A must see, it made my day:

Have a nice day,

You are nice.
Thanks. I really try to be.
Yes. You are fat and weird. But you are nice.

That is hilarious. I think that comedy is one of the bests way to knock homeopathy and other confounding absurdity. Good comedy is about exposing the absurdity of the world, and homeopathy is the proverbial broad side of the barn. I take every opportunity I can to point out that, for instance, the amount of oscillococcinum listed on the label of Boiron's expensive sugar pills is "0mg per serving" (and it is nearly $1.00 USD per tablet). Once having done that, I can start using the word "homeopathy" with them to mean anything with "less than no substance". My friends have started using the word the same way. I think it can be a pretty good way to marginalize the idea. If everyone uses the word "homeopathy" to mean a representation of "the silly ideas people fall for", credulous people who might be otherwise inclined to consider homeopathy will think twice. I believe there may be a strong correlation between credulity and social reinforcement. If you have to work hard to find someone who agrees with you about an idea you did not form yourself, eventually you will probably give up on it.
