View Full Version : Dumb warning lables

January 26th, 2009, 7:01 AM
These are, as the title says, some really dumb warning lables I found on the internet, and one I heard on the radio. If you have heard of or seen some lables you fit the title, please tell us. Also what do you think of these?

1)Warning: Do Not Hit This Sign
Rim Drive, Durango, CO
2)The following is found on page 4 of the instruction book:
To place or answer a call, lift the handset.
To place a call, dial the desired number.
To end the call, hang up the handset.
Another gem, also on Page 4:
To put a call on Hold: Press “Hold”.
Lucent Technologies Model 6210 Telephone
3)On bottom side: “Keep Upright”.
Tesco Fruit Juice Carton
4)Made in America. Parts from Japan. Assembled in Mexico.
Fender Guitar
5)Warning : Do not stop blade with hand.
Unknown Chainsaw

The sad thing is, for some of these pepole had to have done this to get it put here.

I've seen a lot dumber. Trust me. I have to agree, people just love acting like idiots, then sue, and make US feel like idiots. What an Idiocracy.

We all remember the case were a woman ordered a coffee from McDonalds, sued because she got burned from the coffee, and earned a helload of money from it.

Today, those cups say: "Caution: Hot"

Mankind is still so Monkey'd up.

This isn't exactly a warning label, and it might be doctored, but it's still hilarious:


January 26th, 2009, 1:40 PM
the one that i find really funny is: on a packet of nuts it says warning may contain traces of nuts

January 26th, 2009, 2:13 PM
I have seen a lot of funny warning labels lately, but I can't remember. It's like, Warning! Toilet Ahead! >.>

The classic up here, on a bag of peanuts; CAUTION! MAY CONTAIN NUTS!
I generally just lugh at them but occasionally I just sit and think, are people really that stupid?

January 26th, 2009, 2:29 PM
On a bottle of medicine, supposedly to help depression:
May cause depression.

The chainsaw ones are hilarious. And I, to put it in IM speak, 'LOL'ed' at the sharp edges sign. Did anyone else notice it says in really small letters at the bottom, 'also, the bridge is out ahead' XD

Yeah, I've seen the peanut one too many times. In fact, I'm now looking at a jar of peanuts that says, 'Warning: May contain nuts.' May? MAY? Ahahaha. Funny. Yes, just maybe these peanuts contain nuts. It's concievable that they might not.

Honestly, people are idiots.

I'll be back soon with amusing signs.

EDIT: Ta-dah.

O RLY? (http://img128.imageshack.us/img128/4874/157140360d0dd63a28aad7.jpg)

Soymilk Troubles (http://www.aaronackerson.com/weblog/soy_warning.jpg). The first sentence says 'Do not drink if you are allergic to soy.' Not the best label, but funny. Honestly, if you're allergic to soy, you don't need an extra label telling you not to drink soymilk.


I found a bunch of them. Jackpot!

Swedish Chainsaw. (http://luckypuppy.bravehost.com/images/WARNpics/chainsaw.gif) The warning says 'Do not attempt to stop blade with your hands or genitals.' Lord.

Children's Cough Medicine. (http://luckypuppy.bravehost.com/images/WARNpics/cough.jpg) Children's. The label says '"Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication.' Like they're gonna start up the car.

iPod instructions. (http://luckypuppy.bravehost.com//images/WARNpics/ipod.jpg) Ya gotta wonder who they make these labels for.

Curling Iron. (http://luckypuppy.bravehost.com//images/WARNpics/curling-iron.jpg) Hmm. Never knew.

The Great 'May Contain Nuts'. (http://luckypuppy.bravehost.com/images/WARNpics/peanutwarning.jpg)

I'm Illegible. (http://luckypuppy.bravehost.com/images/WARNpics/cant%20read.jpg) If you can't read the instructions, how could you read the thing that tells you not to use it if you can't read the instructions?

Keep Out of Children. (http://luckypuppy.bravehost.com//images/WARNpics/olfa_knife.jpg) I think there should be a 'reach of' somwhere in there. This one cracked me up. Asian labels. Translations are awesome.

100% Cotton. (http://luckypuppy.bravehost.com//images/WARNpics/wife.jpg) True, true.

Extinguishing the Candle. (http://luckypuppy.bravehost.com//images/WARNpics/candle.bmp) To steal the joke: Nah, I was gonna use the fire extinguisher.

Cleaning CD's. (http://luckypuppy.bravehost.com//images/WARNpics/cd_cleaning.jpg) You gotta love typos.

