I was genuinely surprised to see this site come out of a US federal agency these days, I thought it was from the UK at first.

Really interesting information, though I will likely have "Walk This Way" stuck in my head all night.

Someone here who worked in a drug store said that these are the most shoplifted item by far, but if you put them behind the counter people are too embarrassed to ask for them.
