Town pigeon, country pigeon

This is the time of year when the NZ native pigeons gorge themselves on broom flowers and tree lucerne, then get blorched out and fall out of the foliage and sit there on the ground, looking perplexed, waiting for someone to wander by and put them in a pie.

In terms of brain-to-body ratio, they are right down there with Brâncuși's Măiastra.

Brâncuși was just reducing them to naked brainstems.

Ooooof, I found a wellspring of medical griftiness and decided to unleash the Smut.

I heard a radio ad about a practice that promises up to 40 pounds of weight loss in a month:

Here's the kicker:

Although Dr. Ray has been traditionally trained a s a Doctor of Chiropractic, he presents and offers NutriMost services as member only services under his Pastoral Medicine License # L29076049. Dr. Ray is a Christian who believes that God created this body with an amazing healing power and that there is nothing outside the body, that is as powerful as the power that God put inside the body. Pastoral Medicine is the Professional Blend of Scriptural Health Wisdom and Understanding along with Leading Edge Science. The NutriMost services are pastoral health services and should not be confused with state regulated services.

It gets better, it uses a dubious device:

Here's a farrago of 'WOO':

Using the principles of biology, quantum physics, and the science of information, we facilitate meaningful communication between computers and the human body that is an evolution of bio-feedback. It is a sequence of elegance--the computer poses the question, the body answers, and not a word is spoken–giving healthcare practitioners a better tool to bring wellness to their patients

Go get them, Good Doktor!!!

I don't know if I have anything to add to Stepheb Barrett's filleting.
It would seem, from Nondoctor Ray Wisniewski's position at the top of the Ziggurat Scheme, that there is more money to be made in licensing the package to other greedhead grifters than in dealing directly with suckers at large.

Sorry B4, but "forget it Smut, it's the USA"
