Do I even need to write anything else? Why is that showing on my box of Ellio's pizza?

I've heard of this one, though I've never seen it.

On a bottle of sleeping pills - May cause drowsiness.

Warning: May Contain Nuts on a packet of peanuts.

Seriously.

Peanuts are not nuts in a botanical sense but they are nuts in a diet sense. It's weird how that works. And I got a packet of peanuts that said that when I was on a plane a few months back.

some woman's cat went out in the rain, she put it in the microwave to dry.
It died (duh).
She sued the microwave company.
She WON.
Now they explicitly mention you shouldn't put a cat in the microwave.

^^lol are you freakin serious?

what, because the microwave didn't have a caution sticker that said "DO NOT PUT CATS IN MICROWAVES"

she should have lost i mean, honestly, she must have no common sense at all.

its like "lady, there is such thing as a towel, or if you have to use an electrical appliance...A BLOW DRYER"

Urban legend. (http://www.snopes.com/horrors/techno/micropet.htm)

I like the addition of the "...and she sued and won.", as it takes an old urban legend that fed off of our fear of new technology and gives it a new twist, feeding off our belief in an over-litigious society. In fact, most crazy lawsuits you hear about are either fabricated, dismissed or diminished, but the cost of defending against even the most baseless of litigation (not the mention the offchance of actually losing one) is enough for companies to put rather silly disclaimers on their products in an attempt to pre-empt them.

Those are about wrong translations.

- on clothes it was written : "lever à l'enfer" which means "to raise in hell".
- My friend had a plant (a "cactus", no idea if it's the same in English?) and it was written in French : "fumer modérément" which means "smoke moderately".

Man Mota, I realise now this snopes site is actually very informative--in terms of making you very aware of what's happening around you.

I also think it inheritently strokes one's ego in a subtle way to read of fools so hey more fun to it.

What type of cactus was it? Those instructions might not have been so far off.

And yeah, I like snopes a lot. It's very trustworthy and I use the information I've gleaned from there about once a week, which is more than I can say about most of my classes.

Because some tardball would try to sue because of scorched fingers. Even though such a suit would be thrown out of court it would waste the time of the Ellio's people to have to show up in court. It's much easier just to print one line on each box.

They do say that. But that's not the same as the other things in this thread. And they can cause headaches indeed, but headaches & migraines are not the same, plus they can cause rebound headaches//migraines when you take them too often.

I heard it from J Leno or some thing about super man costumes say “wearing this does not enable you to fly’

They need to put warning labels on things so when morons end up hurting them selves they can’t sue.

You're right to complain. It should obviously say "may become hot when cooked". I've had cold cooked pizza many times.

I just don't get it when they say warning: may contain something, when it's other thing. They gotta say if it contains or not, how come it may contain? when they say it, it's like, there are some that they didn't put, and other they did

I don't know if this really counts, but there have been toys.. like, McDonald's toys (god, I feel like a hamburger now), that were the size of my entire fucking hand... & on the package it said; "do not try to swallow". even with MY mouth/jaws/etc.. I wouldn't even attempt to put it halfway my mouth.

That's exactly what it is. There are certain foods where if you read the ingredients it might say "Soybean oil and/or vegetable oil and/or peanut oil" and they use basically whichever one was available for the least amount of money, hence why some things "may contain peanuts".

I would try putting something like that in my mouth just as a challenge. I wouldn't actually try swallowing it though. That's just stupid.

I once did try to put it into my mouth. (I think.. I might have been drunk) I mean, to me it's a challenge, because my mouth is just rather.. big.. but.. imagine a six year old, reading that.. thinking; "what the fuck? I could swallow that??? LET'S TRY!" that's just wrong. so wrong. that just *has* to deform children's faces.

Why do you have to be drunk to do something like that? I do things like that sober constantly.

I could just see some kid actually managing to swallow it and you can see like a big, car-shaped bulge in his throat or something. He's still alive though because the windows were down when he swallowed it so he still has an way to get air.

bd007h; I once accidently touched one. this is rather typically me, but we were in Switzerland (where they put rather a lot of electricity on those things, or else it won't disturb their supercows) & I'd told my mother they hardly ever actually turn those things on. because I'd touched one before & it went perfectly well. so I grabbed it, with both hands, & just.. I thought my heart stopped for a second. holy mother of god, what a thick skin those cows must have. I can't even imagine the sound *they* make when touching it, when I already squealed like a little fried chicken.

I felt awful after touching an electric plug that was halfway in. I just can't imagine cow-grade electrocution. must be awful.

I come from a long line of peasants. Most farmers test those fences with a blade of grass. You just stick it on and you get a mild shock. It was the funniest thing ever as a kid.
