Annie,

This post was just too funny! What it proves is that some people will BELIEVE anything and BUY anything! Sort of on the same topic ... my niece posted something on FACEBOOK about trying a new kind of beer, saying it was the best she'd ever had. It's made with whale tesicles! EWWW!!!

Take care,
Jane

Hilarious! My dad's favorite response to all this "newfangled stuff" was "Boy, they saw you coming!" I find myself saying it more and more lately. The thing is, all these crazy products are really taking the fun out of April Fool's Day! Used to be if you said "whale testicle beer" everybody would laugh. Now they consider you to have a highly sophisticated palate. *snort, giggle*

Back in the 1960's we moved to the countryside and as i was digging the new garden i came across an old jar and it had a bear on it with the words,..Genuine Bear Grease,..For Restoring The Growth Of Hair,..i wonder how many were fooled with that one.

I guess there have been "snake oil salesmen" since the Stone Age!
