More Advert Skullduggery
In yet another example of the evils of labeling, my wife has a pack of Oil of Olay facial wipes that say on the package, 'opthamologist tested, dermatologist tested'. The obvious effect is that most sheeple would look at that and think, 'hmmm, if doctors tested it, it must be safe.' The thinking person, on the other hand, might just wonder where the rest of those sentences are. It could very well be that the opthamologist tested the wipes, and then screamed,'For the love of all that's holy, keep these death rags as far from human eyes as possible!!' And the dermatologist may have died horribly in a pool of his own melted flesh. Of course, I doubt either of those things occured, but those inferences are every bit as valid given the information provided.
