In these nanny state and Health and Safety times, just in case you need further proof that we are doomed because of terminal stupidity, here's some actual instructions on the labels of consumer goods....

On a packet of Sainsbury's peanuts... 'Warning: Contains nuts'
On a hairdryer... 'Do not use while sleeping' 
On bar of Dial soap... 'Directions: Use like regular soap'
On a Marks and Spencer bread pudding... 'Product will be hot after heating'
On Tesco's tiramisu (printed on bottom of box)..'Do not turn upside down' 
On packaging for a Rowenta iron..'Warning: Do not iron clothes on body'
On Boots children's medicine..'Warning: Do not drive or operate machinery after taking this medication'
On Nytol sleep aid.. 'Warning: May cause drowsiness'
On a set of christmas lights... 'For indoor or outdoor use only'
On a Japanese food processor.. 'Not to be used for the other use' 
On a child's Superman costume... 'Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly'
On a Swedish chainsaw... 'Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands' 
On a bottle of Palmolive dishwashing liquid... 'Do not use on food' 

And there's more....

Caution on a Korean kitchen knife... 'Warning: Keep out of children'
Recommendation on Sunmaid raisins... 'Why not try tossing over your favourite cereal?'
On a TV remote control... 'Not dishwasher safe' 
In a microwave oven manual... 'Do not use for drying pets' 
On an electric cattle prod....'For use on animals only' 



  1. LOL : here some more :

    On a child's blow up paddling pool: Warning: No diving! You may become paralyzed

    On some Birds Eye frozen dinners:
    Serving suggestion: Defrost.

    On a portable pushchair: Remove infant before folding for storage

  2. It's a mad, mad world Sprinkles BV. I blame litigation and the f*ckwit culture we live in. TO think we once had a proud nation built on industrial and engineering supremacy and genius. Now we have Warning: May contain nuts. Yep, we sure do...
