You wouldn’t think you’d have to, but …


No DogsYou wouldn’t think you’d have to …

have a law making seatbelt use mandatory

have a “Caution:Contents Hot” warning on a product called Hot Apple Pie

have a law banning the reading and writing of texts while driving

have a sign indicating guide dogs are allowed

have a sign in the bathroom informing the staff they must wash their hands; to say nothing of the “Flush after use” sign

explain to an adult cyclist why it’s a bad idea to ride on the sidewalk

Wash_Handshave small print that says “don’t attempt” on an ad featuring a man apparently asleep on a riding mower cutting through a hedge and flower bed

inform viewers to consult a doctor if “unusual bleeding occurs while taking this drug”

tell people who suffer spring flooding that it happens annually, and they might want to move

tell a man that there might be a medical problem if his erection lasts more than four hours; no matter what his wife, girlfriend and neighbour’s wife might say

tell people not to put a cotton swab into their ear, even if you sell them for that purpose

…but you do.
