This is a Thing that Happened and I Need to Go Back to Bed

This happened. This actually freaking happened: ‘Hot Dog Water’ seller in Vancouver gets laughs to prove point. Yes, you are reading that correctly; this guy was selling bottles of “hot dog water”, complete with a wiener inside the bottle, for the “health benefits”. Seriously.

Bevans promised the water would lead to increased brain function, weight loss and a youthful appearance, even erasing crow’s feet when applied to the face in the form of a lip balm, which he also happened to sell.

And people believed this. Dear sweet friggin’ Primus, people actually believed this shit.

“We noticed that some people were rubbing lip balm on their crow’s feet and they were swearing their crow’s feet were disappearing before their eyes,” he said.

One man who rubbed the lip balm on his “dome” sent him photos suggesting it promoted hair growth, Bevans said.

The most depressing thing?

Bevans said he sold 60 litres worth of the products.

Yes, he sold 60 liters of this crap. Sixty. Liters. Let that sink in for a momemt. Because people lack filters and critical thinking skills. And people wonder why I have such a dim damn view of humanity. I think it should be fairly obvious by now.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
