TT # 21 Wacky Warnings


These are actual warning labels found on products. Some are pretty good!

1. On a shower cap: Fits one head (Sorry, freaks.)
2. On a child's scooter: This product moves when used (Uh, really?? Like, it actually moves and stuff?? Take it back, that's just crazy talk!)
3. Inside a six-inch plastic bag: Do not climb inside this bag and zip it. Doing so will cause injury or death. (You hear that? DO NOT climb inside!)
4. On an insect spray: This product not tested on animals (well, great...that's really encouraging)
5. On a can of pepper spray: May irritate eyes (MAY? MAY irritate eyes?? Comforting.)
6. On a fishing lure with a three-pronged hook: Harmful if swallowed (What do you think will happen if I just TRY??)
7. On a carpenter's drill: Not intended for use as a dental drill (That's right, Cletus, you may have to take mama to the ACTUAL dentist.)
8. On a package of earplugs: These earplugs are non-toxic, but may interfere with breathing if caught in the windpipe (So, you're telling me that JUST because they are non-toxic doesn't mean that I should eat them? Hmmmm...there's a concept.)
9. On a food processor: Not to be used for the other use (Is anyone else super curious as to what that "other use" may be??)
10. On a knife set: Never try to catch a falling knife (But, I'm a ninja!)
11. On a hair dryer: Do not use in shower (Now, does this just mean if the shower is on, because gosh, it sure would be convenient if I COULD use it IN the shower.)
12. On a bottle of dog shampoo:Contents should not be fed to fish (well, crap. I guess I'll just take it back, then!)
13. On a toilet: Recycled flush water unsafe for drinking (But I'm THIIIRRRRSSSSTTTTYYYY!!!!!)

With #3... You can climb into the bag. You just can't zip it while you're in it ;)

Oh my gosh these are hysterical. I am amazed by the necessity of some of these disclaimers, but geez there are a lot of nincompoops in the world. Happy Thursday Thirteen!

Absolutely hilarious, but it amazes me that these things are out there.
Great TT topic, mine is a history lesson on the thirties if you are interested.

Oh I loved those! The sad thing is, you know people actually had those problems for the companies to list those warnings. :)
Happy T13!

Do not use as a dental drill! Classic!

You know all of these were written...just because stupid people did them and tried to sue!!
I had a single packet of Midol once that warned you against taking it if you had an enlarged prostate.

Hmmm.

We once bought a jar of Planter's PEANUTS. They came in a PEANUT shaped jar. The first ingredient was PEANUTS. But they felt the need to put this warning on it:

Caution: Contains Peanuts.


NO WAY!!! PEANUTS!!! YOU'RE KIDDING!

isn't it CRAZY that there have been so many STOOOOPID people in the world SUING companies after THEY (the stupid ppl) lack common sense and NOW there are warning labels so the product ppl don't have to shell out another million dollars cuz the stupid ppl do stupid things?

#3 and #10 are my favorites, but only because of your comments. The ninja line is the BEST!

Bethany said...

That was sooo funny!! Love your comments they make them even funnier.
I'll try to remember not to eat my ear plugs. Thanks for the good laugh.

(And what's with the name Cletus?, my hubby loves to use it too. Too bad for him I wouldn't let him name one of our sons that)!
