That's my answer to this week's blog blast question, "Is Common Sense Really All That Uncommon?" Lawsuits are spiraling out of hand. Did you hear about the guy who sued himself for violating his own civil rights? Or the guy who wanted $67 million for his (allegedly) missing pants? And lawsuits like this aren't uncommon. I for one, am sick of lawsuits. You hear about a new crazy one almost daily. So I can see why some manufacturers are a little worried. I can see that they'd like to
CYA protect themselves from this. But in order to do that, they have to get just as ridiculous with their warning labels. Like this:
You mean that little fan they use for a motor might hurt someone?
Damn. Maybe I can use my stove...
Then how will I clean out my fireplace?
Don't they know that blue eye shadow is soo over?
So, let me get this straight. My ass isn't supposed to be bleeding?
"wearing them is no substitute for normal safety precautions"
So maybe I shouldn't shoot myself in the eye, huh?
But I thought that if I drink it, it would keep me warm in the winter...
What, you mean I can't pack the baby when I move?
You know it's getting bad when the warning label people have resorted to just telling people to try and use some common sense.
