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


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


==========================

On Sainsbury's peanuts -- "Warning: contains nuts."
(talk about a news flash)

===========================

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 bulldozers.)

==========================

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

==========================

On a Sears hairdryer -- Do not use while sleeping.
(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....)

============================

On some Swanson frozen dinners -- "Serving suggestion: Defrost."
(but, it's just a suggestion.)

==========================

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

==============================

On Nytol Sleep Aid -- "Warning: May cause drowsiness."
(..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 an American Airlines packet of nuts -- "Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts."
(Step 3: say what)

===========================

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

===========================

I regularly see in the Dutch Supermarkets packs of milk etc. with the instruction: "Hier Openen"(Open Here).


The Tempest is an advanced assault vehicle, which carries two heavy Heat-Rays and a Canister Launcher.

That's sounds TOO obvious...
