Product Warning Lables

Warning! Raisins are for eating only. Do not insert into your nose.

I just bought a counter-top oven, it’s like a large toaster oven. The first thing I saw when I pulled this thing out of the box was “WARNING: THIS PRODUCT GETS HOT” Really? It’s an oven, what sort of oven doesn’t get hot? Thank you Captain Obvious. I hate “warnings” like this. You ever notice the warning on those little packets that are placed in packages to absorb moisture? “Do not eat”, because when I find random packets of God knows what in the bottom of a shoe box I immediately want to eat it, don’t you? Either the powers that be think we are all just that stupid or everyone is afraid of everything. Personally, I think it’s a little bit of both.

 


Hello Nanny State; Happy Meal Toys Banned

Are you kidding me? Who was that he said is responsible for the health of my children, restaurants? Corporations? The government? What happened to ME, you know, the PARENT! What I want to know is what in the world makes these government officials think they have any right to regulate this?

I’m not saying fast food is great for you or that kids should eat it day and night. I’m not even saying I think it’s right for these fast food places to market bad food to kids with toys. Those things are not the issue here, this is really none of the state’s business. These opinions and decisions should be made by parents, period. How fare is this shit gonna go?
