Have you ever read ridiculous warning signs on products or product boxes.

My favourite one that is so so funny was when I was in Sweden and this chainsaw had a warning saying "Don't try to stop with hands or genitals" biggrin.gif. Now I may be strange but I don't know anybody who would try and stop a chainsaw with their hands or genitals laugh.gif

Have you seen any great warning labels on products.

Another one I've seen was on a DVD box that I bought in the UK and it had a label on it saying "Keep product out of microwave" biggrin.gif

I think I've still got a picture of that one somewhere. I will try and find it and upload biggrin.gif

Quite a well known one: Supermarket cake packaged with the warning label "Do not turn upside down" on the bottom of the cake

Well, I clearly remember a sign on the fire exit door in a restaurant in Spain that said something like "exposed to intense heat will melt the material leaving the door unable to function properly..." laugh.gif

HAHA. They are great. The chainsaw one is partially in that list that I saw but the one I saw definitely had or genitals on it.

I'm at work and I'm literally wetting myself with items from that list. Brilliant biggrin.gif

My best mate Gilly used to be an Airline Stewardess! She used to bring back some of the stuff from the Planes like Snacks and those miniature Booze Bottles.
Well, on the back of a packet of Macadamia Nut it said 'Warning: MAY CONTAIN NUTS.'
And on a miniature Bottle of Coke was 'Warning: FOR BEVERAGE USE ONLY.'!!!!!

I'd rather have a full Bottle in front of me than a full Frontal Lobotomy!!

Another sourse of funny warnings is the first page of any electronic device manuals, for example "your xxx-9000 is not meant to be boiled in water, or tossed from 200m high, and don´t forget to plug it and press the "power" button".

This one comes from our very own Pete (Synfection) and I think he'd be happy for me to share this gem of a sign that he found on his travels. He texted this to me when he came across it and I think it's absolutely priceless - yes it's real
