IN 2011"THE MAN" STILL THINKS YOUR BUTT DUMB…AND I HAVE PROOF.


The clock barely started ticking off the New Year and already I discovered evidence that “the man” still thinks we are nothing more than chimps paying money to push “happy brand” buttons.

THE WHEN:
It’s New Year’s day, 1:06am. I’m at a hotel. I’m also still 40. So let’s just say the night already ended early-ish for me. I’m in my PJs (thong and body stocking) trying to manage walking a straight line to the hotel soda machine on my floor.


THE WHAT:
As I pop in my quarters and wait (in Pavlovian fashion) to receive my caffeine-laced nourishment, this lovely soda sign catches my blurred vision.


SO HERE'S MY QUESTION TO ALL YOU CHIMPS OUT THERE:
Which do you think is more demeaning? The lovely "duh" diagram? Or the adding of “death” to the warning?


BEFORE YOU ANSWER...THE MAN MIGHT BE RIGHT:
For shits and giggles, I surfed the net to find out if there was actually a need for that sign to  be there. Sadly the answer is “YES.” Click here to read about a 1998 tragedy that could’ve have been averted if the above vital communication had been affixed to the soda machine (“pop” to all my friends that reside in the red states).

  1. Did you notice that that the little stick guy under the machine was sporting a "thong and body stocking?"

  2. Thong and body stocking...now that's a look! Work it! Whoot whoot! Regarding the message on the vending machine, whenever you see a warning placed on something it's because someone got their pants (err...thong) sued off them.

  3. it really doesn't need to be there. people just need to have more common sense. we may as well start labelling everything as a hazard. toasters, fridges, etc. we don't need it, or perhaps we do just for the small majority of people that don't think twice.

  5. It is always amazing the amount of signs/warnings we have today because some lawyer has filed and won a law suit over someone's stupidity.

  6. Thanks to you blue staters, we are surrounded by warning labels, regulations, and general dumassness every time we turn around. Goddamn democrats.

  7. These are the same people who needed "contents are hot" printed on cups of coffee.

  8. The more important sticker is the one that shows the dude with his arm up the machine. If you line the stickers up together, it's basically demonstrating you should not have sex with the Coke machine or let the Coke machine have sex with you.

  9. They can call this autoerotic asphyxia.

  10. Copy Boy...It's still a pretty big assumption on the part of 'the man' because most likely anyone dumb enough to shake and tip a vending machine probably doesn't know how to read anyway. Picture is too vague for a moron. This is too funny! Love it. BB

  11. what is scary is that someone had to have done this to warrant the warning and even more scary is that someone will still do it gain..

  14. Yes, the hair dryer warning label came to mind. So did the Prep. H 'do not ingest' warning.

  18. Lol I use to remember when I was in high school...kids use to shake the vending machine all the time. I never heard of anyone dieing in my school and It's good nothing happened bad! Later that year they made an anti-theft barrier maybe because of this reason
