For the same reason that blowdryers have the warning, "Do not use in water." Yes, people can be that stupid.


She won over one million u.s. dollars from what should have been dismissed as a frivolous lawsuit.


I've read that that woman won her suit because a) McDonald's coffee was being kept hotter than normal, and b) it had caused serious burns before, and nothing was done to remedy the situation. One has to bear in mind that drinking hot coffee is one thing, spilling it down your inner thighs is quite another.

Unfortunately (or fortunately, somtimes I guess) the law favours the stupid. Putting the warning on the box is no protection agains a lawsuit as it assumes that the person can read (or read english) so the disclaimers on the commercials are getting longer and longer (and faster too)

The worst one I saw was a warning that a sleeping pill "may cause drowsiness"
