Stupidity in Labeling/Advertising
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 Sear's hairdryer:
"Do not use while sleeping."
(Gee, 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, how?...)
On some Swanson frozen dinners:
"Serving suggestion: Defrost."
(But its just a suggestion...)
On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom):
"Do not turn upside down."
On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding:
"Product will be hot after heating."
(As night follows day...)
On packaging for a Rowenta 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 five-year-olds with head-colds off those forklifts.)
On Nytol Sleep Aid:
"Warning: May cause drowsiness."
(One would hope...)
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."
(I gotta admit, I'm 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: Fly Delta.)
On a child's Superman costume:
"Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly."
(I don't blame the company. I blame parents for this one.)
On a Swedish chainsaw:
"Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals."
(Was there a lot of this happening somewhere? My God!)
Now that you've laughed your head off, it's your turn to spread the stupidity and send this to someone you want to have a good laugh. We all need a good smile every once in a while.
