I wonder if I could sue the condom company...I bought one, laid it beside the bed during sex...and my wife still got pregnant.
I'm not sure you would win that one...the put "application instructions" on the box...then again, now, if you can't read you may have a case with the added bonus of them discriminating against you being illiterate by not having pictures.

I know this is all common sense, but it wouldn't hurt to put labels on the food. Basically, if it tastes good, it's probably not good for you.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that if you eat enough of that fast food, it is bound to catch up to you. The same goes for smoking, drinking, and doing drugs (just to name a few).
It will be interesting (for lack of a better work) to see if the suit is thrown out!!!!

I wish people stop blaming large corporations for making them fat, killing their lungs, and making their kids like violence. It boils down to you having a free mind to make choices. Its is bad enough they clog their arteries and tax their pancrease but to clog up our judicial system with this rubbish makes me sick. I wish I could be the judge who has to sit and hear that crap I would humiliate them to the max. That is why I can't stand doing med/surg half the people that are admitted there is because they refuse to stop killing their bodies w/ cigarettes or saturated fat. You get what you put out. Pitiful......

Perhaps we should revoke driving and voters' priveleges. Because if they are too stupid to know what they put in their bodies, and the potential for harm of eating fast food 4 to 5 times a week, then they are *FAR* too mentally-challenged to DRIVE among us and VOTE in our future leaders. We need to protect these stupid idiots from themselves and the general public, if they are indeed that inept that they cannot control their own diets as adults! REALLY, were I the judge, this is what I would decree as I threw them the *&%$ out of my courtroom! SHEESH!
