Warning warning!

Danger Will Smith!

I know, I'm dating myself once again. I could not help it after reading the 11th annual Wacky Warning Label Contest.

It is conducted by Michigan Lawsuit Abuse Watch, M-LAW, to reveal how lawsuits, and fear of lawsuits, have driven the proliferation of common-sense warnings on products.

The winning label for this year is..... Drum roll please...........

A label on a small tractor that warns, "Danger: Avoid Death". If you go to the link above it has a picture of the label.

Someone should inform this manufacturer that death is unavoidable. All living things eventually die. It is just the way things work.

Do you remember what pretty much started all of this? Of course you do... Liebeck v. McDonald's Restaurants Probably the most expensive cup of coffee ever served....
