Strange, but (Un)True

I am debunking a commonly held misconception. I do not believe that there is any truth to the adage that one will draw more flies with honey or molasses than with vinegar. When I used to add tea to my honey – I mean, add honey to my tea – I consumed liberal amounts of honey. I was never beset by swarms of flies, though. However, when I pour vinegar into a bowl to make a salad dressing, where before there were no gnats, suddenly there are gnats. Apparently, one will draw more flies with vinegar than with honey.
