Top Ten Stupidest Warning Messages

These are on some of the products people buy, Anyway, they are all stupid and shouldn't exist.

The Top Ten

1 Warning: Remove child before folding (Pushchairs)

Oops... - 3DG20

Yeah, that would be a good idea.

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...

2 Warning: Contains peanuts (Packet of peanuts)

NANI?! - RoseWeasley

Really? I thought it was chocolate

TAKE COVER! (screams) - Pokemonfan10

Wow! I had no idea. - 3DG20

3 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


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

Who would actually think this? - MasterHand

NANI?! (Yes, I will be saying that a lot.) - RoseWeasley

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

5 Warning: This product moves when used. (Scooter)

Really now?! I wouldn't have guessed. - GehennaTheSecond

NANI?! - RoseWeasley

Everybody, we must glue our selves and animals to the ground, after burning everything else that provides transportation! It's dangerous to move!

Well, so do cars and buses! The whole concept of transport is dangerous! - PositronWildhawk

6 Warning: May cause drowsiness (Sleeping Pills)

*surprised Pikachu face* - RoseWeasley

Wow! Really?! - 3DG20

Yes, that's why I took it. So I could become sleepy and fall asleep.

I would like to return this because it makes me drowsy - Jonathan4Life

7 Warning: Avoid Death (Power Tools)

I have some advice: don't die - GleamingShadow

I kind of want to commit suicide now after reading this. Thanks! - 3DG20

It is in the nature of life to avoid death. Apparently it isn't the nature of life to put meaningful warnings on things. - Cyri

I almost failed this when I saw this warning message... - Cazaam

8 Warning: Do not eat (iPod Shuffle)

Ahh! Come on! I wanted to eat that for my breakfast! - MrCoolC

I prefer eating Tide Pods. - 3DG20

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.

9 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

10 Warning: Always use this product with adult supervision. (Cereal Bowl)

Excuse me? - GehennaTheSecond

The cereal might poke your eye out. - 3DG20

Because my grandma drowned in milk and my brother touched it and the fruit loops came out and attacked him.

Who knows, it may actually be a hand grenade or something in disguise - TwilightKitsune


The Contenders

11 Warning: Do not use it on yourself (Blowtorch)

I can still use it on other people though, right? - IpodSwagger

I can think of a few people who would do this, and its hard to believe that its possible to be dumb enough to do that!

If you’re stupid enough to try this, then please do. (Jk) - 3DG20

12 Warning: May contain virus (Anti-Virus Software)

Then maybe... Don't use this software? - Cyri

13 Warning: Do not eat as it contains lead (4 inch long fishing tackle)

Why is fishing tackle only 4 inches?

14 Warning: Do Not Point at Eyes Nor Face (Camera)

What if you want to take a selfie? - Skullkid755

15 Warning: Do not microwave (Flatscreen TV)

what - GleamingShadow

I think you'd need a pretty big microwave in order for someone to even think about that. - PianoQueen

I want to know where it would be possible to find a microwave that big?

If you try you'll need a big microwave. - Skullkid755

16 Warning: Never iron clothes while they are being worn (Iron)

NANI?! - RoseWeasley

Who would do this? If you do, please leave this planet, I don't want to live on the same planet as you. - Cazaam

You only make that mistake once... Or two times... Or several...

I'm pretty sure no idiot would think to do this.
