Less than intelligent warning labels

At the doctor office today and this topic came up. Warning labels. Lets make a list of all the ones we have actually seen.

"Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly." -- On a child sized Superman costume.

I bought some new spatulas recently that were wrapped in plastic. There was sticker on them that said something like: remove wrapping before use. We all know someone had to not do that for that sticker to be on them.

I also don't remember the whole saying, but it goes something like: I'm not saying to kill all the stupid people, just remove the warning labels and let the problem resolve itself.

Brings to mind the story of the complaints, that a certain company got after removing the serving instructions from their cans of , baked beans.
Instructions , basically said.
" This product is fully cooked, it can be eaten cold or heated to taste before serving"

While I find these kind of signs funny, I also think it's sad. Sad that people's behaviors require such signs, sad that courts and our legal system make them necessary, and most of all, sad that it continues to weaken the gene pool that these dimwits are allowed to live and reproduce.

On a size 3-4-Y T Shirt:
Wash inside out
Remove child before washing
Made in China


On a paper tag on the nylon string tying a new pair of Walmart shoes together:
WARNING: Remove before attempting to walk!
(After I removed the tag the dang string still tripped me)!

Very similar with the DO NOT FEED THE BEARS signs in Yellowstone National Park, Stupid is as stupid does!

Having taken folks on tours and hikes in Yellowstone for over 20 years, I always tell them to stay 100' away and WATCH THE BISON'S TAIL. When the tail is raised it either means poop, gas, or agitation. If you don't see or hear the first two, then GET AWAY. In this video, they got too close and didn't watch the tail.




I was present near Canyon in YNP when a ranger had to stop a father from trying to put their 3 yr old on the back of an elk for a photo.