Suffocation Risk. (http://luckypuppy.bravehost.com//images/WARNpics/suffocation.jpg) Naw. Really?

Huh. (http://luckypuppy.bravehost.com//images/WARNpics/mobile_phone.jpg) That's interesting. I wasn't aware anyone had feelings besides me. It's always the Asian labels that are funniest.

Washing Machine. (http://luckypuppy.bravehost.com/images/WARNpics/WashingMachineLabel500.jpg) What a handy diagram. Apparently, when the door is opened, it's facing out. When closed, it's not. Hmm.

No pictures for these ones except examples. Sorry.

1. http://luckypuppy.bravehost.com/images/WARNpics/bicycle.jpg
"Removing the wheel can influence the performance of the bicycle"

2. http://luckypuppy.bravehost.com/images/WARNpics/hammer.jpg

3. http://luckypuppy.bravehost.com/images/WARNpics/toilet%20brush.jpg

BEST BEFORE: 11.11.2222
made in Austria

Um...haven't tried to eat my shoelaces before, but now I know not to. Thank goodness for warning labels.[/steal]
21. On a calendar: Cardboard is not for eating.
22. In a Japanese hotel: You are entitled to take full advantage of the cleaning maids. (You gotta love Asian labels.)
23. An Interstate Sign: State Prison: Do Not Stop For Hitchhikers

I'll stop and let the rest of you find some, but I'll come back later with more. This thread was a good idea...cheered me up xP

I have some inappropriate ones. If you PM me, I'll show them to you XD

On a Peanut Butter spread:

On a packet of nuts:

People will kill themselves to sue, so the big companies have to stop it from happening. They could lose a lot of money if some idiot eats nuts while he's allergic to them and sues.

January 26th, 2009, 4:09 PM
i bught some peanuts and then saw this sign : warning if allergic to peanuts don't eat

January 26th, 2009, 4:22 PM
It's not really a warning, but the speed limit signs in the U.S. state of Montana used to read "Reasonable & Prudent." XDD

As for warnings, I find the ones on cigarettes both disgusting and obvious. I know they're put there to discourage people from buying them, but I don't think it is doing much.

January 26th, 2009, 4:38 PM
Okay, I couldn't stop laghing. Keep going, this is great. And know more of the nut thing. It's old.

January 26th, 2009, 6:56 PM

Those warnings crack me up every single time I see them.

lol - "do not stick four leaf clovers in the vents on your Wii console"




yes, it does indeed say "Caution, Zombies Ahead"

at least it stops the stupid questions

Where are we, exactly? The amazon rainforest?


the sad thing is, he's serious

I went to a fast food restaurant, and I ordered a burger.

The box said "Warning: May be hot"

Another was when I was on a plane and I got some peanuts. The wrapper said "Warning, may contain traces of nuts. Do not eat if allergic to." XDD;

My favorite here has to be:
Warning condoms stop pregnancy use only when needed.

Otherwise here are some funny signs.

January 27th, 2009, 11:28 AM
the is one place that really irritates me. tesco because they have put on absolutely every thing [ it think the will put this on their clothes next] warning may contain traces of nuts. example: on a bottle of water
recipe no nuts
factory no nuts
ingredients may contain traces of nuts
i'm sorry but how exactly can water contain nuts, it's not as if people with nut allergies [ this includes me] are going to sue tesco because there is a 1 in a million chance that they have a nut reaction while drinking water bought from tesco.

This is one sign I took that seemed so funny. XD I loved it so much so I took a picture of it and it counts as being one of those weird signs. XD

January 27th, 2009, 12:41 PM
I remember i once saw on the back of a mcvities lorry

"warning no jaffa cakes contained in this vehicle overnight"

hmmmm... why would someone nick a lorry load of jaffa cakes?

January 27th, 2009, 12:45 PM
Guys this is "dumb warning labels", not so much "funny warning labels" and definitely not "funny signs".

January 27th, 2009, 1:00 PM
Jar of Peanuts: Warning: Contains Nuts

Blanket: Warning: Not to be used as protection from a tornado.

Lights: WarningL For outdoor or indoor use only.

I think the dumbest one I've ever heard of was a label on a hairdryer which said "CAUTION: Do not use in bathtub. Do not use while sleeping."

January 27th, 2009, 1:08 PM
Guys this is "dumb warning labels", not so much "funny warning labels" and definitely not "funny signs".

Yes, origanaly this was for "dumb warnning labels", but, if it is allowed, I would like to expand it to include all redicules signs, labels, ect. One kind of label is banned though. NO MORE LABELS SAYING WARNNING: MAY CONTAIN NUTS
