{.white salmon.}

In order to flog off a bunch of white salmon he acquired on the cheap, P T Barnum placed a sign on the door that said:

Fresh salmon, guaranteed not to turn pink in the can.

The story often reminds me of how often we are being fed rubbish and how we lap them up each and every damn time.  Wear skinny jeans to make your legs long and your butt small.  Own an iMac, an Android phone and a Kindle to streamline your life.  Clogs are totally in.  Diet Coke makes you thin.  OMG the list is endless.

I like Barnum.  It was he who said,

there is a sucker born every minute.
