    Ok, so I just happened to think about a warning my brother was telling me about the other day.

    We all know the Stupid warnings on Products that Manufacturers have to put because you know that some Dipshit did what ever they happen to be warning about doing.

    Things like do not use hair dryer while in the shower.

    the one my brother told me was one he saw while in the Army.

    On the back of a Claymore Mine:
    "Face toward Enemy"
    and the kicker,
    "Do not Eat"

    What dumb warnings have you come across?

    How about the little dryer packets that come in electronics boxes. They say do not eat! Who buys electronics thinking there will be candy in the box?

    not exactly a "dumb warning"...but something along those lines that made me chuckle...

    the wife has a bottle of some fancy shampoo in the shower...and everybody is used to seeing the following:

    Wet hair, lather, rinse, repeat.

    Hers actually says:

    Lather, rinse, repeat if necessary (it shouldn't be).

    First honest shampoo bottle I've seen...:D

    There, I fixed it for you. And, you just proved WHY it's there. You, would've blown yourself up!

    Just remember, for every stupid waring/caution tag/sign you see, someone, somewhere F'd it up and caused the tag/sign to be needed

    thanks for fixing... not that I've been trained or even seen one in person.. thus "My brother" was telling me about it, I minced the words... I actually thought the funny part was, Do not eat. :D
