on being dumb

i'm buying a couple of things from chef's catalog, the nonstick oven liner in particular. the disclaimer on the bottom of the page reads this:

If the oven liner is misused it may cause the death of pet birds.

it took me a few seconds before i realized that people must use these to line their bird cages. for a moment i thought that people were caging their animals in the oven. i thought, Why are people stupid?
