    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

    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.

    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.
