When I get this forwarded to me an I kinda liked it so I figured I'd share even if it may have already been posted but hey its the thought that counts.....right?? :P


In Honor 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



On a Sears hairdryer -- Do not use while sleeping.
(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."
(well...duh, a bit late, huh!)




On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding -- "Product will be hot after heating."
(...and you thought????...)


On packaging for a Rowenta iron -- "Do not iron clothes on body."
(but wouldn't this save me 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 bulldozers.)


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


On most brands of Christmas lights -- "For indoor or outdoor use only."


(As opposed to what?)




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."


(talk about a news flash)




On an American Airlines packet of nuts --"Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts."


(Step 3: say what?)





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 God..was there a lot of this happening somewhere?)

Sadly YES that would be the reason why they have them because odds are some dofus did something hurt themself and sued now they have the warnings.

Just recently I saw a bag of mixed nuts and it had a warning "may contain traces of peanuts and other nuts".

Now I understand the warning to a degree, because some people being highly allergic to peanuts, but it's a BAG OF MIXED NUTS FOR FUCKS SAKE.

The addition of "other nuts" is far more perplexing.
