Warning: This one's about warnings

By Critical_Conformity     Feb 4, 2007 in Lifestyle
Don't say you haven't been warned.
Author Bob Dorigo Jones is the founder of M-LAW, the Michigan Lawsuit Abuse Watch, an anti-lawsuit group has a book out.
These are real warning labels on products sold in the U.S. These and dozens more are featured in "Remove Child Before Folding: The 101 Stupidest, Silliest, and Wackiest Warning Labels Ever"
Here are more examples of kooky caveats from the book:
A toilet-cleaning brush labeled "Do not use for personal hygiene" -- is in the book, along with such worthy rivals as slippers ("Do not eat") and frozen mozzarella sticks ("Product becomes hot after cooking").
"Do not eat toner" (on a printer cartridge).
"Never iron clothes while they are being worn" (on a household iron).
"Caution: This is not to be used by children under 3 yrs. of age" (on a child's toy badge that proclaims "I am 2.")
a telephone directory with the cover statement, "Please do not use this directory while operating a moving vehicle."
"This product moves when used" (on a child's scooter).
"Ovenware will get hot when used in oven" (on a baking utensil).
"Does not supply oxygen" (on a simple paper dust mask).
"Do not iron" (on all California Super Lotto tickets).
A warning on a cell phone that said, "Don't try to dry your phone in a microwave oven."
And arguably the best advice comes with a professional kitchen knife: "Never hold a knife while arguing."
