I first read this at my friend's house a few months ago and thought it was pretty funny. It's a great little book for your coffee table. Now I find myself reading warning labels on products all the time, to see if I can find any funny ones like the labels mentioned in this book!

Bob Dorigo Jones is the founder of M-Law, a lawsuit watch group in Michigan that sponsors the yearly 'Wacky Warning Labels' contest. I heard about the current contest on television and thought this book might be fun.

It is.

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.

Actual warning labels on products for dumb people. Loads of laughs and interesting things to think about. Good book to just make you wonder why there are these odd labels on products now a days.

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!

This book is okay. I thought it would have been better, but for a cheap book, its not bad.

Warning:

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

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? This is one book that can never be finished!!
