Most consumer warning labels were printed to prevent being sued. You would think that people wouldn’t harm themselves just because the product didn’t say to NOT do something harmful and specific, but there you go. These warnings were said to have been found on various products…have you found one before?!
On a Sears hairdryer — Do not use while sleeping.
(Shoot, and that’s the only time I have to work on my hair.)
On a bag of Fritos — You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside.
(the shoplifter special?)
On a bar of Dial soap — “Directions: Use like regular soap,”
(and that would be…?)
On some Swanson frozen dinners — “Serving suggestion: Defrost.”
(but, it’s “just” a suggestion).
On Tesco’s Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom) — “Do not turn upside down.”
(a bit late, huh?)
On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding — “Product will be hot after heating.”
(…and you thought?)
On packaging for a Rowena iron — “Do not iron clothes on body.”
(but wouldn’t this save me more time?)
On Boot’s Children Cough Medicine — “Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication.”
(We could do a lot to reduce the rate of construction accidents if we could just get those 5-year-olds with head-colds off those forklifts.)
On Nytol Sleep Aid — “Warning: May cause drowsiness.”
(and…I’m taking this because?)
On most brands of Christmas lights — “For indoor or outdoor use only.”
(as opposed to…?)
On a Japanese food processor — “Not to be used for the other use.”
(now, somebody out there, help me on this. I’m a bit curious…)
On Sainsbury’s peanuts — “Warning: contains nuts.”
(in other news, water is wet!)
On an American Airlines packet of nuts — “Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts.”
On a child’s Superman costume — “Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly.”
(I don’t blame the company. I blame the parents for this one.)
On a Swedish chainsaw — “Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals.”
(Oh my…was there a lot of this happening somewhere?!)
We can’t stop laughing!
