These come to you from Uncle John's Bathroom Reader, don't know what year, but it's the 15th edition. Apparently they are real warnings on labels.
On a Duraflame log: Caution - Risk of Fire
On a cd player: Do not use the Ultradisc 2000 as a projectile in a catapult.
On a propane blowtorch: Do not use while sleeping
On a vacuum cleaner: Do not use to pick up anything that is currently burning.
On a Batman costume: Warning: Cape does not enable user to fly
On a bottle of hair colouring: Do not use as an ice cream topping
On a curling iron: Warning: This product can burn eyes
On a cardboard sunshield for a car: Do not drive with sunshield in place.
On a toner cartridge: Do not eat toner
On a toilet bowl cleaning brush: Do not use orally.
On a pair of shin guards: Shin pads cannot protect any part of the body they do not cover.
On a portable stroller: Caution: Remove infant before folding for storage.
On a plastic 13" wheelbarrow wheel: Not intended for highway use
On a laser pointer: Do not look into laser with remaining eye.
Seriously goofy - but sure as the warnings weren't on there, someone would sue the company that made the product for not letting them know...
On a laser pointer: Do not look into laser with remaining eye
Thank you for that timely advice, Mame. I did
wonder why the other eye wasn't working any more!
just think, somebody in a legal department has to think all this stuff up
Gotta make absolutely sure that every single potential legal loophole is absolutely covered, djjd! Makes for fun reading, though!
something along the same line, the bad translation from one language to another, makes for some interesting instructions
Very "interesting" indeed, & maddening, too, when you're trying to set up the damned dvd/video recorder to actually function!
