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.

Yeah, but just think how much smarter he could've been if he had!

I'm suing because my child didn't get the patent-clerking experience I was promised.

Only tangentially related, but back in college I was having an argument with one of the religious types on the campus mall inre: abortion, and the ol' "Well, what if the aborted baby would have grown up to be the next Einstein" argument was thrown out. So I responded naturally with "What if it's the next Manson, or Hitler," and their response was "THAT COULDN'T HAPPEN!"

So, in conclusion, Baby Einstein videos were always a waste of time because they couldn't ever become Baby Mansons or Hitlers anyway.
