From a Blog Friend in GB

In Honour of Stupid People everywhere.
In case you needed further proof that the human race is doomed through stupidity, here are some actual label instructions on consumer goods.

On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom) --"Do not turn upside down."
(well...duh, a bit late, huh!)

On Sainsbury's peanuts --"Warning: contains nuts."
(talk about a news flash)

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

On a Sears hair dryer --Do not use while sleeping.
(That's the only time I have to work on my hair.)

On a bag of Doritos --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 packaging for a Rowenta iron --"Do not iron clothes on body."
(but wouldn't this save me time?)

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 an American Airlines packet of nuts --"Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts."
(Step 3: say what? No wonder they are going broke)

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?)

It is true, you cannot fix Stupid even those some of these companies try. I fear those that these warnings have been made. Made me smile and I am sorry to hear that about your injection. I worked in Life Insurance for years and can truly understand the delay. Peace

What a fun list! And, those are in English. We find some pretty funny ones written in English by people who obviously don't understand English. Fun!
