Miscellaneous By: sobyrt22

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

Sears Hairdryer: "Do not use while sleeping."

(shoot, and that's the only time I have to work on my hair.)

Bar of Dial soap: "Directions: Use like regular soap."

(and that would be how?....)

Swanson's frozen dinners: "Serving suggestion: Defrost."

(but, it's "just" a suggestion.)

Tesco's Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom): "Do not turn upside down."

(well, duh! a bit late huh?)

Mark's and Spencer Bread Pudding: "Product will be hot after heating."

(..and you thought?....)

Rowena iron: "Do not iron clothes on body."

(but wouldn't this save me more time?)

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 off those forklifts...)

Nytol Sleep Aid: "May cause drowsiness."

(and I'm taking this because?....)

Christmas Lights: "For Indoor and Outdoor use only."

(as opposed to what?...)

Japanese Food Processor: "Not to be used for the other use."

(now, somebody out there, help me on this. I'm a bit curious.)

Sainsbury's peanuts: "Warning: Contains nuts."

(talk about newsflash.)

American Airline's packet of nuts: "Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts."

(step 3: digest?)

Children's Superman Constume: "Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly."

(I don't blame the company on this one. I blame the parents.)

Swedish Chainsaw: "Do not attempt to stop chainsaw with your hand or genitals."

(Oh my.. was there a lot of this happening somewhere?)
