Who knew playing "Go Fish," "War," or even "500" demanded such maturity!?!

The Rat Pack Ultimate Collector's Edition DVD Set, which boasts four DVDs (Ocean's 11, Robin and the 7 Hoods, 4 For Texas, and Sergeants 3) as well as a variety of other film-related odds and ends, includes a (disappointing) deck of "Rat Pack" playing cards, with this warning on it:

Playing Cards are not a toy. Not intended for use by children 12 years of age or younger.

So, of course, I was expecting an image or two or three on the cards that would make them inappropriate for those of a tender age.

No such luck.

It's just the result of over-zealous corporate worriers concerned that the only thing one can do with cards is develop a gambling addiction...followed by a lawsuit.
