Talk about the obvious
I've always read about product warnings that sound like they were written for Martians and have always chuckled to myself at the warning on airline peanut bags that read "Warning: MAY contain peanuts." It's a freaking bag of peanuts!
Then there is the stroller warning "Remove child before folding." What freak of nature tried to do it otherwise that they had to put that warning there?
Last night I discovered one more:
On a box of individually wrapped Mrs. Field's cookies "Important: Remove cookies from wrapper before microwaving." Is today's consumer this dumb that they have to include this warning to cover their butts, just in case some dimwit microwaves it with the plastic wrapper and then sues the company for selling a bad-tasting product?
