Warning Labels



Warning Labels of the Day: Bewildered by the British government’s insistence on slapping warning labels on “any content that involves sex, violence or strong language” but not on sloppy journalism or specious arguments, Geek comedian Tom Scott decided to proactively create a newspaper warning label set himself, and has been spending his days putting them on free papers he finds on the London Underground. If you want to make your own, Tom has helpfully provided a PDF template for Avery’s Letter-size 5160 labels or equivalent. (A4 13 x 5 sheet template also available.) [notcot.]
