    That's the sad part – when you read them you KNOW they're there because some dipshidiot did that dipshidiot doofus thing and then sued the manufacturer.

    Warning: You also should not use the hair dryer whilst IN the shower. srsly.

    Have a terrific day, hon! big hugs xoxo

    Good gravy on the chainsaw. That one took the cake and then some.
    And lol at Barb. She's probably 100% correct. πŸ˜‰

    Those are really funny. Like the last one. Wonder how many kids have tried to fly with a superman costume on.Sandee, you and Zane and Little Bit have a fun day.

    • September 29, 2015 at 12:00 pm

      Yep, there are a whole bunch of stupid people and you can't fix stupid. πŸ™‚

    hilarious and sad at the same time. Sad because MANY people need these warnings!

    • September 29, 2015 at 12:00 pm

      It is sad. Common sense doesn't seem to touch some folks. πŸ™‚

    Our world is insane and these warning labels are even further proof of that! That chainsaw one is terrible!!

    • September 29, 2015 at 12:00 pm

      Yep, the world is insane and getting worse everyday. πŸ™‚

    Absence of ad puts the manufacturer in a fix, presence of ad puts the consumer in a fix.
    Have a great day!

    • September 29, 2015 at 12:01 pm

      Yep, I guess you're right. πŸ™‚

    How stupid human being are. On Sainsbury's peanuts: Warning – contains nuts.& On an American Airlines packet of nuts: Instructions – open packet, eat nuts shows you how nuts they are. Oh well, that's life.

    Have a wonderful sunny Tuesday Sandee. See ya.

      Yes, many are very stupid. πŸ™‚

    Bring on the Darwin Awards. These are funny/sad. Some made me laugh out loud and some remind me of how scary stupid some people are out there. Yikes.

    I bought a queen-sized pillow on Friday and took the plastic bag it came in and asked my husband if he knew anybody who had a baby. He asked me why. Holding up the large bag, I told him I thought the baby could use a toy. He laughed. Silly me, I didn't read the warning, THIS IS NOT A TOY. Seriously, I wonder about some people and they vote.

    • September 29, 2015 at 12:01 pm

      Yes, they vote and we see how that's turned out. πŸ™‚

    I love the ones about the shower cap and the knife. Language translations leave something to be desired in both cases.

    • September 29, 2015 at 12:02 pm

      Yes indeed Jean, yes indeed. πŸ™‚

    Here are a few to add to the list:

    * Birthday Card for a 2 year old: Not suitable for children under 3.
    * Child's Scooter: This product moves when used.
    * Dremel Electric Rotary Tool: This product not intended for use as a dental drill.

    Thanks for the grin.

      Oh these are great additions Alec. πŸ™‚

    Some of these were intentional for humor purpose…one would hope at least, but probably they are just the result of lawyers.

    I like those giant windshield sun visors that warn "Remove before driving" as if anyone who would not remove it could read anyway.

    • September 29, 2015 at 12:03 pm

      Well, you never know about some people Joe. πŸ™‚

  12. September 29, 2015 at 8:09 am

    Funny! I think my favorite is the Fritos one.

    • September 29, 2015 at 12:04 pm

      That is a head scratcher isn't it. πŸ™‚

  13. September 29, 2015 at 8:09 am

    It is funny, but all of the nut butter products have to warn you that there are nuts in them, the government requires it. Some people deserve the Darwin award they would get from ignoring these.

    • September 29, 2015 at 12:04 pm

      This is very true. πŸ™‚

  14. September 29, 2015 at 8:40 am

    Yogi Berra still lives and is writing instructions.

    • September 29, 2015 at 12:04 pm

      I'm guessing you're probably right. πŸ™‚

  15. September 29, 2015 at 8:40 am

    Some are funny, some are crazy and some silly! These are part of our everyday life lol!

    • September 29, 2015 at 12:04 pm

      Yes, it's part of our everyday life. πŸ™‚

  16. September 29, 2015 at 10:25 am

    LMAO it does make you wonder who actually thinks these up for the companies heheh!

    Have a obvioustastic day Sandee g-)

    • September 29, 2015 at 12:05 pm

      Risk management probably. πŸ™‚

  17. September 29, 2015 at 12:56 pm

    Trouble is the people who need those warnings don't read the warnings!

    Hope you're having a great Tortie Tuesday Sandee! Smooches to Little Bit!

    • September 29, 2015 at 1:49 pm

      That's true they don't read the warnings. You can't fix stupid. πŸ™‚

    I laughed through the entire list. These are hysterical

    • September 29, 2015 at 1:50 pm

      They are and they are sad too. πŸ™‚

  19. September 29, 2015 at 2:05 pm

    I always got a kick out of the warning on the sunshades you put in your windshield to keep the sun out in the summertime. "Remove before driving." You couldn't even see with it in place!

    • September 29, 2015 at 4:45 pm

      That's kind of a no brainer isn't it. πŸ™‚

  20. September 29, 2015 at 3:19 pm

    Oh my gosh, I was laughing so hard… the last two though… so priceless.

    Love it!!

    • September 29, 2015 at 4:45 pm

      We live in such a litigious society. πŸ™

  21. September 29, 2015 at 6:35 pm

    Hilarious, Sandee!!! Thank you so much for sharing. πŸ™‚

    • September 30, 2015 at 8:17 am

      You're most welcome Linda. πŸ™‚

  22. September 29, 2015 at 8:18 pm

    litigious nonsense led to ridiculous labels….but they made me laugh! Silly silly! Cheers!

    • September 30, 2015 at 8:17 am

      Me too Kathe, they made me laugh too. πŸ™‚

  23. September 30, 2015 at 4:58 am

    I love these. Hilarious. Thanks for the laughs.

    • September 30, 2015 at 8:17 am

      You're most welcome Rhonda. I know how you love to laugh. πŸ™‚

  24. September 30, 2015 at 3:22 pm

    I'm taking that Superman costume back.

    • September 30, 2015 at 4:27 pm

      And all this time I thought your were brilliant. Oh wait, it's your sense of humor I like the most. Carry on. πŸ™‚
