From the “you plebes are too dumb to know what’s good for you” file, comes the story of a small business, Nap Nanny, with a great, eponymous product, forced out of business by the Consumer Products Safety Commission.

Here’s the founder of Nap Nanny, Leslie Gudel, telling the story in her own words.

The punchline: “The ongoing battle with the CPSC cost us so much money that it forced us out of business a month ago.”

From the CPSC’s About us Page: “CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard.” (emphasis mine)

Hey CPSC, why don’t you toads investigate Lipitor?
