Samuel Choy asked:
"There aren't any seal police around are there?"

If there are, they must be the same ones that will toss you in
the can if they catch you taking you taking off those tags on
furniture that say "Do not remove under penalty of law." Now
THERE's an example of bad writing - those labels have confused
people for years!

Yesterday I got a new keyboard for my computer. There was a seal over the
cover of the box that said "Do not break seal before usage." I could not
think of a way to use the keyboard while it was still in the box, so I went
ahead and broke the seal. There aren't any seal police around are there?
