.C. - Attorneys for the Federal Food and Drug Administration today ordered Symbicort to cease and desist its misleading television ad that portrays a huffing and puffing, COPD-afflicted wolf unable to blow down the little pig's brick home unless he tries their product.

The case arose after complaints from a wolf who tried Symbicort for a month but failed to dislodge one brick. He also filed a related anti-discrimination complaint with the Justice Department. alleging that wolves are depicted in a demeaning manor in the commercial.

The wolf in the commercial said he was only doing what he was paid for, and he didn't think the cartoon-like ad should be interpreted as offensive to wolves or pigs.

Makers of Symbicort do not comment on pending legal action. Meanwhile, the president, amused by the ad. has overridden the FDA, and has ordered the courts to let the commercials continue to run.

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