I guess if you are warned about something, someone else has already tried it.

Here is the warning label on a Halloween costume I saw while shopping with my granddaughter last year.

"Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly."

Have you come across a warning label that makes you smile?

At my old job we had a Mazak flatbed laser cutting center, with warning labels written in Japanese and (badly) translated. They were good for a cheap laugh.

I can tell you one that just infuriates me - the warning on a coffee cup that the contents may be hot.

"The State of California, using the unscientific Precautionary Principle, has determined that every substance on Earth has the potential to cause cancer."

This is roughly translated of course! grin2

Plastic 5 gallon pails of motor oil have warning symbols on them of a small kid folded up at the waist going headfirst into an empty bucket. Remember people,never remove the lid off a 5 gallon pail of oil,kids could go for a tumble.

I think my favorite is the one on hair dryers that says not to use while showering.

I also believe that using a blow dryer in the shower would be bad.

Electrocution hazard aside, it's the fact that somebody would be trying to dry their hair while showering that seems funny. I'm sure somebody attempted it, otherwise hair dryers wouldn't have that warning label and attached GFCI.

But there are idiots out there. People have used push lawn mowers to cut hedges and gotten hurt. Then they sue the manufacturer for not mentioning that as a restriction.

We have a rather large massage tool called a Thumper, I bought it at a time I was suffering muscular back pain.

It has a warning : Not to be used on testicles.
