Bring the Figgy Pudding, But Only After You Sign The Waiver

The UK Independent reports that High Timber, a London restaurant, is asking diners to sign a waiver before serving the traditional Christmas pudding, which can contain - if you are lucky - a small silver charm.   The waiver provides, "I absolve entirely High Timber from all blame or liability should I come to any harm including, but not limited to, a chipped tooth, or any injury as a result of swallowing it."  Unsurprisingly, the waiver was suggested by some restaurant customers who also happen to be lawyers.

Thanks to Tony Sebok for passing on this story.
