The Nusance Segment

If every cost that made up the price of a product was listed, “stupid people’ would be on there somewhere.
On every product in your house, you will find a warning label. On the shampoo bottle I have in my hand, there are two paragraphs explaining what not to do with it. No one expects the stupid to read these labels, of course. Someone dumb enough to drink shampoo or shove the bottle up their arse is not going to read the warning label.

Your Say

I was unable to read the warning label in time because I had my head up my arse.

The "best" I've seen was the bag of peanuts, clearly labeled as such, that also carried the inscription, "WARNING: CONTAINS NUTS".

My wife once showed me a bottle of flea spray that said "do not use in an electrical outlet".

I would pay money to watch that one.

I once bought a large beach ball for the pool that had various primary colored panels and one white panel that was slammed with paragraphs of warnings, in 6 languages. Looked atrocious, so I stuck a knife in it then threw it away. Later, my brother told me WD40 would have erased the verbage.

Now, see, if lemon Pledge just had a warning-
"NOT for use on linoleum "wooden" print floors in households where owners INSIST that guests remove their shoes at the door."

Thanks for highlighting the warning about not ironing your shirt while wearing it. It turns out that I have been doing it wrong all these years. Alas, it is too late to avoid all those burn marks on my chest, but now at least I will not have to make any more expensive trips to the ER.
