View Full Version : Stunt Baby on Closed Course

OK, here's a pet peeve: safety disclaimers. You know the type...every car ad on TV that dares to show acceleration, confident driving on twisting roads, etc., carries with it the dumb disclaimer, "stunt professional on closed course, do not attempt" or some such lunacy. Had enough of this tripe (the disclaimers, that is, not this thread)?

Or better still, why doesn't somebody drop an H-bomb on:

Kellogg's Frosted Flakes (of corn).
Corn Pops cereal.

...and bring back Tony the Tiger's Sugar Frosted Flakes (of who cares what) and Sugar Bear's Sugar Pops.

And how about an MX missile aimed at:

"Some assembly required."
"Your mileage may vary."
"Medication X is not for everybody, particularly if you have rash, diabetes, history of heart defects, mental impairment, etc etc etc. See your doctor before using Medication X."

...and the all-time stomach-churning bromide to force you to drive the porcelain bus:

"This ad paid for by the Committee to Elect Chuck Windbag."
