    My most recent sighting , and entry in the "Do people really need this warning?" contest.

    At the pumpkin rack of a grocery store:

    WARNING! Pumpkins are heavy, and may roll away unexpectedly!


    I kid you not! :rofl::whistling::rofl: Cheers.

    Sadly, yes, there are entirely too many people who DO need that warning.

    But if we removed that warning the problem might take care of itself. Just saying...:whistling:

    Every stupid warning sign you see is there because someone did it!

    The sign on the toilet brush says it best: "Do not use for personal hygiene."

    I'd like to see the dumb ass that filed that lawsuit.

    I remember one on a lawn mower that said:

    Do not use this mower as to trim hedges. . . :faint:

    I bought a plastic storage container one time and inside the lid was a picture of a child sitting inside the container with the standard red circle and line through symbol. IMHO anybody who needs to be reminded that you shouldn't store your kids in these plastic containers has no business being a parent in the first place.

    ETA: Here is a link to that sign

    Some of you may remember CJLandry around these parts.

    He always said that stupid is supposed to be fatal. We spend a ton of time, money and engineering trying to make stupid not fatal... but every once in a while the sun shines through the clouds and stupid does what it's supposed to do.

    My personal favorite was a warning sticker on a lawnmower I bought several years back. It said "Do not attempt to use this mower to trim hedges or trees."

    And of course that label wouldn't be there unless some true genius had actually picked up a running lawnmower and tried to trim his hedges with it!

    And then there are the poorly translated warning labels. There's a knife from Korea with the warning "Warning, keep knife out of children." xD

    OK... number one - why would you stop an idiot from removing him / herself from the gene pool.

    Also - why aren't you at your post?
