Replace "light" with "sausages" and this may work...

Astronomy photography disclaimers

Whilst looking at the supermoon pics on the Beeb, I noticed a complete lack of disclaimers, worrying in these litigious times.

For example "not actual size" on any or all of the Moon photos.

Not a single "Celestial objects may appear closer than they are in telescope"

"Planet Jupiter: Packed by weight, not volume. Contents may settle in transit"

"Planet Earth: May contain nuts".

And so on.

       Not to be confused with that nagging suspicion, that the chicken hadn't been cooked all the way through, the salmonella of doubt,

       Pluto is wholly owned and operated by the Walt Disney company, viewing as a planet is strictly prohibited unless otherwise indicated.   

       I would legitimately like to see disclaimers for astrophotos that are actually "artist's renderings" of pulsars or artificially colorized. It's hard to find real nebula photos in visible light.

       You mean, those weren't real? NB I am not venturing a tag for Uranus, it's too easy.

       I dunno, [not_morr]. If I tried tagging Uranus, you'd probably make it very difficult.

       Can't say I've ever had any parts of my body RFID'd.   

       But at least it'd partially rebut "the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing" stuff, as the right hand would have a reasonable idea of where the left hand is, which would narrow the possibilities.
