In Honour of Stupid People. In case you needed further proof that the human race is doomed through stupidity,
here are some actual label instructions on consumer goods.
1. On Pick n' Pay's peanuts - 'Warning: contains nuts.'
(talk about a news flash)

2. On Clicks 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 bulldozers.)

3.
On a Woolworths Bread Pudding - 'Product will be hot after heating.'
(...and you thought????...)

4. On a Clicks hair dryer – ‘Do not use while sleeping.’
(That's the only time I have to work on my hair.)

5. On a bag of Simba Chips – ‘You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside’.
(the shoplifter special?)

6. On a bar of Dove soap - 'Directions: Use like regular soap.’
(and that would be???....)

7. On some Checkers frozen dinners - 'Serving suggestion: Defrost.'
(please note that it's just a suggestion.)

8. On the packaging of a Rowenta iron - 'Don't iron clothes on body.'
(but wouldn't this save me time?)

9. On Nytol Sleep Aid -- 'Warning: May cause drowsiness.'
(..I'm taking this because???....)

10. On some brands of Christmas lights of Eastern origin - 'For indoor or outdoor use only.'
(As opposed to what?)

11. On a Japanese food processor - 'Not to be used for the other use.'
(Now, somebody out there, please help me on this. I'm a bit curious.)

12. On a child's Superman costume - 'Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly.'
(Don't blame the company. I blame the parents for this one.)

13. On a German chainsaw - 'Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals.'
(Was there a lot of this happening somewhere?)

14. On Woolworth's Tiramisu dessert (printed on the bottom) 'Do not turn upside down.'
(well...duh, a bit late, huh!)

Laughed out loud at these! Although, I admit to being reassured by #1; I was worried there weren't any nuts in there!

Oh Belle. Great information. Think of all the mistakes we could have made without those instructions. Had a loud belly laugh at these. Great start to my day. Kay

Gayle is exactly right...it's the lawyers...and it's costing all of us a lot of money.

I don't know how I missed this one, Belle - but I can't stop laughing! Read it to Rich and he's on the floor laughing! :thankyou: :thankyou: for the giggles :going-crazy: :going-crazy:

Well, you can tell how stressed I've been - I just saw that I HAD seen it already - oh, well, it was a great laugh again this morning!
