    Amusing Warning Labels on Products
    [/color]


    [color=999933]Manufacturers of consumer products have to be liberal with the warning labels these days, lest they get sued. But for some of these, it's hard to know whether the company is being outright stupid or if they're simply targeting the most brain dead dumb among us in order to "cover" their arses.[/color]​

    On a Taiwanese shampoo: Use repeatedly for severe damage.

    In a US guide to setting up a new computer: To avoid condensation forming, allow the boxes to warm up to room temperature before opening. (Sensible, but the instruction was INSIDE the box.)

    On a Japanese product used to relieve painful hemorrhoids: Lie down on bed and insert poscool slowly up to the projected portion like a sword-guard into anal duct. While inserting poscool for approximately 5 minutes, keep quiet.

    On the bottle-top of a British flavored milk drink: After opening, keep upright.

    On a packet of Sunmaid raisins: Why not try tossing over your favorite breakfast cereal?

    On a bar of Dial soap: Directions - use like regular soap.

    do you guys have the warnings on the ciggie packets?

    Warning Smoking Kills
    Warning Smoking can harm your unborn child
    Warning Smoking can give you lung cancer

    they always make me laugh when I see my friend puffing away willingly...I don't think he even knows they are there, he has a selective blind spot!

    I have a blanket with that Tornado Warning on it... :laugh:
    I can attest to many of these... I used to work in the food product industry where I created the packaging designs... I was apalled at how they continually asked me to "dumb down" everything... ass-u-me nothing LOL!

    I was at the movie theatre and a pre-movie advertisement was for Rogers video and it showed some people going back in time like in the movie "Back to the Future".....in the bottom corner of the screen it said:

    "Dramatization. Do not attempt timetravel."

    What's this world coming too........
