You don't say?

I was making a package of Cashew Chicken for dinner tonight.  Inside the package was a small packet made of clear plastic, so you can clearly see the contents, cashews.  Printed in half-inch high letters all over the packet is the warning:  "Contains Cashews".

Duh?

Someplace, somewhere, sometime, someone, sued and won, and now packets of cashews must have the contents clearly labeled, the fact the plastic is clear doesn't matter.

-or-

The people at the factory are so brain dead that if the packet doesn't say clearly what the contents are you get a bag of lima beans.

-or-

Someplace, somewhere, sometime, someone, thought this would be really funny, and you got it! Maybe even they will stumble across this post and their life will be complete.

I myself find it highly entertaining =)

The world has too many lawyers, and too many people ready to file lawsuits over their own stupidity.

I've seen containers of cream with warnings on them stating that they "contain milk."

The ultimate stupidity was a case of dry roasted peanuts, clearly labeled as such, over which several red warning labels were plastered: "WARNING! May contain peanuts."
