More Warning Signs!

“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”

.

Today another selection of warnings signs and labels that were clearly either written for idiots or written by idiots. Perhaps a combination of both!

Don’t try to figure out why they wrote these things or you might hurt yourself.

Just enjoy.

    • Thanks. I agree with what you say. If you are interested, the whole hot is hot warnings stem from a law case from the mid 1990s, Liebeck v. McDonald’s Restaurants, when a panel of idiot jurists in New Mexico awarded a stupid woman who spilled hot coffee on herself $2.86 million. The trial judge who was a slightly lesser idiot reduced the final verdict to $640,000, and the parties settled for a confidential amount before an appeal was decided. Unfortunately we’re still stuck with the warning signs in case there are more stupid jurists out there and I’m sure there are.
