    In case you needed further proof that the human race is doomed through stupidity, here are some actual label instructions on consumer goods.


    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 Tesco's Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom) -- "Do not turn upside down."
    (well...duh, a bit late, huh!)

    On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding -- "Product will be hot after heating."
    (...and you thought????...)

    On packaging for a Rowenta iron -- "Do not iron clothes on body."
    (but wouldn't this save me time?)

    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 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 Sainsbury's peanuts -- "Warning: contains nuts."
    (talk about a news flash)

    On an American Airlines packet of nuts -- "Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts."
    (Step 3: say what?)

    On a child's Superman costume -- "Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly."
    (I don't blame the company. I blame the parents for this one.)

    On a Swedish chainsaw -- "Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals."
    (Oh my God..was there a lot of this happening somewhere?)

    Reminds me of my days at B&Q as a student. A Bosch Hot Air Gun said on the side "WARNING! don't use this device as a hair-dryer!"

    So bear that in mind Foxy next time you are in there ;-)
