Funny....LOL Thebacon (INN; pronounced /ˈθiːbəkɒn/), or dihydrocodeinone enol acetate, is a semisynthetic opioid that is similar to hydrocodone and is most commonly synthesised from thebaine. It is marketed as its hydrochloride salt under the trade name Acedicon and as the bitartrate as Diacodin and other trade names. The hydrochloride salt has a free base conversion ratio of 0.846. Other salts used in research and other settings include the phosphate, hydrobromide, citrate, hydroiodide, and sulphate. The US DEA Administrative Controlled Substance Control Number assigned by the Controlled Substances Act 1970 for thebacon and all of its salts is 9737. Thebacon it is an opioid agonist narcotic analgesic of the middle range and a strong antitussive, primarily used in Europe, although it is no longer in common use. Currently dihydrocodeine and nicocodeine are used as second-line codeine replacements. It was invented in Germany in 1924 four years after the first synthesis of hydrocodone. The other dihydromorphinone used as an antitussive is hydromorphone (Dilaudid Cough Syrup); the other narcotic antitussives are either more directly related to codeine or not so at all (open chain methadone relatives and thiambutenes).
