Funny Warning Labels

Some actual label instructions on consumer goods.

--------------------------------

On a Sears hairdryer:

“Do not use while sleeping.”

(Gee, but 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 Swann frozen dinners:

“Serving suggestion: Defrost.”

(But it’s just a suggestion.)

--------------------------------

On Tesco’s Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom of box):

“Do not turn upside down.”

(A little late for that warning!)

--------------------------------

On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding:

“Product will be hot after heating.”

(I never would have guessed that one)

--------------------------------

On packaging for a Rowenta iron:

“Do not iron clothes on body.”

(But wouldn’t this save everyone a little more time?)

--------------------------------

On Boot’s Children’s 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 forklifts.)

--------------------------------

On Nytol Sleep Aid:

“Warning: May cause drowsiness.”

(And I was taking this because….)

--------------------------------

On most brands of Christmas lights:

“For indoor or outdoor use only.”

(As opposed to what other uses?)

--------------------------------

On a Japanese food processor:

“Not to be used for the other use.”

(I gotta admit, I’m curious - what other use???.)

--------------------------------

On Sainsbury’s peanuts:

“Warning: contains nuts.”

(Talk about a news flash.)

--------------------------------

On an American Airlines packet of nuts:

“Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts.”

(ane let me guess….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.)
