Brilliant Belinda, these are so funny šŸ˜ƒ Thanks for cheering up my Saturday night

Thank a lawyer for the need for these silly disclaimers.

Normally I would agree, but in these cases, don't blame the lawyer but the stupid person(s) who had absolutely no sense!

Is it okay to stop the chain with my foot?

And, uhm, what if my toilet is next to a power line?

Instructions with my hairdryer say don't use it in the bathtub. Guess I've been extremely lucky up till now.
