Don’t Try This At Home

Well the US is renowned for being a country full of people who will sue you at the drop of a hat, so it should probably come as no surprise that most products come with massive health & safety warnings in an attempt to idiot-proof them.  These are my favourite so far:

On two boxes of frozen food: “Not ready to eat.  Cook thoroughly.” and “Do not eat pizza without baking.”

On one of those big silver sun visor thingies that you put in your car’s windscreen to keep it cool when parked: “Do not drive with visor in place.”

On a hairdryer: “Do not use in the bath”

But my absolute favourite, seen tonight on a TV commercial for a car where the car is driven off the side of a cliff: “Do not attempt.  Cars cannot fly.”

    Don’t you just love those adverts on the TV that take longer to go throught the disclaimers than to advertise the products
