The Gullibility of Asses

I was very surprised and quite amused to find that self-proclaimed psychic, Jackie Stallone is a practitioner of rumpology - the making of psychic readings from asses. According to her, it involves "reading the lines, crevices, dimples, and folds of the buttocks to divine the individual's character and gain an understanding of what has occurred in the past and get a prediction of the future."
Clear nonsense! And people apparently pay her and other "experts" in the field to have their derrieres read. Is there no limit to gullibility?
Another so-called psychic, Sheree Silver, is quoted in the Wikipedia article on Rumpology as saying: "I can't imagine anyone wasting their time and money on someone like this when there are so many legitimate psychics out there." I almost agree with her - except the bit about "legitimate psychics."
