Menu: Instruction Manual...With a Side of Duh!

Yep, they dwell among us..... These are actual instruction labels on consumer goods:

On Sears hairdryer:
Do not use while sleeping. (Gee, that's the only time I have to work on my hair!!)

On Tesco's Tiramisu Dessert: (printed on bottom of the box):
Do Not Turn Upside Down. (Oops, too late!! Sucks to be you!)

On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding:
Product will be hot after heating
(Are you sure? Let's experiment.....OW OW OW OH SHIT!!)

On packaging for a Rowenta Iron:
Do not iron clothes on body.
(Awwww, come on, wouldn't that save time?)

On a string of Christmas lights:
For indoor or outdoor use only.
(As opposed to.....use in outer space??)

On a food processor:
Not to be used for the other use.
(Okay, now I'm just curious....anybody??)

On an American Airlines packet of nuts:
Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts.
(Somebody got paid big bucks to write this one.... )

On a Swedish chainsaw:
Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands.
(Geez, Raise your hand if you've tried this!!... )

.... :-P

I'd raise my hand, but...OMG, my hand....

As a tech writer by day, you would not believe what is expected to be included as safe instructions...

"OMG - it didn't say not to lift this if I have back problems"
