Which job would you rather have: naming new pharmaceuticals, or being the copywriter who gets to Weird Al their names into songs from from the 70s?

If I go with the naming gig is my credit score above or below 700?

My decision is made and Parliament Pharmadelic is now a registered LLC.


I know a guy who names pharma. Owns his own shop, lives in a million dollar home. I get to shoehorn sloths into commercials. For an independent agency owner. I live in a condominium. Who wins?

I give you the edge. You’re well on your way to a million dollar home, and he’ll never get to work with sloths schilling for Trulicity or Dexplatin or whatever.
