We have officially become America. Everyone get a lawyer on retainer, we might get sued for emotionally damaging someone by being in front of them at the supermarket checkout. Don't play sport in case someone gets hurt, just sit on your arse at home until you're fat enough to sue McDonalds. Hell, they could at least have made this a bit more Australian - make it "six and out".
