Name the stupidest warning you came across on a product or instructions
On packets of Peanuts it contains a warning, This product contains nuts.
It's funny when you replace a cartridge for your laser printer and read on the toner cartridge "Do not eat toner." As if it's normal that people feed on stuff around them when they get hungry
I do find it funny, if I buy a coffee to go, and on the cup I read: "Caution! Coffee is hot." I presume if I buy a coffee. Actually.
When I was recently in India, the air was heavily polluted by the exhaust gases of cars and motorcycles. At a hotel door, right on the street, I found a sign saying: "Do not smoke". In a way, that was ridiculous.
At one time, many items came with a label warning purchasers never to remove the label. Usually the label was ugly and the reason for the label, if indeed there even was one, was so banal that the first thing everyone did was cut the label off! My wife tells me that somethings still come with these labels but, tellingly, she can't tell me what's on them!
How about the "recursive escalator sign" ...

It is a sign about the sign itself?
Not exactly a product, but I always find it hilarious when ads for medicines straight up say, "you can totally die from taking this" and expect to get customers.
Not a warning,but I once saw a sign that said "mechanic repair". I could think of a few mechanics who have worked on my vehicles who were in need of this.
By a lake in Florida, " Do not harrass the aligators". It never crossed my mind.
The best sign i've seen for ages
This is a Private Sign
