ENDERMIC – The Word of the Day, 29 June 2015

en-der’-mic adj Acting through the skin, or by direct application to the skin, as an endermic medicine.  Examples:

1  Waldo was having some ED problems, so his mistress packed him off to the doctor.  The good physician told Waldo to visit the local drugstore and pick up one of those skin patches that cure “Low T”.  But Waldo bought two, slapped on both, and now suffers an embarrassing case of priapism (which we shall define at a later date).

2.  Joyce suffered a sudden pain in her chest, left arm and jaw and began to gasp for air.  She popped a nitroglycerine tablet, an endermic medication, under her tongue and within moments was back on the squash court, right as rain.
