I found this, but you can add to it before I pass it on.
Doomed By Stupidity

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

1. On Sears hairdryer: "Do not use while sleeping".
[Gee, that's the only time I have to work on my hair]

2. On a bag of Fritos: "You could be winner! No purchase necessary Details inside". [Evidently, the shoplifter special]

3. On a bar of Dial soap: "Directions: Use like regular soap."
[And that would be how...?]

4. On some Swanson frozen dinners: "Serving suggestions: Defrost. [But it's "just" a suggestion]

5. On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom of box): "Do not turn upside down". [Oops, too late!]

6. On Marks Spencer Bread Pudding: "Product will be hot after heating". [As sure as night follows the day...]

7. On packaging for a Rowenta iron: "Do not iron clothes on body" [But wouldn't this save even more time?]

8. On Boot's Children's 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

9. On Nytol Sleep Aid: "Warning: May cause drowsiness"
[One would hope]

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

11. On a Japanese food processor: "Not to be used for the other use". [I gotta admit, I'm curious]

12. On Sainsbury's peanuts: "Warning: Contains nuts". [NEWS FLASH]

13. On an American Airlines packet of nuts: "Instructions: open packet, eat nuts."

14. On a child's Superman costume: Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly".
[I don't blame the company. I blame parents for this one!]
I forget the brand, but it was for rectal thermometers. The fine print said, "Factory tested". (Is anyone looking for a job in quality control?)

AND THE WINNER IS.............Beetlebomb.

(how many remember THAT reference?) ((No fair, cheating on THAT one, it's questioning memory.))

No Bones, it wasn't cheating. It was being more professionally aware, and knowing where to find the proper tools to get the job done.

(For reasons known only to us, I would have preferred a few more entries before you slammed the door.)
