From Dave Barry:  
"...on the day before my colonoscopy... I didn't eat any solid food...Then, in the evening, I took the MoviPrep. ...you have to drink the whole jug. This takes about an hour, because MoviPrep tastes -- and here I am being kind -- like a mixture of goat spit and urinal cleanser, with just a hint of lemon.  
"The instructions for MoviPrep, clearly written by somebody with a great sense of humor, state that after you drink it, 'a loose watery bowel movement may result.' This is kind of like saying that after you jump off your roof, you may experience contact with the ground. 
"MoviPrep is a nuclear laxative. ...There are times when you wish the commode had a seat belt."
