Shaming the Irish again — 7 Comments

  1. Well, here in the states they have long required separation of alcohol products and later, list of ingredients, etc. I’ll have to check whatever bottles we might have (only for cooking mind you) for any warnings and such but I can pretty much guarantee you that whatever warnings they might have causing cancer isn’t one of them.

  2. Well, there’s some room left to top of the list Finland … but you’ll get there, I guess …
    You have my sympathy.

  3. Here in Pa. we have to go to a “State Store” to buy liquor or wine and a Beer Distributor to buy beer by the case or keg. Over the past few years they have attempted to come to a modern state. In the past few years a few supermarkets and convienience stores can sell beer buy the bottle or six pack but the beer is strictly separated from the rest of the store.

  4. The next logical step in this progression is that hamburger packages contain a warning label about the dangers of E. coli, pork products (such as bacon contain warnings of cancer), poultry with warning labels of salmonella and campylobacter. Fresh, unwashed vegetables (bagged or loose) contain warnings of E. coli, salmonella, etc. Oysters have warning labels for Hepatitis A and Vibriosis (for raw consumption). I could go on and on.

    Everything that we do, eat, consume every day comes with some potential hazards. Next thing you know they’ll be warning men over 45 that sex could cause heart attacks.

    Whatever happened to personal responsibility? It’s madness!!

  5. Imagine a world where there are mandatory stickers throughout the house – over power sockets, on panes of glass, on microwave ovens, on stairs and of course a six foot high warning on the door to that chamber of horrors – the tool shed. There will also have to be warnings at five foot intervals along every pavement warning pedestrians that moving cars are lethal and their fumes cause cancer.

    Personal responsibility? What’s that?

  6. “Personal responsibility? What’s that?”

    That went out with “Common courtesy” and “Benefit of the doubt”.

    • And innocent until proven guilty and the right to remain silent ,without it inferring guilt. On and on we go,I need a drink , oh wait.
