dear Stupid Consumer: don't be stupid

Do you need a news article to tell you that $1 store deals are sometimes "deals?" Of course you do. You are stupid.
Think twice about vitamins. Consumer Reports found you can't always be sure of the ingredients. Stick to brand names.

Be careful about toys for children under 3. Many safety recalls involve cheap, imported toys with dangerous parts and high levels of lead.

You should also think twice about $1 extension cords. Consumer Reports found some cords may have faulty wiring that could cause fire. Even with safety labels it's hard to tell what's real and what's counterfeit.
See? There are deals, and then there are "deals." You will know the difference, because one has quotation marks.

Try not to be so stupid, Stupid.
