Wacky Warning Labels

Each year a pro-tort-reform group called The Michigan Lawsuit Abuse Watch gives awards to the stupidest warning labels on consumer products. This year’s top winner was found on a toilet brush: "Do not use for personal hygiene." Other gems include:

-- A scooter with the warning "This product moves when used."

-- A digital thermometer with the advice "Once used rectally, the thermometer should not be used orally."

-- An electric blender used for chopping and dicing that reminds users to "Never remove food or other items from the blades while the product is operating."

I hope I live to see this label: "If you’re too stupid to use this product, stay away from the damn thing."

My favorite Gary Larsen cartoon depicted two befuddled looking guys being refused service in a restaurant by the prototypical shortorder cook indicating that they should -Begone! while at the same time pointing to a sign that said "No Brains, No Service!"

I proudly posted a laminated copy of that cartoon at the front entrance of my place of business for many years.

Happy New Year. Keep up the good work


I still like the one "If you can not read english, have someone read this to you."

Well, it took a nasty-tasting thermometer and a couple of missing digits, but I finally learned my lesson. I should’ve read those labels!

The left is stupid. Is there anywhere that they don’t reach?
