Warning Label Madness

by Diane

Winners of M-Law’s seventh annual Wacky Warning Labels contest are here.

Among past years’ winners, this one has a certain Zen quality:

“A warning on a pair of shin guards manufactured for bicyclists says: ‘Shin pads cannot protect any part of the body they do not cover.'”

…See also their Loony Lawsuits page. A typical entry: “ARSONISTS SUE FOR INSURANCE BENEFITS AFTER BEING DENIED COVERAGE FOR DAMAGES THEY CAUSED TO NEIGHBORING BUILDING.” (This sounds perilously close to one of those classic definitions of the word chutzpah, if you ask me.)
