Are there any warning/instruction labels that you have read that just made you go "Huh?"

Here's a couple that I saw today:

On a container of Superman Bath Paint: "Keep away from children."

On the back of Jergen's hand and body soap: "Use like regular soap."

Oh yes

On a bottle of full cream Jersey milk:

Warning - contains milk!!!

Yes, really.

On a bag of peanuts:

May contain nuts

I should hope so!

I love the one on Christmas lights "For indoor or outdoor use only" - gee does that mean I can't use them in another dimension?

it's always the cigarette advisory for me:

Government Warning: Cigarette smoking is dangerous to your health....now, why is it that a lot of people turn into a chimney?

On my lighter:

Warning: Ignite lighter away from face.

With all due respect to KTC, how in the world am I supposed to write like my face is on fire if I pay attention to that?

One of the side effects listed on my husband's prescription migraine medication:

May cause headaches.

So, uh, if it doesn't work for him does that just mean he's experiencing a side effect?

On my bottle of unscented hairspray, it lists the ingredients including Fragrance. Huh?

This is true- happened today. My through the wall air conditioner was making noises so I called a repairman. A guy came today, looked at it and said it will make it through the season, not to bother replacing it now - wait and buy one at the end of the summer. Fine - so I paid him 50 bucks for a service call and he wrote me a reciept. I just read it now. In his own handwriting (not pre-printed) it says ...

Service call only - $50.00
90 day guarantee

I can only assume that for the next 90 days, I'm guaranteed this guy won't show up at my house again.

on a bottle of liquid soap:
Please avoid contact with brain and spinal chord.
