So, according to this you simply must divide, crush, chew or dissolve your Sudafed. This can’t be safely left to people’s common sense to see through the idiocy, and behave responsibly. Consider how stupid the average person is, and then realise that 50% of people are even more stupid than that!

You have to ask yourself how and why this error managed to creep into the public domain. Never mind the slipshod copy-editing. Surely they had standardised boilerplate text which could simply be cut’n’pasted onto each batch. Clearly not in this case, though, with the inevitable consequence of cost, supply problems, inconvenience, corporate embarrassment – and providing me with a cheap and easy laugh at their expense on a cold, wet Friday. Have a great weekend, everyone.
