Pixar's funny EULA for Buy n' Large

Gary sez, "For Pixar's upcoming film Wall*E, they studio has created a very detailed website for Buy n' Large, the corporation that is credited as part of the cause of human civilization's descent into couch dwelling sloths. The site in and of itself is a fantastic, yet subtle, send up of corporate policies and puffery. Pixar's gentle, yet pointed, satire is amusing throughout the surprisingly massive site.

"But the true brilliance lays in the Buy n Large Disclaimer. It's fantastic. In fact, the brilliance starts on the homepage where they state 'Opt-out requests may be ignored as we do not send this site or any communications to anyone.'"
