When people sue or threaten to sue, companies have to put some of the dumbest warning labels on their products or commercials. Here a lot of dumb ones.

Speaking of being sued, this list was shamelessly stolen from www.rinkworks.com, for the enjoyment of listologists.

Funny list,I think I wet myself.

"Do not look into laser with remaining eye." Huwahhh?

More or less a byproduct of our sue-happy society. "It didn't say I couldn't put it in my eyes; how was I supposed to know it would hurt?"

True that, yo.
