Insane Product Warning Labels

Oh Hai!

I have been so busy lately that I have not had time to think about posting.  It is supposed to be my summer vacation, but I am hosting my visiting parents, going to an education conference in Atlanta, babysitting a 12 year old and a 5 year old (my mom had three kids, I don’t know how she managed it), and getting prepared to sell my artism at the Puyallup, WA Farmer’s Market.  I have not even had time to think about planning my lessons for next year.  That is extremely important because I am teaching two subjects I have never taught before.  I will start that after I take my niece on her sixth grade graduation trip that I promised her.

But I suppose all that is beside the point.  I have had time to look up some simply crazy warning labels that are posted on honest to goodness real products.  I know the one on the Dremel Drill is real because I just bought one.  As clear as day in the warning section it says “this product is not to be used as a dental drill or for any other medical purposes.”  I wonder just what  lawsuit caused the company to put that warning label on their products.  It’s a crazy world out there.  Here are some more real life product warning labels.
