Warning #25: Obvious Advice

Seen on a New Holland tractor: "Avoid death."

To their credit, I think that does pretty much cover everything.

 

Warning #26: Washing Warning

Seen on a washing machine: "DO NOT put any person in this washer."

Not even for a quick swim. Got it?

Warning #27: That's Hot

Seen on the packaging for a Rowenta-brand iron: “Do not iron clothes on body.”

If you do, you might be tempted to get in the washer afterward.

 

Warning #28: Printing Error

Seen on a laser printer toner cartridge: "Do not eat toner."

Advertising it as "licorice-flavored" might have been a mistake.

 

Warning #29: Read Me

Seen in a product's information booklet: "Do not use if you cannot see clearly to read the information in the information booklet."

Furthermore, if you cannot read this sentence, please call for help immediately.

 

Warning #30: Strange Process

Seen on a Japanese food processor: "Not to be used for the other use."

Believe me, you don't want to know.
