Quote #68, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

I love Quotes. I love them because they make me think. What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?

Here goes blog quote #68....

"Nothing in fine print is ever good news."

-Andy Rooney-

Did you ever wonder why its called fine print? I have. And, did you ever wonder why is it so small? Shouldn't they have a warning for us? Small print included; be sure to have a magnifying glass handy.

If the print WAS SO FINE to read, as in, well, great, excellent, wouldn't they make it L A R G E R ? Why don't they just call it 'crappy' print? Ok, enough of the poor imitation of Andy Rooney.

Got to thinking though , is there any fine print that is good news out there? Perhaps there is some literature that the author is trying to keep at a one or two page max, and had to go to smaller lettters to make it fit. I'm not sure. Maybe Mr Rooney has a point here and all fine print IS bad news? Do you know any different?

That's my view.....WHAT SAY YOU?

Fine print is only good news for the entity or person behind the writing, that is, all the exclusions, provisions, etc. that protect the writer.
