Stupidity in Labeling/Advertising
(By Anonymous)

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."

(Too late!)

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.
