Insane EULA clauses

Wow. I like Monopoly, and so while I was picking up cables and whatnot at a local store, I saw in their games aisle a 3D Monopoly game, with network play, for ten bucks. So I grabbed it. I like it, well worth ten dollars. But the nutty part was what I saw when reading the End User License Agreement for the game. I grasp companies have to limit their liability and all but I found this clause just plain funny:



You acknowledge that Hasbro Interactive is not responsible for the Internet or whether it should continue to exist in its present form or whether or not a government or governmental agency, either foreign or domestic, will control, regulate or disband the Internet.

I can see making it clear the Internet isn’t their responsibility, but the rest is bizarre.
