Odd Labels

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.
--On a bag of Fritos: You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside.
On a bar of Dial soap: "Directions: Use like regular soap."
On some Swanson frozen dinners: "Serving suggestion: Defrost."

On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom): "Do not turn upside down."

On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding: "Product will be hot after heating."

On packaging for a Rowenta iron: "Do not iron clothes on body."
On Boot's Children Cough Medicine: "Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication."
On Nytol Sleep Aid: "Warning: May cause drowsiness."
On most brands of Christmas lights: "For indoor or outdoor use only."

On a Japanese food processor: "Not to be used for the other use."
On Sainsbury's peanuts: "Warning: contains nuts."
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."

Some people do need help.

Haha.....those are funny. That reminds me of the time we were at the T's house and Alex came up stairs with a bottle of soap and said, "look, they actually have instructions for using soap!"

Those are hilarious!! I especially like the Sleep Aid that may cause drowsiness...

Natalie said...

First of all...woo-hoo, you're blogging again!

Secondly, the Christmas light thing is hilarious! :D Maybe the people who write the labels live in this area that's not indoor or outdoor...that could explain some things. :P

that reminds me that the back of the Suave Kids shampoo says:
Caution: keep out of reach of young children!
