image for Understanding the Small Print UNBREAKABLE?

This world is constantly being tied up with red tape and bureaucracy and even with the simplest, cheapest gadgets (usually made in China, and therefore translated rather badly) come a plethora of instructions that can take weeks to digest before even using new equipment for the first time. Then of course there is the gobbledygook to contend with.

For example: I recently bought one of those new smart phones and before using it, I ploughed through the instruction manual.

The guarantee in the manual said in small print: "Insofar as manifestations of functional deficiencies are agreed by any and all concerned parties to be imperceivable, and are so stipulated, it is incumbent upon said heretofore mentioned parties to exercise the deferment of otherwise pertinent maintenance procedures."

In other words "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
