With only three days left until the big feast, we’re happy to see that our Thanksgiving guest waiver is making the rounds. As one columnist wrote today, those behind all the fuss about “turkey genocides” and "Turkey Day diets" just don’t get it:“The whole point of the holiday is to do that which is unsustainable.” So to protect you and your celebration from the anti-Thanksgiving crowd, we’ve been circulating our Guest Liability and Indemnification Agreement. Here’s a sampling of some media reactions:
Thanksgiving offers up so many memories for us. Grandma’s cloverleaf rolls, Mom’s special sweet potatoes, Uncle Ron’s lawsuit…Just in time for the holiday, The Center for Consumer Freedom has sent out its “Thanksgiving Liability and Indemnification Agreement” because no one wants a lawsuit with their stuffing.[The Walla Walla Union-Bulletin]
This story calls to mind the scene from “Christmas Vacation” in which the family discovers that sweet Aunt Bethany has enhanced her Jell-O mold with cat food…From New York to California, cities across the country are forcing restaurants to label their menus with nutritional information. Mom’s Thanksgiving dinner table could be next. [ The Frederick News Post]
The waiver, a tongue-in-cheek counterpoint to the obesity-related lawsuits popping up across the nation, is the latest salvo from the center…Of course, no one would actually suggest that failure to provide a Tofurky would be a reason to sue, as the waiver implies. [Los Angeles Times]
The LA Times clearly doesn’t follow the animal rights movement very closely. They’ll even sue from prison.
