Health & Safety Warnings

On a child's buggy: 'Remove Child Before Folding.'

Warning label on a letter opener that says: 'Caution: Safety goggles recommended.'

Fuel Tank Cap: 'Never use a lit match or open flame to check the fuel level.'

A cartridge for a laser printer warns, 'Do not eat toner'.

The label on a bottle of drain cleaner warns: 'If you do not understand, or cannot read, all directions, cautions and warnings, do not use this product.'

A warning on an electric drill made for carpenters cautions: 'This product not intended for use as a dental drill.'

A dishwasher carries this warning: 'Do not allow children to play in the dishwasher.'

'The Vanishing Fabric Marker should not be used as a writing instrument for signing checks or any legal documents.'

  4. I couldn't even begin to pick a funniest, but the scariest is the thought of why they needed the dental drill warning.

  6. I am with Ann on the vanishing magic marker. And as a small fact, our veterinarian has to grind down the teeth on our Donkey, Joe because he has a misformed mouth so his teeth do funny things and the vet uses a drill with a file on the end of it. Anyway, these are all really funny. Have a wonderful day Sandee, Zane and Little Bit.

  8. "The label on a bottle of drain cleaner warns: 'If you do not understand, or cannot read, all directions, cautions and warnings, do not use this product.'" Dah!

    . I loved them all Sandee. I wonder if there are people that silly in this world? The answer, probably. Have a wonderful warm day my friend because I'm not warm today.
