In fact, it is very, very funny - until you realize that lawyers and really stupid people have brought us to the point of needing these warning labels at all.
For example, the label on the iron-on T-shirt decal in a box of cereal warns "Caution: Do not iron while wearing shirt". Duh . . .
Or how about the label on a box containing slippers named the same as a regional culinary delicacy: "Do not eat". It is not clear, says the author, whether the warning applies to the box or the slippers.
A snow thrower - you know, those good sized machines that blow snow off your sidewalks and driveways carries a stern warning: "Do not use snow thrower on roof".
Okay, you get the picture.
There are about 100 of these in the book and all of them are doozies and will leave you laughing - and maybe shaking your head in sadness that such warnings are needed at all.
I originally bought this for myself and liked it so much that I bought 2 more as Christmas gifts.
This book is not that funny. They don't show a picture of the product or the label and really only tell you what the label said and then have some "witty" commentary about it. Do not purchase this book with high hopes, as it may lead to depression or other afflictions. People with limited budgets should consult their banker before purchasing for any amout

Loved this book, and all the hillarious warnings out there! Reminded me of the rediculous laws that are still on the books in some states!Published on March 9, 2014 by Donna Dawson
Don't waste your bucks on this book. Though it had potential, it turned out to be no more than a collection of product warning labels with occasional thin commentary.Published on July 31, 2007 by J. Mohr
This is a cute book, but I found myself wanting more after I had read it. It "felt" incomplete, but how can you ever create a book with ALL the stupid labels? Read morePublished on May 20, 2007 by Jean H. Isham
