Wrap Yourself In Asbestos

The essential LawHaHa has an entertaining poll this month relating to the sunscreen litigation (April 4, April 25):

In March, a class action was filed against the nation’s major sunscreen manufacturers alleging consumer fraud for using marketing terms such as “waterproof” and “all-day protection,” and for failing to tell consumers the sun can damage their skin and cause skin cancer even when they’re wearing sunblock. What comes as the biggest surprise to you regarding this case?

(A) That sunblock isn't really “waterproof” and doesn't really provide “all-day protection.”

(B) That any consumer would think the sun couldn’t damage their skin so long as they’re wearing sunblock.

(C) That more consumers aren’t wrapping themselves in asbestos instead of sunblock, given its unique heat-insulating properties.

(D) That would think lawyers or law students have any spare time to lie in the sun.

Go do your civic duty and vote!
