The citation here links to Flunixin and I'm afraid I'm not getting the joke. Could someone please enlighten me?

My assumption was the disturbing lack of citations/references for the drug's workings on that page. Note the edits since this what-if went up. :wink:
It's also possible that the joke is related to the name of the drug, but in that case I don't get it either.
