There comes a point when the plethora of bland warnings become meaningless. Are nut allergy warnings on absolutely everything really useful to people who suffer from nut allergies?
Two recent insanities I encountered…
The cats having shredded the last scratching post and rediscovered the glorious sensation of de-piling rugs, I ventured out for a replacement. The Willow brand of very attractive, all natural cat scratching post offers the following warning,
“Pets should be supervised at all times when playing on this equipment.”
I was shopping for underwear for James today and a multi-pack of briefs caught my eye, sized for 2-3 year olds, it carried this warning:
“Warning: Small parts.”
“Unsuitable for children under 36 months.”
Debenhams’ directors can sleep easier knowing they cannot now be sued by distraught parents whose infant unwittingly ingested his underpants.
