    Proof of Stupidity

    In case you needed further proof that the human race is doomed
    through stupidity, here are some actual label instructions on
    consumer goods.

    1. On Sears hairdryer: "Do not use while sleeping". (Gee, that's
    the only time I have to work on my hair)

    2. On a bag of Fritos: "You could be winner! No purchase
    necessary. Details inside". (Evidently, the shoplifter

    3. On a bar of Dial soap: "Directions: Use like regular soap."
    (And that would be how ...?)

    4. On some Swanson frozen dinners: "Serving suggestions:
    Defrost." (But it's *just* a suggestion)

    5. On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom of box) "Do
    not turn upside down". (Oops, too late!)

    6. On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding: "Product will be hot after
    heating". (As night follows the day ...)

    7. On packaging for a Rowenta iron: "Do not iron clothes on
    body". (But wouldn't this save even more time?)

    8. 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 colds off those forklifts.)

    9. On Nytol Sleep Aid: "Warning: May cause drowsiness". (One
    would hope)

    10. On most brands of Christmas lights: "For indoor or outdoor
    use only". (As opposed to what?)

    11. On a Japanese food processor: "Not to be used for the other
    use". (I gotta admit, I'm curious).

    12. On Sainsbury's peanuts: "Warning: Contains nuts". (NEWS

    13. On an American Airlines packet of nuts: Instructions: Open
    packet, eat nuts." (Step 3: Fly Delta).

    14. 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.)

    15. On a Swedish chain saw: "Do not attempt to stop chain with
    your hands or genitals". (Was there a chance of this happening
