So Cindy and I are shopping at the local big box store, and a product display catches my eye — mostly because of the stacks of small metal cans, labeled with a label featuring a honeybee and a rattlesnake.

I look. The product is a supposed healing balm. The ingredients are honeybee venom and “viper oil.”

In other words, the local big box store is literally selling its customers snake oil.
