Ha-ha-ha! The only thing fish-oil pills will do is give you bad breath. Sorta like Snake Oil in years gone by. Should be easy to pick out the thieves with a good scent-hound on duty. :-)

Trout can stick with his snake oil. Fish oil works. It's cheap, and worth every penny.

Trout's problem is he buys the cheapest fish oil out there. Spend a buck a jar more at costco and get the burpless.
