There are some things that just need to be said. Even if that thing is super obvious, there's always that one person that needs it as a reminder. What can we say, some people are just clueless. Here are some of the silliest and seemingly unnecessary clarifications that have become a requirement- for some reason.
u/gleico asked: What only exists because of people's stupidity?
This needed to be said?
The warning on strollers, "Do not collapse while infant is seated".
I once saw a picture of a onesie for a baby from another country, don't remember where, believe it was somewhere in Asia. Anyway, the tag had a warning on it written in broken English. Said something along the lines of, "Warning: remove infant before microwaving." You just know that, even with the poor translation, something really stupid had to happen to need that tag.
You know someone needed this.Giphy
The labels on Superman costumes that say 'Wearing this does not enable you to fly'.
You thought as you decided to read the label of your new Superman costume while you're free falling off a 50 story roof and you can't seem to activate the flight function of your new gear
I think they probably know this.
The f*cking message on my in dash display on my Honda Fit.
YES I KNOW I AM RESPONSIBLE FOR THE OPERATION OF THIS MOTOR VEHICLE.
Imagine the car not telling me that every time I start it, me getting in an accident, and suing Honda for NOT telling me that I'm responsible for the car I'm driving?
I worked at Cabela's for years and they carry a product called "The Butt Out" and its a tool a hunter would use to remove the anus from a deer. On the back of the packaging in the bottom corner is a warning stating "Not for sexual use".
I'd hope so.Giphy
Fruit roll boxes that warn "Remove plastic wrap before eating".
You're supposed to remove those?
Please don't do this.
The warning sticker on lawn mowers telling you not to touch the blades while they are in motion.
Many warning labels in general. There are toilet brushes with warnings saying "Not for personal hygiene" on them.
This should be obvious.Giphy
The tag on the iron that says "Do not iron clothes while wearing them."
"I'm late for work but my shirt is too wrinkled, let me just press the iron against myself, how bad could it be?"
Not a bath bomb.
Warning labels on electric appliances warning you not to use them in a bathtub.
Don't tell me how to use my bath bombs.
California's Prop 65.
It says everything sold in California must have a label warning consumers that the product is made with ingredients/components known by the state of California to cause birth defects or cancer. Unless the seller can prove that the item does not contain such components.
However, nobody can actually say if anything causes cancer or not. So if you sell something in California, you must either pay a laboratory to test everything in your product, then provide reports stating that each element does not cause cancer.
OR you can buy a 1 cent sticker and slap it on your packaging. As a result everything sold in California, EVERYTHING, has that sticker on it. Because why wouldn't you just slap the sticker on?
We voted for this.
