Or is the lesson, "Never underestimate the temperature of McDonalds coffee"?

"The Actual Facts About The Mcdonalds' Coffee Case"
http://www.lectlaw.com/files/cur78.htm

In short, McDonalds now labels their coffee because people were getting
third degree burns from it, including the most famous woman who received
them over six percent of her body including some very sensitive regions.

In addition to labelling their coffee as hot, McDonalds also now serves
their coffee at a reasonable temperature instead of at 40 to 50 degrees
above the level that McDonalds' own research found to be hazardous.

Sure, it's important to keep your sense of humor, but it gets pretty hard
to keep your sense of humor when you're talking about corporations whose
policies are (to quote the judge in the case) reckless, callous, and
willful.
