    Novocain is a local anesthetic that is very useful in producing a loss of feeling immediately prior to surgery or dental procedures. The drug is applied through injection of a solution and is relatively short-acting. Due to the high rate of allergenic reactions observed by clinical use of Novocain, the drug has been largely replaced with similar pharmaceuticals (such as Lidocaine) having less potent side effects.

    Side effects include skin rash, hives, and itching.

    Novocaine was made by politicians and injected in out butts.

    The reason why is the kill as much of the pain that we feel when they rape us. The goal is to give us enough, and rape us enough that eventually we will be numb and not feel a thing.
