Meaning of DROOL-PROOF PAPER

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

Documentation that has been obsessively dumbed down, to the point where only a cretin could bear to read it, is said to have succumbed to the "drool-proof paper syndrome" or to have been "written on drool-proof paper". For example, this is an actual quote from apple computer's LaserWriter manual: "Do not expose your LaserWriter to open fire or flame."
