    In case you needed further proof that the human race is doomed through stupidity, here are some actual label instructions on consumer goods that can be found today being sold in stores nationwide:

    1. On Sears hairdryer:

    "Do not use while sleeping."

    (But..., that's the only time I have to work on my hair)



    2. On a bar of Dial soap:

    "Directions: Use like regular soap."

    (And that would be how. . . ?)



    3. On some Swanson frozen dinners:

    "Serving suggestions: Defrost."

    (But it's "just" a suggestion)



    4. On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom of box):

    "Do not turn upside down."

    (Oops, too late!)



    5. On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding:

    "Product will be hot after heating."

    (Hmm . . . .)



    6. On packaging for a Rowenta iron:

    "Do not iron clothes on body."

    (But wouldn't this save even more time?)



    7. On Boot's Children's 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

    forklifts.)



    8. On Nytol Sleep Aid:

    "Warning: May cause drowsiness."

    (One would hope)



    9. On most brands of Christmas lights:

    "For indoor or outdoor use only."

    (As opposed to underwater?)



    10. On a Japanese food processor:

    "Not to be used for the other use."

    (I gotta admit, I'm curious.)



    11. On Sainsbury's peanuts:

    "Warning: Contains nuts."

    (NEWS FLASH)



    12. On a child's Superman costume:

    "Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly."

    (I don't blame the company, I blame parents for this one.)



    13. On a Swedish chain saw:

    "Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands."

    (Was there a chance of this happening somewhere? . . . Good grief!)



    14. On a bottle of Palmolive Dishwashing liquid:

    "Do not use on food."

    (Hey, Mom, we're out of syrup! It's OK, honey, just grab the Palmolive!)

    I personally think Darwin was on to something....we should remove all these warning labels and put his theory to the test! I'm betting that in the U.S, this would result in a thinner population with a much higher average IQ.

    I didnt read them all, but I think they just dont want you to wash your food with it.

    they have to do this type of stuff to protect themselves from being sued.

    did u hear about the dog **** and the ladder? or the smoker in the hospital?

    ppl are stoooopid and it is never their fault.

    I know, it was meant to be funny.

    Anyways, I didn't write it. I took it from a website.

    My personal favorite is the warning label on flushable toilet brushes that warns, “Do not use for personal hygiene”. NOW that makes me wonder. . . . But, on the other hand, I really do not want to know.

    I tried to resist, but I have to add a few...

    A warning on a pair of shin guards manufactured for bicyclists says: "Shin pads cannot protect any part of the body they do not cover."

    A popular manufactured fireplace log warns: "Caution: Risk of Fire."

    A box of birthday cake candles says: "DO NOT use soft wax as ear plugs or for any other function that involves insertion into a body cavity."

    Snowblower: "Do not use snow blower on the roof."

    Dishwasher: "Do not allow children to play in the dishwasher."
