I got this email about the labels on certain consumer goods, I do think it's funny how companies have to practice CYA on everything these days to avoid stupid lawsuits. Actually I think it's more tragic than funny.
Just For Fun
Here are some actual label instructions on consumer goods:
On a Sears hairdryer: Do not use while sleeping.
(but that's the only time I have to do 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.'
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.'
On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding: 'Product will be hot after heating.'
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 Sunsbury's peanuts: 'Warning: contains nuts.'
(talk about a news flash)
On a baby stroller: 'Remove child before folding'
On a child’s scooter: 'This product moves when used'
(I never knew....)
On a sun shield for your car's front window or windshield: 'Warning: Remove before driving.'
On a child's superman costume: 'Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly.'
