I bought a, um, supportive undergarment. Similar to spanx.

The label instructs me, "DO NOT IRON".

WTF???????????? Who would iron a girdle? Why would they need to tell me that, for piss sake? Did someone try to iron one and sue the company?

HFSSC, you should listen to Bill Engvall's "Warning Signs". Things like don't change an engine belt while the motor is running, don't take Prep H orally, do not insert a curling iron into any orafice... These are *actual* warning labels and you have to wonder at the intelligence level of the person responsible for the warning.

Where I work, one of our packaging materials is VCI (volatile corrosion inhibiting) paper. As its name suggests, it slows down/prevents rust. The warning on it says "Do not use with foodstuffs". Ummm, I know there are foods high in iron but NOT so high there's a danger of them rusting. And if the iron content WAS that high, I sure as hell wouldn't eat it.

Yeah, I've heard that bit by Engvall. It's hilarious.

I just read that label and was dumbfounded. Yours is pretty funny too.

I did see a label on some hairspray that cracked me up. It said something like, "Point can at head and depress the button... you know what? It's HAIR SPRAY. It's not rocket science. Spray it on your hair."

On 2 Broke Girls there's this episode they go to an insurance company and the lady has to explain why they have to sign off on no liability injury papers. Her explanation is "Let me give you a for instance..." I imagine that everytime I read a stupid label and wonder who made them need to put it there.

I was astounded when I read that there were peanuts in my peanut butter....WHO KNEW????

And I'm not talking about an ingredient label... It was a warning...

Thanks for the belly laugh this morning - these are all so funny! But I particularly love:

"Point can at head and depress the button... you know what? It's HAIR SPRAY. It's not rocket science. Spray it on your hair."


don't change an engine belt while the motor is running,

My favourite was on my stroller there was a small mesh basket under the seat. It said something like "Not suitable for carrying a child". Really? Who tried that?

Snapdragon, there is actually an episode of my strange addiction where a woman sleeps with her blowdryer on and hitting some part of her skin. She has woken up with burns and has scars but it comforts her like a security blanket.

broevil, I've seen "caution" labels on cans/jars of nuts that said "Packaged in a facility that processes nuts. May contain peanuts." or some such thing. Really? Who'da thunk that a can/jar of nuts came from a nut processing facility?

But peanut butter having peanuts in it? Wow, I never would have thought...
