Rhino Horn in 2017

2017-02-09-20-42-01

Betta fish are shipped from California to the pet store in tiny bags of water, wrapped in an L.A. newpaper printed in Korean.

Normally there’s not much I can decipher (although it’s easier to understand than Finnegan’s Wake) but this ad is clear. The rhino horn images reflect the goofy belief that a substance made of the same stuff as fingernails can act as an aphrodisiac.

I found an English version of the ad and fortunately the product does not contain real rhino . I guess it’s no different from carrying a rabbit’s foot but rabbits aren’t nearing extinction.
