"WARNING: MAY CONTAIN PEANUTS."

............

NO SH*T, REALLY? I MEAN IF THEY HADN'T TOLD ME I MAY NEVER HAVE KNOWN!

I know it's a disclaimer cause some people are allergic to peanuts but give me a f***ing break. You have GOT to be kidding. Who would have known that peanuts may contain peanuts.

Where's that large 3D rolleyes smiley that's animated and everything, I need one of those right now.

No, it's for people who are blind and can't read the label.

It's for people with mild allergies who will eat the peanuts, throw up, and then sue the peanut company, unless they put that disclaimer on there. Sooner or later we will have to label chairs "Warning, tilting this chair back poses a risk to your health".

I mean, if you can sue tobacco companies claiming that you didn't know that breathing a load of poisonous fumes down your lungs was bad for you, and win, we've proved that you can sue for anything.

see, if you would have been wearing your sign, I could have warned you. I could have said...that's goin be hot!


My new knife (from wal mart ) comes with a warning that says improper use may result in injury or death.

Thanks Deathmaker that's exactly what I was looking for here.

I mean come on, how far does this have to go. If you're allergic to peanuts, then don't eat em. Why does a package of peanuts of all things need this warning? I would ask "how stupid can people be" but I think I already have my answer. Geeez.

Does it actually say "MAY" contain peanuts?
I mean, I would be pretty pissed if I bought a package of peanuts and it didn't contain any peanuts.

It's an inside joke in the peanut industry.
