Anything legal to sell can be Groupon-ized, I guess. What is it they say about "a fool and his money"?

Speaking of Snake Oil: My younger son showed his brains today after helping his mother get some things from The Vitamin Shoppe - she needs protein drinks to support her recent bariatric surgery (and is losing weight like crazy but can't carry heavy cases of liquids) but the kid said "I'm never going in there again ... I heard the owner talking to someone in the next aisle sayinmg 'have you heard about homeopathic remedies?'"

I still have a couple of bottles of Viper Brand Liniment that I bought from Miller's Rexal in the 1990's. Its active ingredients according to the label are are Methyl Salicylate, Capsicum, Gun Camphor, Menthol, Spirits of Turpentine, Mustard, Mineral Oil and Kerosene. FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY

I researched snake oil many years ago. As best I remember, the ingredients above are pretty typical for traditional medicinal snake oil remedies. Hot pepper and turpentine, not snake products.
