What is your favorite disclaimer in commercials or on products?

We all know about the frivolous lawsuits that have been won in this country, such as the McDonald's coffee being served hot and it has caused a bunch of warning tags and small print. What is your favorite?


My new favorite is in a GMC commercial. The commercial starts off with GMC talking about their engineers seeking out technology that can give their SUV's improved control. While they are talking about this they show a red headed lady with a pen in pad in hand (supposed to be an engineer) observing a bullet train as it passes. While this is happening the small print on the bottom of the screen appears with this disclaimer: Always keep a safe distance when around trains or railroad tracks.

So what is your favorite?

I love all of the medicine commercials...you know, when they talk as fast as they can for 15 seconds detailing all of the problems that this medicine can cause.

After one of those commercials, my daughter turned to me and asked, "So, is it safe to take?"

The Ruffles Brand chips cooded with Olean used to have a warning at the bottom saying that excessive consumption of food products containing Olean can cause discomfort and anal leakage.
