    As a new parent, you’ve no doubt discovered that children’s products have particularly insane disclaimers. My daughter loved her ExerSaucer (http://tinyurl.com/69sop) which had the following warnings printed on the side:

    – Product does not float. Do not use in pool
    – Do not use as a sled.

    This was a few years ago. I’m sure by now there’s an admonition not to tie it to a car and drive on the freeway.
