Read the Label, Stupid!

We all buy products; food, vehicles, toys, gadgets, and so on. Some of these products come with labels (ie, when you buy a T-Shirt, it tells you where it was made, how you should wash it, and so on).

Sometimes, a little too much (or too little) thought goes into these labels, hence creating some of the ones you see below:

Found on a Tractor:

"Avoid death"

Ah yes. Because I wasn't actually going to consider that until you actually put it on the label.


Found on a Washing Machine:

"DO NOT put any
person in this washer"

Oh no. I actually spent money on this washer because I wanted to wash people. Guess my money went down the drain there, huh?


Found on a JetSki fuel tank:

"WARNING: Never use a lit match or open
flame to check fuel level."

You have got to be kidding me.


It doesn't end there; there are hundreds of beautifully thought out labels placed on objects all over the world, here are a few more examples:

A label on a baby stroller: “Remove child before folding"

A can of self-defense pepper spray warns users: “May irritate eyes

A smoke detector warns: “Do not use the Silence Feature in emergency situations. It will not extinguish a fire

The label on a bottle of drain cleaner warns: “If you do not understand, or cannot read, all directions, cautions and warnings, do not use this product

The only reason they put it is because American Law allows you to file a case (and win it) if you get "injured" because the product doesn't say you will be (even if common sense does). Like the case with the "caution: hot content" on coffee and tea cups.

ammar brother....dont you know that some idiot actually attempted to do exactly what the warning tells us not to do...hence the need for the warning....i might just go out on a limb here and say Id be willing to bet generally speaking men are the ones that caused those warnings to be placed on said items....men need great big DO NOT PROCEDE WITH THE IDIOCY YOU ARE ABOUT TO ATTEMPT! signs on everything. The signs are probably made by women...lol.

They need a label on Coke machines saying "Warning: Tipping machine may cause death". Some guy died when a vending machine crushed him while he was trying to tip a free Coke out of it.
