Typically the articles on Nexreg News tend to be on the serious side, but for a change we thought we’d post something a little lighter. The Heartland institute has a funny piece about warning labels:
Michigan Lawsuit Abuse Watch (M-LAW) conducts an annual “World’s Wackiest Warning Label Contest,” and many of the winning labels are highly amusing, as noted below.
But the proliferation of warning labels is no laughing matter, said M-LAW President Robert B. Dorigo. “Warning labels are a sign of our lawsuit-plagued times,” he said. “From the moment we raise our head in the morning off pillows that bear those famous ‘Do Not Remove’ warnings, to when we drop back in bed at night, we are overwhelmed with warnings. Plaintiffs’ lawyers who file the lawsuits that prompt these warnings argue they are making us safer, but the warnings have become so long that few of us read them anymore–even the ones we should read.”
