Don’t say I didn’t warn you

Before you read this article, please read the fine print.
Well, there really isn’t any fine print. That is to say, the print is fine (whereas the content is as always questionable), but I have no way to reduce the font size. If that were possible, I could get away with saying lots of things that would otherwise place me in serious legal jeopardy.
Maybe what I need is a disclaimer like the ones you see on the bottom of your TV screen during commercials.
For instance, have you ever seen the insurance commercial where the guy uses a flamethrower to torch a twelve-foot ball of paper? A disclaimer appears on the bottom of the screen, “Don’t try this at home.”
Wouldn’t you know it?  I just happen to have a 12-foot ball of paper that I wanted to immolate!
Commercial disclaimers are amazing things and, if you read them, you’ll find all sort of interesting statements being made by the sellers.
Ah, but the key word here is “if.”  Even on an 80-inch screen, it’s almost impossible to read these things.  In the old days, we used to call that font “microfiche.”
It’s bad enough that you can barely read these disclaimers, but reading them can be just as irritating.
