Exclamation Really dumb warning labels.

Wifey bought a scented candle tonight. The warning label says, "Keep away from things that catch fire."

I kid you not.

You can once again thank pussified America for that. Our shitty legal system allows morons to sue for their lack of common sense.

Remember that stupid old whore who burned her vag with McDonalds coffee and then sued?

99% of people in this world are complete idiots, you need warning labels like that.

This country also does a very good job of spawning utter morons at an alarming rate...

+1. You have to assume that the average American is dumb. Everyone is also trying to make a quick buck nowadays by suing so it's not surprising that the companies are trying to cover their asses regardless of how moronic a label may be.

Hair Dryer: "Do not use while sleeping"
Iron: "Do not iron clothes while they are on the body"
Superman costume: "Costume is only a toy and will not allow wearer to fly"
Claymore Antipersonnel Mine: "Do Not Eat"

They seem dumb but I don't blame the companies for putting them there. Most Americans can't even find their state on a map. I literally watched my dad explain to one of his 35 year old employees why it gets dark outside with an orange and a golf ball once.

Where I completely and enthusiastically agree with the first paragraph, I feel the second is not one of those cases. Originally I thought the same until reading the case details and learning the truth.

Courts agreed. They took away some of her settlement amount because she was deemed to be like 20 percent at fault or something like that.
