These are pretty good....

The best one I've seen is on a bottle opener I have... Its plastic, shaped like a beer glass with a Magnet...

The warning label says:

"For Seeing Only. Not for Eating.

Made in China"

I guess it ain't for opening beers neither...

Toilet Brush Warning Wins Consumer Award

Thu Jan 6, 7:31 AM ET Top Stories - AP

By DAVID N. GOODMAN, Associated Press Writer

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

That admonition was the winner of an anti-lawsuit group's contest for the wackiest consumer warning label of the year.

The sponsor, Michigan Lawsuit Abuse Watch, says the goal is "to reveal how lawsuits, and concern about lawsuits, have created a need for common sense warnings on products."

The $500 first prize went to Ed Gyetvai, of Oldcastle, Ontario, who submitted the toilet-brush label. A $250 second prize went to Matt Johnson, of Naperville, Ill., for a label on a children's scooter that said, "This product moves when used."

A $100 third prize went to Ann Marie Taylor, of Camden, S.C., who submitted a warning from a digital thermometer that said, "Once used rectally, the thermometer should not be used orally."

This year's contest coincides with a drive by President Bush (news - web sites) and congressional Republicans to put caps and other limits on jury awards in liability cases.

"Warning labels are a sign of our lawsuit-plagued times," said group President Robert Dorigo Jones. "From the moment we raise our head in the morning off pillows that bear those famous Do Not Remove warnings, to when we drop back in bed at night, we are overwhelmed with warnings."

The leader of a group that opposes the campaign to limit lawsuits admits that while some warning labels may seem stupid, even dumb warnings can do good.

"There are many cases of warning labels saving lives," said Joanne Doroshow, executive director of the Center for Justice and Democracy in New York. "It's much better to be very cautious ... than to be afraid of being made fun of by a tort reform group."

The Wacky Warning Label Contest is in its eighth year
The best one I've seen is "Do not iron clothes while wearing them."

That's good advice... I've actually seen a guy try to iron his collar while wearing a shirt... problem is, your collar is quite close to your neck... and sure 2nd degree burns...

Of course... this guy wasn't the sharpest knife in the drawer...

We once gave him 4 dollars, a Busch Light, 3 Camel Lights and 2 Marlboro Reds to swallow a goldfish....

.... that had been dead for ten days.
