Prats of The Week - Eggcellent!

Prats of The WeekTime for another of my prestigious and internationally renowned "Prats of The Week" Award.

This week it goes to the good people of "The Happy Egg Company", who sell eggs.

Can you guess what they have done children?

Yes, that's right, they have printed on their egg boxes (which have their name, a picture of an egg and a cartoon chicken) the following wording:

"allergy advice: contains egg" (inside the lid of the boxes).

Now, aside from the bleeding obvious nature of the contents of the boxes from the outside labelling, by printing it on the inside were anyone with an egg allergy moronic enough to buy this product they would become aware of said contents when they opened the box anyway (observing that it contained eggs).

However, as if that were not enough evidence to show that this company is run by simpletons, there is one additional factoid that I need to convey to you.

The company has not printed the warning in its boxes of ten eggs!

The Happy Egg Company, well deserving Prats of The Week.

  1. Some people employed by such companies manage to take stupidity to the next level!!

    Sadly though, in our current "sue 'em" culture, if they hadn't put such an obvious warning on their product and some idiot had a reaction to it, the so called victim would have got loadsamoney from the company.

    What these people that sue at a drop of a hat don't realise is that although they may get a couple of quid compo, the lawyers will make alot more....In the end, these ambulance chasers and the chavs that use them, cost us all dear, in terms of higher insurance costs and in terms of mental health, by us having to put up with silly things, such as the aforementioned warning on the box of eggs.

  2. Sir Tonk sayeth:

    '... In the end, these ambulance chasers and the chavs that use them, cost us all dear, in terms of higher insurance costs and in terms of mental health, by us having to put up with silly things, such as the aforementioned warning on the box of eggs. ...'

    Precisely, which is why I hereby propose that a warning be printed on every Nowinnofee Lawist, on their firms, on their pets and on their pet's pet's pets:

    Warning, may contain bullets, knives, poison and traces of blunt instruments. Produced under conditions free from morals, principles or standards.

    Ambulances should be fitted (no sexual pun intended) with rear gunners.

    The sooner we stamp out these ratty little trilby-wearing internet-degree brandishing fleabags the better.

    Other than that I have no strong opinions on the importation of American litigious culture and the organisms that feed upon it.

    p.s., I believe that even the Americans don't like it, they're just too far gone for treatment.

    Bear in mind though, when Tesco printed "Warning, contains nuts" on bags of peanuts they were reputed to be taking the piss.

    Perhaps the Happy Egg Co. are doing the same.

  6. What's "happy" about them? Are their chickens raised in unusually humane circumstances? [Remember "Carnation milk from contented cows"?]

    Anyhow, this lot have egg on their faces.

  7. In a similar vein, Asda are apparently printing "Contains Milk" on the side of their...wait for it...milk cartons.

    Wonder if a certain well known pie manufacturer will start printing "May contain cows arse, eyeball and lips" on their pies ?

    There's always the possibility that the message has been mandated by some government regulation and the poor company is forced to print it knowing full well how daft it is.

    Maybe that's why it is printed on the inside. Surely if you wanted to warn people before they buy you would print it on the outside.

    I was speaking to the proprietor of my local chip shop about crazy legislation, when he said "let me show you something", and went into the store room. He brought out a large cardboard box from the freezer. The label said "Plaice Fillets, Net weight 5kg", and the suppliers details.

    The last line read "Allergy Advice - contains fish".......

  10. eggboxes have had this warning for some years. Also on the inside. I have pictures to prove the age and a more recent box on my desk as I type.

    Maybe the eggs are from the same source.

    I also have some photos of an own brand jar of mustard that has a warning that it contains mustard.

    I suspect that this happens as some IT glitch where certain boxes in a database have to be filled in and are then selected for printing automatically.

    If not that then I hope it is humour at Nanny's expense.

    Not sure what to think about the warnings on packets of peanuts though.
