When I moved to Phoenix I bought one of those sun shield things to put in my windshield.  It carried the warning, "Do not drive with shied in place."

I few years ago I did the annual John Deere product show Louisville. I was really amused by the safety lables on farm equipment. The yellow signs of dismembered bodies were particularlly compelling. I wish I could find a copy to post.

My family's business is a John Deere dealership -- I have many of these laying around..  Particularily the spare French and Spanish copies they send with certain pieces of equipment.

Didn't Cadbury's just recall 1000's of easter eggs because they forgot to put the may contain traces of nuts warning on them?

Here's one from the manual for ya!  The others could apply to everyone here as well.  The third one goes at monitor beach!  Laughing
What Mikey P says is so true.  I've known a couple older guys who lost an arm in harvest accidents.  One area now that's not just related to farm is ATV's and kids.  People aren't paying attention to the warning signs and letting kids run around on 500# plus machines.  The kid always loses when it rolls on top of him.

Not a warning but still kind of funny:

In one of my audio classes we were discussing hearing safety and protection. So the next class I brought in free cheapie sets of foam earplugs to give out to everyone. One of the other students happened to be reading the bottom of it and it said

ever since litigation really took off in the UK we get companies covering their rears in all sorts of hilarious ways.

The best had to be the packet of peanuts, containing the label:

'Warning: may contain nuts'

The world has, offically, gonr mad!  Very Happy

Don't use cyan, magenta, yellow or black ... I think Pantone owns those.
