Comments: What Do You Expect From A Poison?

When I was young my grandfather went through Chemotherapy to fight lung cancer. It made him very sick and I wondered aloud at the time if the cure might not be worse than the disease.

My grandmother explained it thusly:

Chemotherapy is the practice of poisoning a cancer patient with the hope that the cancer dies before the patient does.

Seemed pretty apropos to me at the time and, after having had several other friends and family members go through it, it still does.
