Okay, NOW I Get it!

After four years of watching Trump-humpers in action, I now understand why some hairdryers come with the warning “Do not use while sleeping or showering”, why some children's clothes are clearly labelled “Remove child before laundering”, and some shirts come with the warning “Do not iron while wearing”.

I used to wonder who these labels were intended for – now I know.

2. If some of these folks had to decide whether to breathe in first or...

...out first, they would die before they could make up their minds.

It is unfortunate that no one needs written instructions about copulation.. If they did, there would be fewer morons reproducing. They wouldn’t be able to figure it out.

7. You made me snort wine out of my nose, LOL!

Damn, that really burns the sinuses.

You're absolutely right, though. Some of the dumbest damn 'warnings' I've seen have made my intelligence skip a beat. Example: I bought a step ladder that had a warning on the TOP STEP that said (I kid you not): "Do not attempt to step higher than this step."

W.T.F. ????

Sad to say, many of our fellow citizens are stupid as shit.
And yes, these warning ARE made for them.
Worse yet, many of them vote.

8. It has been my experience that when a sheet of product safety warnings says

 

something like:

"Do not hold product in your hand while inserting head in bucket and sticking fork into electrical outlet"

It is usually because some moron actually did that and sued them over it, since he wasn't warned not to attempt that act.

52. Yes it's true but ...

... these companies don't care about the morons who do stupid stuff. They care about the liability lawsuits when the stupid morons hire lawyers who sometimes win their cases. It's all about liability.

You see it's really the greedy lawyers who drive all this, and they're the ones who have ruined our country.

I kept the package for the laughs. It's clear, now, why that was a necessary warning.

..to try to sweep anything be something of an exercise in futility? And are we talking ashes from an outdoor grill, from your Uncle Joe, or what?

33. There was no explanation on the package.

It was a set of bits from Harbor Freight a few years ago. Drill Master Item 01800, 13-piece bit set, 1/16 inch through 1/4 inch.


1. Keep away from children under the aga [sic] of 5.
2. Do not use to sweep ashes.
3. Inspect before use; do not use if parts loose or damaged.
4. Wear ANSI-approved safety goggles when adjusting.
Save these warnings.


I hearby affirm that I have adhered to all of these warnings. (Although I confess I've never adjusted the bits and therefore never needed to heed #4. )
