Cold? Go Amish

Unusual ad in our local paper SMDP [pages 8 & 9]: "Amish man's new miracle idea helps home heat bills hit rock bottom," says the headline. "Miracle heaters being given away free with orders for real Amish fireplace mantles to launch the new invention that slashes heat bills." Turns out it is all miracle B.S. What is surprising is that a Los Angeles newspaper would bother to include it in its pages. The Amish must pay top dollars for their ads.
