This Product Contains Nuts

I once did a paper review on the local BBC radio station with a friend Lucy and we revealed a number of strange instructions that appeared on packaging for a variety of products and I think it's worth having a giggle at the best of them:

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

On a knife sharpener:
Caution: knives are sharp.

(The all time classic) On Sainsbury's peanuts:
Warning: Contains nuts.

Printed on the bottom of Tesco Tiramisu dessert:
Do not turn upside down.

(The most bizarre) On a Swedish chainsaw:
Do not attempt to stop chainsaw with hands or genitals. (

On a rifle packaging from Japan:
Warning - the use of this weapon may have fatal consequences.

Talk about stating the bleedin' obvious!

Elbert Hubbard once said, "Don't take life too seriously - you'll never get out of it alive!"
