    In case you needed further proof that the human race is doomed by stupidity, here are some actual label instructions found on consumer goods:

    On a Sears hairdryer: Do not use while sleeping.

    On a bag of Fritos: You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside. (The shoplifter special.)

    On a bar of Dial soap: Directions: Use like regular soap.

    On a Swann frozen dinners: Serving suggestion: Defrost. (But it's just a suggestion.)

    On Tesco's tiramisu dessert (printed on the bottom of box): Do not turn upside-down.

    On Marks & Spencer bread pudding: Product will be hot after heating.

    On packaging for a Rowenta iron: Do not iron clothes on body.

    On Boot's children's cough medicine: "Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication."

    On Nytol sleep aid: Warning: May cause drowsiness.

    On most brands of Christmas lights: "For indoor or outdoor use only." (As opposed to what?)

    On a Japanese food processor: Not to be used for the other use. (I gotta admit, I'm curious.)

    On Sainsbury's peanuts: "Warning: contains nuts."

    On an American Airlines packet of peanuts: "Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts."

    On a child's Superman costume: "Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly." (I don't blame the company, I blame the parents for this one.)

    On a Swedish chain saw: "Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals."
