Thanksgiving Liability Waiver
This Thanksgiving as you stuff the bird, stuff yourself, and tell your Uncle Harry to stuff it, don’t forget to pass the “Thanksgiving Obesity Liability Waiver” around the table before the desert passes anyones’ lips. This “tongue in cheek” document is the creation of the Center For Consumer Freedom, and is they’re humorous attempt to offer people protection from the litigious instincts of annoying relatives or dinner guests who decide that they feel a bit overfull, or that your chosen holiday foods and beverages might be considered calorie loaded health bombs. The waiver is full of convincing legal jargon, such as herebys and hereinafters. And while the final paragraph on the document states that the ‘signee’ is “doing so freely and voluntarily without inducement or a sense of humor”, I rather doubt that anyone could sign such an agreement without a least a slight chuckle. Then again, your guests may take the “Thanksgiving Obesity Liability Waiver” in all seriousness. In that case you had better make sure a notary is included on your guest list. That way there’ll be no chance of anyone claiming you failed to warn them that eating too much could lead to bloating and possible weight gain.
