I couldn't resist forwarding this to you guys
EVER WONDER where we are headed...
...why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin?
...why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed?
...why you don't ever see the headline "Psychic Wins Lottery"?
...why "abbreviated" is such a long word?
...why doctors call what they do "practice"?
...why you have to click on "Start" to stop Windows 98?
...why lemon juice is made with artificial flavor, while dishwashing liquid
is made with real lemons?
...why the man who invests all your money is called a broker?
...why there isn't mouse-flavoured cat food?
...who tastes dog food when it has a "new &improved" flavour?
...why Noah didn't swat those two mosquitoes?
...why they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?
...why they don't make the whole plane out of the material used for the
indestructible black box ?
...why sheep don't shrink when it rains?
...why they are called apartments when they are all stuck together?
...if con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?
...why they call the airport "the terminal" if flying is so safe?
In case you need further proof that the human race is doomed because of
stupidity, here are some actual label instructions on consumer goods.
On a Myer hairdryer: Do not use while sleeping. (darn, and that's the only
time I have to work on my hair).
On a bag of Chips: You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details

On a bar of Palmolive soap: "Directions: Use like regular soap." (and that

(well...duh, a bit late, huh)!
On Marks &Spencer Bread Pudding: "Product will be hot after heating."
(...and you thought????...)
On packaging for a K-Mart iron: "Do not iron clothes on body." (but wouldn't
this save me more time?)
On Boot's Children Cough Medicine:"Do not drive a car or operate machinery

On Nytol Sleep Aid: "Warning: May cause drowsiness." (and...I'm taking this
On most brands of Christmas lights: "For indoor or outdoor use only." (as
On a Japanese food processor: "Not to be used for the other use." (now,
somebody out there, help me on this. I'm a bit curious.)
On Nobby's peanuts: "Warning: contains nuts." (talk about a news flash!)
On an American Airlines packet of nuts: "Instructions: Open packet, eat
nuts." (Step 3: maybe, uh...fly Delta?)
I don't blame the company. I blame the parents for this one: 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

Now that you've smiled at least once, it's your turn to spread the stupidity
