Kevin Trudeau b&

When it comes to Trudeau, SAGE GOES IN EVERY FIELD!

This made my day, folks.

Finally.

Finally.

The woo formula usually is:

1. Make up some wooish crap
2. Misuse scientific terms to make your crap sound legit
3. Gullible public laps it up; you get on Oprah
4. ???
5. PROFIT!

However, not many of them end up getting IRL b& for their outrageous, criminal, money grabbing, fraudulent claims. That is why when a woo finally gets b& and is prevented from hitting vid_restart on the rcon panel, us skeptics tend to rejoice a lot. It would have been better if Trudeau got permab&, but this is a step forward nonetheless.

Now, if only the law catches up with some other woos…

    Five minutes wasted puzzling over what “bampersand” meant. I am old AND overinformed about punctuation.

    Not to mention “sage goes in every field”. These kids and their yeah-yeah language.

    Oh, I remember the late night hours in which I spent a few minutes watching the commercials. Not that I believed in a single word of it, it’s just that I was curious, it was fascinating to see how he could fool all of those people, and it was entertaining to see him talk so many idiocy, but by the middle of it, I got mad at him, and changed channels. It was a bit like the 5 stages of grief, but with0ut the acceptance part, and anger going last.

    @IBY: The five stages of late-night infomercial grief:

    1. Curiosity
    2. Mild amusement
    3. Disbelief/confusion
    4. Anger
    5. Change channel

    (There’s a step six where you either repeat the whole process, or go find a softcore flick on pay cable and forget all about it.)

    Yeah, that one probably better represents the steps I went through. ^_^
