    Speaking as a former retail manager...people will buy anything if you can market it right. Wasn't there some guy selling real moose poop from Alaska about ten years ago? And Pet Rocks? I know there are lots of other examples, but my brain just froze...

    Hey...I just thought...there's a side job for Totoro! Get that moose of hers to earn some money!

    I'm a firm believer that people will buy ANYTHING. That is why I get about 40 junk emails a day. I hate them and don't seem to be able to block them.

    And yes...EWWWWWWW.:surprise:

    Folk lore about snake venom has been around for centuries -- anything from it being an aphrodisiac to a cureall for almost anything, but mainly sexually transmitted diseases.

    I guess I'm strange, I don't see the ick factor. I do see this as a a sad, horrid way for an innocent creature to die. And you gotta give the guy credit for being creative. As to the people who bought it, who knows, it might have had some effect simply because of their belief. You also have to consider that snake venom is a neurotoxin so, who knows, maybe it is more powerful than as Viagra (and easier to get in a bottle of vodka)?
