Where's That Baby Manson Video I Ordered?

I'm not sure how worthwhile the Baby Einstein lawsuit really is; I'm pretty sure that most people bought them not because they actually believed they would make their kids smarter, but because they believed that they would make their kids sit quietly in front of the TV. I'm always happy to see a big company get creamed for their bullshit claims, I just don't think a lot of consumer protection is actually taking place.

But just in case there were any lingering doubts, do you know how you can tell that Baby Einstein videos don't make your kids smarter? Because Actual Einstein didn't have them. Think, people, honestly. Just think it through.
