Last week I bought a funky-looking toy for my eight-month-old son. Along with the fact that he just loves it came a bonus with the instructions.

The small card – not much larger than a business card, but with rounded edges – managed to contain all of the key information in friendly, upbeat language. Only downside of course: the very small type.

But here was the capper. In about 8 point type, the final two lines read like so:

“Congratulations! You have managed to read this very tiny print.

You are a very patient person.”

How very refreshing! Happy Friday.

(BTW, the company is B. [pronounced B-dot] Toys. [the company does not seem to have its own website, but this link gives a decent description and pix of a couple other equally-funky-looking items from B.])
