Warning #5: Microwave Madness

Seen on a microwave oven manual: "Do not use for drying pets."
To be fair, some people totally misunderstand that "hot dog" button.

Seen on the packaging for a wristwatch: "Warning! This is not underwear! Do not attempt to put in pants."

I can't image the lawsuit that resulted in this warning...

No worst than food warnings.. Like the packaged Devil eggs, warning this contains eggs.. , or buying a reeses butter cup and has a warning that this contains peanuts or made in a facility that makes peanut products. sad that we have become so stupid that we got to put warning labels on every thing. The movie idiocracy comes to mind.

Personally, I think we should just let stupid people kill themselves. We'd all be a lot better off.

People are that stupid but what is even more mind-boggling is that crafty, greedy lawyers to be able to convince people into making a serious lawsuit out of their own stupid, and to top it all off, the so-called justice system to actually reward these idiots.

They really need to let nature do its job by weeding out the weak and the dumb ones.

Warning #14: Oral Warning

Seen on an electric thermometer's instruction sheet: "Do not use orally after using rectally."

Well, that's just plain common sense!
