I Was One Disappointed Little Kid

I remember as a little kid seeing ads for Sea Monkeys in comic books right next to the Charles Atlas and X-ray spex ads which were also B.S. I ordered some and instead of what was depicted in the ad's picture of them resembling cute human like pets, I received tiny brine shrimp.  They'd claimed  of the crustaceans that they come back from the dead and that they could even be trained and hypnotized! Hell of a way to take advantage of little kids.
