Stupid Warning Labels

No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people
-H. L. Mencken.

Collapsible baby stroller:
Remove child before folding

Toilet-bowl brush:
Do not use orally

Do not use snowblower on roof

Do not attempt to stop chain with hands

Hair dryer:
Do not use in the shower

Container of underarm deodorant:
Caution: Do not spray in eyes

Microwave oven:
Do not use for drying pets

6x10 inch inflatable picture frame:
Not to be used as a personal flotation device

Automobile cardboard sunshield:
Do not drive with sunshield in place

You just know some of these warnings are there because someone once tried to do what the warning now tells you not to do. Want proof? Go find "Stumpy" and ask him about the chainsaw.
