Christmas Warnings

We will be very safe this Christmas, or at least if we are killed or injured the products that have played a part in our demise will be off the hook legally (if not morally). Please heed with us the following Christmas warnings:

  • Do not set your new cell phone battery on fire and stand close to it while it burns. (Nokia)
  • Do not eat scented tealight candles or put them in front of a rocking chair (Ikea)
  • Do not use dvd player case as a swing, carseat, or for any other purpose than to hold the dvd player. (Polaroid)
  • Do not let children under three eat jigsaw puzzle pieces. (Great American Puzzle Factory)
  • May contain peanuts or traces of peanuts - on a jar of peanuts.
And best of all:

  • When the candles are lit for "Silent Night," please be careful not to drip wax or light people near you on fire. (St. Andrew's United Church Christmas Eve Service Bulletin)
Have a happy (and safe Christmas). You have now been protected, or at least warned.

question: when did risk management cross the line into the realm of the absurd?

my middle child is 4 -- does that mean that she can go ahead and eat the jigsaw puzzle pieces?

Well, at least they do not contain peanuts or traces of peanuts.
