Stupidity at work.

Postby Mad'sWife » Mon Oct 20, 2003 7:23 am

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

On a Sear's hair dryer:
Do not use while sleeping.
(damn, and 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 Swanson frozen dinners:
"Serving suggestion: Defrost."
(but, it's "just" a suggestion).


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


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


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


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 forklifts.)


On Nytol Sleep Aid:
"Warning: May cause drowsiness."
(and...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 Sainsbury's peanuts:
"Warning: contains nuts."
(talk about a news flash)


On an American Airlines packet of nuts:
"Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts."
(Step 3: maybe, uh...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 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?)
We either make ourselves happy or miserable.

The amount of work is the same.

Lmao! :-D

The chainsaw one is a bit disturbing.........
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

And I've been disturbed by the rallye driver who wrote "please turn around" on the bottom of his car 8-o
