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?)
Now That You’ve Smiled At Least Once, It’s Your Turn To Spread The Stupidity To Someone You Want To Bring A Smile To (Maybe Even Chuckle)…
