What is the deal with this useless vending machine notice?

hmm, well if it was me and I Saw that sticker I would take a picture of it thinking hah that’s hilarious. And then I would tell everyone about it, and so it would be in my mind. And then one day I would walk by a vending machine that didn’t have the sticker and I would call that number and get a cash reward, but then I would be sad because the sticker would no longer seem so hilarious, but only mundanely effective,

Luckily I’ve only seen that sticker here, and I’m not going to Florida, man.

If you notice this notice you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

What wonderful nonsense!

For the first time ever, a story from Florida has increased my respect for the state…though I suspect it’s not deliberately amusing.

Uhm… wait.

Is there any law stopping people from displaying that notice on their vending machines without getting the registration certificate?

Usually, forging a certificate is a crime that carries more penalties than not having the certificate in the first place. Therefore, 9 out of 10 people who would try to get away with doing X without having a proper certificate will stop short of displaying a forged certificate, so that makes enforcing the rules easier.

But can there ever be a law that prevents people from posting that “NOTICE TO CUSTOMER” wherever they please? It’s a true statement about Florida law, after all.

No doubt there is a whole bureaucracy of vending machine sticker inspectors, and managers for those inspectors, probably some well paid administrator to run the whole thing as well. And the inspectors are supplied with state-owned vehicles, which are kept at some large facility, and maintained on site. And the people who maintain the sticker inspection vehicles have their own administration. There is no doubt an annual sticker inspection convention, where inspectors and supervisors stay at state expense, and discuss new sticker inspection trends and technologies.
