Wink What? Only in California.

Quote:
KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN

WARNING! This product can expose you to chemicals including Ci(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), which are known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov.
Also listed in Spanish and Portuguese.


The product I found this in---







A Coleman 18 inch military style machete. An extremely sharp one. I needed one to chop up an invasive plant on my property here in the Villages. Worked well while I was worrying about DEHP. Much more worrisome than where that very sharp edge is at the exact moment.

According to the State of California, literally everything on earth causes cancer.

Those warnings are probably more about compliance and avoiding frivolous lawsuits than protecting the public. Everything you buy is more expensive due to the cost of compliance with idiotic government regulations.

Read labels on things we buy and amazed how stupid they think we are. Do people really put plastic bags over their heads?

Apparently they did prior to the warning label. There is no limit to people's stupidity, and the subsequent lawsuits they file bc no one warned them.

What amazed me about the machete is that there were very few warnings about it in the package. Maybe something about keeping it away from children but that is all.

Wear glasses when using and make sure other people are not around when swinging it. That is about what the box addition says.

Funny and true.

There was a line from an older N.C.I.S. show which described the pizza available in Afghanistan to the troops as tomatoe paste on cardboard.

Yesterday at a well known restaurant here a friend ordered a pizza topped with brisket which he ordered as the special of the day.

It comes with no sauce and a bit of cheese and lots of brisket slices. He liked it but said it is more like a flatbread with brisket and a bit of sauce.

Waitress said brisket pizza was not on the menu so they made it as a flatbread sandwich.
