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?
"Not to be used for the other use." WTH?
IMPORTANT: This email is intended for the use of the individual
addressee(s) named above and may contain information that is
confidential, privileged or unsuitable for overly sensitive
persons with low self-esteem, no sense of humour or irrational
religious beliefs. If you are not the intended recipient, any
dissemination, distribution or copying of this email is not
authorised (either explicitly or implicitly) and constitutes an
irritating social faux pas. Unless the word absquatulation has
been used in its correct context somewhere other than in this
warning, it does not have any legal or grammatical use and may be
ignored. No animals were harmed in the transmission of this
email, although the yorkshire terrier next door is living on
borrowed time, let me tell you. Those of you with an overwhelming
fear of the unknown will be gratified to learn that there is no
hidden message revealed by reading this warning backwards, so
just ignore that Alert Notice from Microsoft: However, by pouring
a complete circle of salt around yourself and your computer you
can ensure that no harm befalls you and your pets. If you have
received this email in error, please add some nutmeg and egg
whites and place it in a warm oven for 40 minutes. Whisk briefly
and let it stand for 2 hours before icing.</pre>
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?"
A bag of peanuts with the disclaimer: "Warning - this bag may contain nuts."
Those experiencing erections lasting more than four hours should (brag to their friends) seek medical attention.
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.
:scratch: It might not be obvious to some people.
