Christmas Pudding? Certainly: Just Sign This Indemnity Form

"Diners sign Christmas pud waiver"
BBC (December 24, 2009)

"A central London restaurant has insisted that diners sign an indemnity form before eating Christmas puddings, some of which contained silver pieces.

"Some 350 diners at High Timber signed the waiver before eating the desserts, which contained silver charms.

"It read: 'I absolve High Timber from blame should I come to harm including a chipped tooth, or any injury as a result of swallowing it.'

"Restaurant owner Neleen Strauss said it had 'created a bit of a stir'.

"She said: 'I thought it was going to be a pain but decided to do it to cover my backside....'..."
A tip of the hat to irish_brigid, on Twitter, for the heads-up on this holiday legal oddity.
