I was watching TV tonight when they ran a commercial for a nasal spray called Patanase and as usual, I wasn't really paying attention.  When they ran through the list of possible side effects, my subconscious picked up on one of them, giving me a "wait, did they say what I think they said?" moment.  Fortunately, I was watching the show on my computer, so I just backed up a few seconds and ran through it again.  And again.  And again, just to make sure.  Yup, I heard it right the first time.

"Hole in the nasal septum."

Holes.  In your nose.

This drug can put holes in your nose!

Wow.  That's almost as bad as anal leakage.
