Disclaimers. Peter Shank barely has a website, but it has one of the most extensive collections of disclaimers I've ever come across.

No animals were harmed in the production of this file.
All models over 18 years of age.
If condition persists, consult your physician.
Freshest if consumed before date on carton.
Prices subject to change without notice.
Times approximate.
No postage necessary if mailed in Singapore.
If swallowed, do not induce vomiting.

I bet if we add up all the disclaimers and qualifiers out in the world we would find that no one ever actually says anything.

Cynical? Me? No...

Check out Dean Paxton's disclaimer... it's much more impressive

How funny, this is an old text file from back in the bbs days. Lots of people have them.

The gauntlet has been flung down, and Shank will not be out-disclaimed. I shall build the disclaimer site for the new millenium. And I'll remove all those pesky prohibitions, instructions, and notices that are masquerading as disclaimers. But not during finals week. Posters, you're now on my List. I'll be in touch.
