In Honor of Stupid People

In case you needed further proof that the human race is doomed through stupidity:

here are some actual label instructions on consumer goods.

On Woolworth’s Tiramisu dessert (printed on the bottom)

Do not turn upside down.

(well…duh, a bit late, huh!)

On Pick n’ Pay’s peanuts

Warning: contains nuts

(talk about a news flash)

On Boot’s Children Cough Medicine

Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication.

(We could do a lot to reduce the rate of construction accidents if we could just get those 5 year-olds with head-colds off those bulldozers.)

On a Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding

Product will be hot after heating.

(…and you thought????…)

On a Clicks hair dryer

Do not use while sleeping.

(That’s the only time I have to work on my hair.)

On a bag of Simba Chips

You could be a winner! No purchase necessary!
Details inside.

(the shoplifter special?)

On a bar of Dove soap

Directions: Use like regular soap.

(and that would be???….)

On some Checkers frozen dinners

(please note that it’s just a suggestion.)

On the packaging of a Rowenta iron

Don’t iron clothes on body.

(but wouldn’t this save me time?)

On Nytol Sleep Aid

(..I’m taking this because???….)

On some brands of Christmas lights of Eastern origin

For indoor or outdoor use only.

(As opposed to what?)

On a Japanese food processor

Not to be used for the other use.

(Now, somebody out there, please help me on this. I’m a bit curious.)

Instructions on a SA Airways packet of peanuts

  1. Open packet;
  2. Eat nuts.

(Step 3: say what?)

On a child’s Superman costume

Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly.

(Don’t blame the company. I blame the parents for this one.)

On a German chainsaw

Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals.

(Was there a lot of this happening somewhere?)
