    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
