On Sears hairdryer:

(But it's just a suggestion.)

"Do not turn upside down."

On packaging for an iron:
"Do not iron clothes on body."
(But wouldn't this save more time?)
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.)
On Nytol Sleep Aid:
"Warning: May cause drowsiness."
(One would only hope.)
On most brands of Christmas lights:
"For indoor or outdoor use only."
(As opposed to what?)

(Talk about a newsflash.)
On an American Airlines packet of nuts:
"Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts."
(Step 3: Fly Delta.)
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.)
On a Swedish chainsaw:
"Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals."
(Great suggestion... )
