Re: Stupid signs

On a Nutri-Grain bar wrapper: Win £5,000 cash! No purchase neccesary. All details inside pack.
That's right, go and encourage shoplifting!

On a Tesco's dessert (printed on the bottom of the box): Do not turn dessert upside down.
Too late!

On an almond and peanut cake: Warning - contains nuts.
Duh!

Re: Stupid signs

On Boot's Children Cough Medicine:"Do not drive a car or operate machinery
after taking this medication." (We could do a lot to reduce the rate of
construction accidents if we could just get those 5-year-olds with head-colds off
those forklifts.)

Re: Stupid signs

These were actual signs in Africa:

Open seven days a week plus now open weekends!

If you can't read, you need to sign up for reading lessons now.

If this sign is under water this road is impassable and there has been a flood.

And take a look at this...[click]

Re: Stupid signs

On Boot's children's cough medicine:
"Do not drive car or operate machinery."

On a Korean kitchen knife:
"Warning: Keep out of children"

On a bag of Fritos:
"You could be a winner!
No purchase necessary.
Detail inside."



Some are deliberately humorous.

On a laser pointer:
"Do not look into laser with remaining eye."

Sign in a high-explosive storage area:
"This is a no smoking area.
If you must smoke, please exit quickly
through the hole that will appear in the ceiling."

Lol @ Jane - "You just walk through the wall... you can take a run at it if you're feeling nervous, alright?"

(By the way that's from Harry Potter)
