Two I have come across myself...

I bought a new cable for my Nintendo Wii (it came in a simple plastic baggy with card top) and on the back there was a little diagram of how to hook the Wii up to the TV using said cable. There was a notice underneath that read "console and TV not included"

I once bought a novelty Darth Vader toy and on the back was a sign saying "warning - choking hazard!"

Only one is coming through, but I found both of these amusing:

Good thread!

I was going to add to the thread and was doing some research on some funny Homeland security signs I saw once, and came across this:

No exploding. Or trumpets.

funniest signs

very funny thread....

I bought a gas heater a couple of years ago and the instructions included a set of diagrams showing what not to do with your heater, including a rather bizarre diagram that indicated in no circumstances should I place a kangaroo on the heater - but only whilst it was operating (???)

I am in Australia but I'm sure none of us are that stupid. It also begs the question as to who actually did this in the first place in order to warrant a national warning as part of the instructions ; )

Ok, I am having way to much fun with that site.

I was laughing so hard at this sign and the news story, I was choking.

That is hilarious as Hell. Only the British are obssessed with ****ing.

Thought I was going to cough up a lung.

The tag on the red cape said; "Wearing cape does not grant the ability of flight"

We had a local paper with a headline:

I just hurt myself laughing.

Well, some of these make it seems like people are chronically suffering from pica [sp?].

For many, I would bet they stem from poor translations. If you want to see some funny signs, go to - a collection of photos of signs, packaging, clothes, etc. in English, mostly from Japan and Korea.

That sad part about a lot of those signs is that they are there because someone tried something.

Years ago when I worked for a well known Vermont stove company, one of my jobs was to stamp on the back of the stoves a warning that said "Caution hot when in use"!

My mother taught herself to read at 2, but most 2 year-olds learn that stoves are hot without reading about it.
