Stating the bl****ng obvious!

Yes- these instructions are genuine!

On a Sears hairdryer: "Do not use while sleeping".

On a bag of Fritos: "You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside".

On a bar of Dial soap: "Directions: Use like regular soap."

On some Swanson frozen dinners: "Serving suggestion: Defrost."

On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom): "Do not turn upside down."

On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding: "Product will be hot after heating."

On packaging for a Rowenta iron: "Do not iron clothes on body."

On Boot's Childrens Cough Medicine: "Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication."

On Nytol Sleep Aid: "Warning: May cause drowsiness."

On most brands of Christmas lights: "For indoor or outdoor use only."

On a Japanese food processor: "Not to be used for the other use."

On a packet of Sunsbury's peanuts: "Warning: contains nuts."

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

On a child's Superman costume: "Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly."

On a Swedish chainsaw: "Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals."

Thanks once again to my friend Jacqui in Spain for this list. xx

  8. To overstate the obvious, has to make you laugh every time. It is a wonder children come out with the most blatantly obvious statments after learning to read modern day packages.

    Still laughing so hard my sides are hurt.
