Default Food Allergy Warnings

This is just going too far:

Ingredients: Milk

Allergy Warning: Contains MILK

And on my jug of CostCo Cashews:

"Ingredients: Cashews, Peanut Oil, Salt"

On another part of the label:
"Warning: Contents processed on equipment that also processes nuts"

And on yet another part of the label:
"Consumers should read all allergy warnings carefully"

Why not just read the damn ingredients and be done with it? If they can't
read the ingredients, then they can't read any of the warnings warning you
to read the warnings about the ingredients.

Same reason I guess is that when they advertise plastic wrap it's described
as "see-through" instead of "transparent". They assume we're not smart
enough to figure out a big long word like "transparent"!

We are warned not to "iron while wearing". As if anyone would actually put
a hot iron against their body to press a shirt. Oh, and with hair dryers,
"do not use in the shower". It's the frivilous lawsuits that caused these
these silly warnings. Plastic bags from the dry cleaner "are not toys".
When did anyone think they were?

A local supermarket carries prepacked broccoli (packed in the US) that is
clearly labelled, in big letters *"Broccoli"* In the fine print underneath
it says: "May contain broccoli".
I kid you not!

This and some of the other examples may represent
the sense of humor of the graphic designer who designed
the package. Those designers a crazy bunch. :-)

Or as seen on a jar of *honey* mustard (mustard, vinegar, honey and
salt): 'No sugars. No sweeteners.'
Oh really?

"are not toys". When did anyone think they were?


Well, my dad did, once.

He was trying to make a home-made hot air balloon but every bag he tried
was too heavy for the very minimal lift provided by a household candle.
So it occurred to him that the extremely lightweight plastic of a
drycleaner's bag might be just the ticket.

And it actually worked pretty well, at first. The American Cleaners
blimp got airborn, made it about 50 feet up looking like some sort of
aerial man o'war, then descended gently onto the neighbors roof, where
the candle tipped over but continued to burn.

Dad had to scramble to grab a ladder from the garage so he could climb
up there and put it out, then he had to explain to Ray Sarzinski what he
was doing on his roof. Fortunately, Ray was familiar with my dad's
experiments and a frequent accomplice, especially for the ones that went
"bang" - the miniature cannon springs to mind (important safety note -
when firing a cannon, miniature or otherwise, either secure it to
something extremely heavy and immobile, or get the hell out from behind
the thing as the recoil is wicked).

So Ray was cool about it, but disappointed that the flight could not be
repeated for his edification as the candle had melted a hole in the bag.
