With all the crap that has been going on the last few days,hereis something to laugh at.

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.
( and 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 how???....)

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 more 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 forklifts.)

On Nytol Sleep Aid: "Warning: May
cause drowsiness."
(and...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 Sunsbury's peanuts: "Warning:
contains nuts."
(talk about a news flash)

On an American Airlines packet of nuts:
"Instructions: Open packet, eat
nuts." (Step 3: maybe, Delta?)

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." (...was there a lot of
this happening somewhere?)

Now that you've smiled at least once,
it's your turn to spread the
stupidity and send this to someone you want to
bring a smile to (maybe even a
chuckle) other words send this to everyone. We all need to smile every
once in a while.

In a similar vein, it's my opinion that any society that feels the need to print detailed instructions for use on a box a toothpicks has gone completely insane.

...That's why I don't go out much anymore; I stay home to *escape* from the asylum.

Real-Life Stupid People

I went to McDonalds. I looked at the menu and saw that you could have an order of 6,9 or 12 Chicken McNuggets. I asked for a half-dozen nuggets.
'We don't have a half-dozen nuggets,' said the teenager at the counter.
' You don't?' I replied.
'We only have six, nine or twelve,' was the reply.
'So I can't order a half-dozen nuggets but I can order six?'
'That's right.' so I shook my head and ordered six McNuggets.


"I have opinions of my own - strong opinions - but I don't always agree with them."
- George Bush

"It's time for the human race to enter the solar system!"
- Dan Quayle, on the concept of a manned mission to Mars

"The word 'genius' isn't applicable in football. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein."
- Joe Theisman, quarterback and sports analyst

"Bruce Sutter has been around for awhile and he's pretty old. He's thirty-five years old. That will give you some idea of how old he is."
- Ron Fairley, Giants' broadcaster

"Half this game is ninety percent mental."
- Danny Ozark, Phillies manager
