Just A Hint Of Irony

I’m going to tip-toe here as I do not want to offend a guy I consider a “Blogging Buddy”

One who is a  member of the esteemed 25 Blogs Guaranteed to Make You Smarter.

A gentleman who I trust has a keen and forgiving sense of humor and who I know practices in a  category of law distant from what I reference below.

Each morning, I read his blog. . . Future Lawyer .   I’m not a lawyer, but it is an entertaining blog.

This morning, he posted an article titled  Long John Silver’s Cares About Its Customers. Albeit short, I think it is safe to say he poked fun at them for the sign.

I will admit that I do not recall ever being in a Long John Silver’s so I can’t vouch for the authenticity of said sign.

The irony, at least as I see it, is that signs like that have become necessary since the world is home to a plethora of people who just aren’t thinking and/or paying attention.  Fortunately for them, there is a reserve of attorneys who make a living filing lawsuits that result in companies having to post signs like this…. or that the hot coffee that you just purchased in McDonald’s might just be hot.

I m digressing a bit, but there is a TV commercial for some drug that I can’t recall the name of, but lets call it Placebo A.  After spouting all the benefits of Placebo A, the announcer goes into the warnings, which start with “Don’t take Placebo A if you are allergic to Placebo A.”   It had to be some corporate attorney that made them put that in there.

So, I could not let this pass me by without hinting at the irony.

With apologies to Rick Georges.

    This is too funny! Reminds me of a warning on a blow dryer for hair “Do not use in the shower.”

        Thanks. 😊

        I don’t know why your comments are bounce. There are times the like button is there, and then it’s not. I wish they would stop trying to deliver “new and improved” ways to publish.


  2. One has to wonder if we are getting dumber as time goes by or are companies just trying to cover their a%%es from lawsuits.

    having never eaten anything at Long John Silver’s, and so having no idea what their menu consists of (is it a burger joint, a chicken joint, a fish joint?), I would be happy to see such a sign if I had a fish allergy… I’d turn right around and go somewhere else…

  4. This made me laugh because it is plain stupidity….that being said….Long John Silver is one of my husband’s favorite places to eat…Oh and they also serve chicken. And they do have kind of amazing hush puppies. (none of which is probably healthy at all)
