Lebanese crooks

There are many Lebanese crooks peddling different treatments and schemes on Lebanese TV stations: their version of infomercials. One guy wants to sell you a cream that you can put on your head to cure hair loss, or use as an anal cream, if you suffer from hemorrhoids--the same cream. I kid you not. Another crook yesterday was promoting an appetite suppressing pill: he said that it was selected by the Spanish government as its official diet pill, and that it was "recommended" by the American Ministry of Health. Kid you not.
