Suspicions Confirmed | Want to Get Away? • Visitors crowding into a Vancouver, Canada, street festival on June 17 were invited -- at $38 a pop -- to try a new health craze: Hot Dog Water. The drink is marketed as a gluten-free, Keto diet-compatible, post-workout source of sodium and electrolytes, and every sleek bottle, which promises to help with weight loss, also contains a hot dog. It's also a prank. Hot Dog Water CEO Douglas Bevans told Global News the product was dreamed up as a response to the "snake oil salesmen" of health marketing. In small print at the bottom of the sales sheet is this disclaimer: "Hot Dog Water in its absurdity hopes to encourage critical thinking related to product marketing and the significant role it can play in our purchasing choices." Touche. [Global News, 6/17/2018]

For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain
thereof than fine gold."
