    The Icon War

    Check out this link.

    Pretty funny.

    Heres some others

    Some examples of why the human race has probably evolved as far as possible. These are actual instruction labels on consumer goods...

    On Sears hairdryer:
    Do not use while sleeping.
    (Gee, that's the only time I have to work on my hair!)

    On a bag of Fritos:
    You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside.
    (The shoplifter special!)

    On a bar of Dial soap:
    Directions: Use like regular soap.
    (and that would be how?)

    On some Swann frozen dinners:
    Serving suggestion: Defrost.
    (But it's 'just' a suggestion!)

    On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert: (printed on bottom of the box)
    Do not turn upside down.
    (Too late! you lose!)

    On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding:
    Product will be hot after heating.
    (Are you sure? Let's experiment.)

    On packaging for a Rowenta iron:
    Do not iron clothes on body.
    (But wouldn't that save more time?)(Whose body?)

    On Boot's Children's cough medicine:
    Do not drive car or operate machinery.
    (We could do a lot to reduce the construction accidents if we just kept those 5 year olds off those fork lifts.)

    On Nytol sleep aid:
    Warning: may cause drowsiness.
    (One would hope!)

    On a Korean kitchen knife:
    Warning: keep out of children.
    (hmm...something must have gotten lost in the translation...)

    On a string of Christmas lights:
    For indoor or outdoor use only.
    (As opposed to use in outer space.)

    On a food processor:
    Not to be used for the other use.
    (Now I'm curious.)

    On Sainsbury's peanuts:
    Warning: contains nuts.
    (but no peas?)

    On an American Airlines packet of nuts:
    Instructions: open packet, eat nuts.
    (somebody got paid big bucks to write this one...)

    On a Swedish chainsaw:
    Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands.
    (Raise your hand if you've tried this...)

    On a child's Superman costume:
    Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly.
    (Oh go ahead! That's right, destroy a universal childhood belief.)
    I dont' normally post in tech humor but this stuff was funny. lol

    Merry Christmas Cheyenne,

    On a bit of US field equipment:

    "this side towards the enemy"

    It is called a claymore mine

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?
