Elf and Safety

I am often seen spluttering in disbelief when I see ridiculous health and safety signs or warnings that are basically common sense. I am aware that in this litigious modern world organisers of events have to cover themselves but I am often seen with my mouth wide open with some of the notes:
  •  "...wear suitable clothing before,during and after the event..."
  • "...use sunblock that will last the duration of the race..."
  • "...marathon and half marathon races put significant demands on your body..."
  • "...warn you of the specific hazard of tripping over bollards, stakes, mooring lines and fishing rods close to the water’s edge..."
  • "...Public nudity will not be condoned..."
