A sharp reminder — 13 Comments

  1. I’ve been saying this for years. We have public health telling us every week that this is bad your health, that is bad for your health. Bacon causes cancer, insufficiently cooked meat give you food poisoning. Stay out of the heat of sun because that gives you cancer etc etc etc

    Given all this stuff we are apparently too stupid to know for ourselves (and our ability to smell quality bullshit when we see it), then how the fuck did the human race ever evolve to it’s current state ?   I mean how could we have survived the industrial revolution, the plague, countless wars and so on without the guidance and advice of ‘public health’. We should have been extinct thousands of years ago, instead of the Neanderthals.

    Come to think of it, that answers a few questions. The Neanderthals didn’t die out. They evolved into Public Health officials and worse ….. POLITICIANS !!

    No wonder we are so fucked !!

  2. I smell a scam or is that a scheme (a secret or underhanded plan; plot) to justify their existence and of course the money paid to perpetrate said scam/scheme, just saying.

    • It just seems to be the thing to do these days.  I trip over a loose paving slab and immediately start a campaign to have all paving slabs clearly marked “this slab may be loose”.  It’s bad enough that idiots need warnings, but even worse that there are people out there who think we need warnings.

  3. It’d be funny, if it wasn’t so depressing. (Perhaps only accredited chefs should have access to sharp knives? On the other hand, chefs are known to cut themselves.)

    • Maybe they’ll introduce a kitchen test which you have to pass before getting a cutting licence?

  4. Simple solution buy stainless gloves, they dont cost that much cheaper than stitches, everybody will cut thereselves one time

    • An even simpler solution – let ’em bleed.  I have sliced myself far too many times to count and have the scars to prove it.  But of course the poor little snowflakes have to rush to their nearest ER demanding urgent attention for a little cut.

    • Now I never would have worked that out for myself.

      Personally I would be worried by that warning…. MAY get hot?  I would prefer one that said “WILL get hot”.  More reliable sounding?

  5. I knew society was headed down the toilet when I first saw a warning on a paper wrapped single toothpick saying: “Do not stick sharp end into gum line”. When people need warnings about not poking holes into their gums with toothpicks then I think it’s time for me to go back to sea on a submarine and stay there. As far as I know there’s no nanny state underwater.

    • My favourite is the notice on a packet of peanuts:

      “WARNING – This packet may contain nuts”.
