Okay for Levitating, but Not Floating

The Parent Bloggers Network is having a Wacky Warning Label Contest. I couldn't resist entering, of course, because of the hilarious warning label on a swim mask one of the kids got this summer. Remember, it's a mask, okay? Say it with me, "A mask." Very good! And here's the warning.

How stupid does someone have to be to think that a mask is a lifesaving device? Apparently not as stupid as the person designing the warning label.

Guess who is judging the contest? A panel of judges from Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse! You've got to love their URL: http://www.sickoflawsuits.com/. I'm sure you've seen some dumb-ass warning labels out there. Go find them, post them, and win a decent chunk of change and the accolades from some very smart folks. And from me, too. The contest ends Friday, so drop everything -- but not on your toes -- and enter.

[You're thinking I'm getting paid for this, aren't you? You're thinking I've succumbed to sponsored posts. Nope. I'm just in it for the laughs.]

I bought my new kitty a flea collar this week - the box said, "Harmful if swallowed."

Who swallows a flea collar???

Gotta find that box and take a picture....

Maybe a life saving device if you were an ant....

Amazing, isn't it, the dumb things some people will do and also, some of the warnings put on items as well. Are you going to share whatever you submit for this contest with your readers?

I read something a while back about ridiculous warning labels and one of the ones they referenced was a "Remove baby before folding" warning label on a stroller.

Not a lifesaving device...do not depend on this if your ship runs into an iceberg. Really.
