What should the CPSC ban next? Part 5

  • October 11, 2012

Ban Stairs!

The CPSC is alleging that warnings on packages don’t work. We disagree.

But by their logic, all kinds of things should be banned. What should they strike next?

What’s soft and comfy and hazardous all over? Your bed! It’s hard to believe that everyone’s favorite crash-pad is just that –a crash pad. Every year 1.8 million people are rushed to the emergency room from falling out of bed. How can something so cozy and delightful furnish so many deaths and injuries?

Is trying to ban beds unthinkable? Obviously! It’s what the CPSC does best!
