Top Ten Stupidest Warning Messages

The Top Ten

1 Warning: Remove child before folding (Pushchairs)

Failure to do so counts as child abuse... Is anyone really this stupid? - Cazaam

I'm glad I'm not the daughter of any mindless mother who would fold the chair while I'm in it...

I already squashed a kid. - AlphaQ

Squashed child anyone?

2 Warning: Pepper spray causes eye irritation (Pepper Spray)

No, there are some ignorant fellows who would try to experiment with pepper sprays and hence the warning message. Pepper when used for fum can be really dangerous. Warning message is justifiable. - Kiteretsunu

Dude someone at my friends school pepper sprayed the whole damn tuckshop! - AlphaQ

Well, that's what it's used for... - Cazaam


3 Warning: This costume does not enable flight (Superman costume)

There are some rabid comic fans who would try out using the costume for umm.. practical purposes. Cases of death from falling have been registered which includes kids trying to fly like their superhero counterparts. The company can't take any risks you know. - Kiteretsunu

Reality sucks doesn't it? Especially when you've already jumped off a building without reading this first.
If you think a cheap Superman costume will give you the ability to fly you deserve to die. No offence. - Cazaam

One out of a hundred kids actually need this warning. - Animefan12

You can fly. Here I'll drop you. - AlphaQ

Oh really? That's an odd thing for a scooter to do! - PopcornPelican

That's what its for

8 Warning: Do not eat (iPod Shuffle)

Sure, cause we buy a $300 dollar device so we can eat it.

Ok Apple we get it, just because you're named after a popular fruit doesn't mean that people will eat you unless they have a serious problem... And no, we won't order a big mac either.

You call that a warning I call it a challenge

I laughed so hard - TeamRocket747

12 Warning: Do Not Swallow (notice on mattress)

You think with something that size in your mouth it would be easy to swallow...?! - Britgirl

Is it bad read this and thought of something else...

Yes, well (clears throat)... :). Once bought a bathtub mat upon which, on the bottom side with the suckers, was embossed, TWICE, in LARGE letters : THIS SIDE DOWN. Knew right then that hope for the species was rapidly fading.

Haha and so beganth the age of suckers (re. bathmats) but not swallowers :). - Britgirl
