Despite what some have intimated I am no paid shill of the argan oil industry or the Moroccan government. Yes I write about the topic frequently, and my popularity as a writer here does bring both free and generally positive publicity, but this is only a fortunate side effect of my own interest in argan oil. As my loyal readers know this interest stems solely and completely from its proven capacity as a humorous topic for satirical articles in the style of (but not copying or infringing on any trademarks or copyrights of) The Onion. I have never accepted a gift or a bribe of any sort though I would be very willing to if offered. In fact, if any rich Moroccan government ministers or fabulously wealthy argan oil executives are reading this I am available and open to any and all forms of payment or favors you wish to bestow. I will write whatever you want me to with no objections, ethical or otherwise. In fact if you tell me to write an article describing how argan oil has been proven effective in weight loss, I will write three. If you ask me to post a fact free, completely made up story about how argan oil saved the life of the Pope, I’ll write that plus I’ll add a section about how Jesus himself was thought to have used the oil as part of his daily health and beauty regimen. Call me or email me anytime! Please?
