Consumer Labels

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

On a Sears hairdryer:  Do not use while sleeping.

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 a Swann frozen dinners:  Serving suggestion:  Defrost. (But it's just a suggestion.)

On Tesco's tiramisu dessert (printed on the bottom of box):  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.

On Boot's children's cough medicine:  "Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication."

On Nytol sleep aid:  Warning:  May cause drowsiness.

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.  (I gotta admit, I'm curious.)

On Sainsbury's peanuts:  "Warning:  contains nuts."

On an American Airlines packet of peanuts:  "Instructions:  Open packet, eat nuts."

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.)
