Ooh! There's a novelty!

On the reverse of a joke found in a cracker yesterday:

Safety Warning
These crackers are for adult use only and not suitable for children under 5 years of age as they may contain a functional sharp point of edge, or small parts, which may constitute a choking hazard.

It seems to me as if they haven't really thought this one through. The logic of placing the warning against using a cracker inside the actual cracker itself quite escapes me. Were a child of four, say, to use the cracker and injure themself on a functional sharp point of edge, or small parts, the cracker manufacturers have left themselves wide open to a major law suit.

But enough of this legal nonsense. The joke:

Q: What's a hedgehog's favourite food?
A: Prickled onions.

(Not bad for a cracker, actually.)
