In Honor of Stupid People Everywhere!

In Honor of Stupid People . . .

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 hairdryer -- Do not use while sleeping. (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???....)

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.' (say what?)

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?)

Now that you've smiled at least once, it's your turn to spread the stupidity to someone you want to bring a smile to (maybe even chuckle)...

**** Blessed are the cracked: for it is they who let in the light *****

Have a wonderful week!

These were great!

I used to have a patient who loved the Swanson's frozen chicken dinner - AND - he'd eat it frozen but only in the summer. He claimed it was just too cold to eat frozen things in winter.

I worked with the severely and persistently mentally ill for a few years.

It just so happens that I ran into this guy in Minneapolis recently. He asked why I never came to visit him. I told him I didn't know where he was living now. "Saint Paul!" He proudly exclaimed. When I asked what he was doing in Minneapols, he said, "It's warmer over here!"

I miss that job... sometimes. :)

Cool and funny stuff. I'm an instruction looker from way back... not for good positive instructions, but the ones I can make fun of. I guess that's positive in itself. :-)

Who are the people who need these labels???? I want to gather them up and send them to a frozen island in Canada!
