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

    On a Sears hairdryer: Do not use while sleeping. (darn, 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 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, uh...fly Delta?)

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

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

    the better version of that one is:
    "On a packet of nuts: WARNING: May contain nuts"

    thanx for sharing these are great

    I laughed for ages on reading that...especially since I've seen the Wallace and Gromit movie. Has anyone else? Wallace wakes up naked and puts on a box to cover himself up...that's what it says on it :D
