Then there is the rehashed AP article from a few months ago:
Yep... no confusion there.
Update: And if all that isn't enough, apparently now sunbathing is addictive (H/T to The Agitator):
A class action lawsuit is being prepared against Big Sunscreen for the addictive smells of coconut.
Update II: I wonder... if sunbathing is addictive, would that make artifical tanning lotions the sunbathing equivolent of a nicotine patch? Maybe they're missing a whole new marketing segment.
