    Right, NonSequitur. I would add a third thing, or add to first. Make him/her pay all legal costs including any costs of the defendant.

    Any of Tescos various packets of nuts - "warning - may contain nuts"

    Things are bad when you have to state the obvious to avoid a lawsuite. What ever happened to good old common sense?

    Some of my favorites:

    On a life saving device:
    "This is NOT a life saving device!!" (Well, that is kind of confusing)

    On a child-sized Superman costume:
    "Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly." (You hear that Splunge?)

    On a pack of Carefree Gum:
    "Use of this product may be hazardous to your health. This product contains Saccharin, which has been determined to cause cancer in laboratory animals." (Yeah, that's Carefree alright)

    :lol:

    He has a bit of a point there. I do believe that businesses which rely on human stupidity or low drives (most sorts of gambling, porn business, drugs etc) take a lot of culpability on themselves.

    Again, someone who borrows millions of dollars just to wager them clearly has a problem.

    Perhaps I'm biased. I just happen to know three people from different families whose ancestors lost estates in cards.
