McDonnell Douglas Warranty Card Info

This was allegedly posted very briefly on the McDonnell-Douglas website by an employee there who obviously has a sense of humor.

The company, of course, does not have a sense of humor, and made the web_department take it down immediately (for once, the 'IMPORTANT' note at the end is worth a read, too).

Awesome! Although I've seen the "disclaimer" in other places before, with minor tweaks, like the type of dog living on borrowed time. Absquatulation is always there, though

Absolutely classic. Especially 13, the greatest number of all.
