Serving suggestion
delirium pissed off

I was eating some cheese just now -- Sainsbury's Somerset goat's cheese, as it happens -- when I chanced to look upon its packaging. Upon this packagaing was a picture of a piece of cheese lying on a table, cut into by a knife, with a small corner of what was probably a piece of bread just visible next to it. Naturally, this also comes with the disclaimer "serving suggestion" just in case any of us thought that the little piece of cheese no more than about 5cm in any direction and in mostly-transparent packaging actually contained a table as well.

That type of warning makes me want to tear my hair out. I feel sorely tempted to boycott anything which carries utterly ridiculous warnings, from now on. Salted peanuts saying "warning: may contain nuts" are right out, as are anything which "may be hot when heated". Of course, I'm going to have to resist the temptation, in this case, seeing as how the only other alternative is probably to starve.

susanthescribe summed up my feelings on this perfectly years ago when she said, "the problem with common sense is that it's not very common".

To which I add that it is becoming less and less common the worse the nanny state and the ability to sue over personal stupidity becomes. /minirant
