-- coach Carter earlier it says caution this product moves when use.
So how stupid thing.
I'm -- company.
Put that label its product.
Because they think it might protect them who knows -- well.
Labels don't increase prices that much but what galls me is that contrary to what the lawyers say the worry is rarely make us safer because now.
There are so many warnings and so many things few people read any of studies showing their lots of warnings people are less likely to read the ones that matter like the one -- and microwave popcorn that tell as you don't open the bag I think that's you might get hurt.
But who reads labels anymore.
Well thirteen years ago Bob to -- go Jones started the contest where consumers pick the stupidest warning labels out there is written a book called.

Thermometer that says warning do not use orally after using rectal -- A fishing lure.
Big big four -- fishing lure with prongs hanging off the end it's very -- look at one that says warning harmful if swallowed.
So some company feels the need some lawyer has advised him better put -- on the label if you make a product in America today you constantly looking over your short for the next lawsuit because you've heard about the lawsuits.
For example fellows playing basketball dunked the ball somehow managed to catch his teeth in the net and he sued the -- maker.
Claiming that they were responsible for the damage to his teeth he walked away with 50000 dollars.
And that maker probably spent 200000 that -- I guess they should have had a breakaway next.
This year -- decided to let our studio audience you pick the 2010 winter.
A hundred people made suggestions Bob pick his top five and now all you get to vote -- get a thousand bucks to the person who suggested the label that.
You pick so give us the senators contestants okay well how boat they we'll start with this -- this is -- Bluetooth headset.
Put these but the warning label says warning and had set the covers -- -- will impair your ability to hear other sounds.
I think we have five here pick your favorite he's -- pair of swim goggles they're made with an elastic band because we're supposed to fit snugly -- had.
The warning label says do not pull goggles away from face is and they snapped back because injury.
Well they might but the here's a bottle want -- UK -- -- should be tied exactly.
Piglet blast is a swine -- supplement okay vitamins for page -- vitamins for pigs.
But the warning label says no matter how hungry you get lawyer on on the farm for animal use only.
It doesn't say how no matter how hungry just says or a new effort -- -- -- death -- is something thank you thank you to -- Clinton yes -- gets sued.
This is a wonderful product we've talked about a lot about safety -- driving with cell phones and using cellphones well this is a product made two.

What does a drive and talk speakerphone say warning do not use while driving.
And the last candidate he remembers might go Kart which says caution.
This -- that moves when you this result.
The votes let's try.

No votes for -- -- It's keeping you into a guy -- is the Bluetooth headset awards pets at the covers both ears will impair your ability to -- -- sounds.
Couple votes -- both the swim goggles says do not -- goggles away from face as they may snap back and cause injury.
And in -- for that raise your hands if that's your -- couple bullets for that.
Through the ones who got the biggest response to -- earlier when we thought this is they drive and talk speakerphone.
Anybody who think that the driver touch speakerphone -- the warns do not use while driving is the funniest.

And lastly the wonderful -- gold card that says warning this product moves when used.
OK I think guys we have we're a letter winner so as we do a thousand dollars goes to the guy who brought the sin and that is going to be Courtney pike from Bay City, Michigan.
