Once in a while we totally misunderstand what is going on around us just like Philemon didn't think the garland was edible while Joe on the other hand though Philemon might mistake the garland as a relish.
I'm sure something similar has happened to all of us. Some warnings seem totally unnecessary, especially on product labels today. Here are a few real examples.
❖"Do not iron clothes on body." -- On packaging for a Rowenta iron. ❖ "Do not drive car or operate machinery." -- On Boot's children's cough medicine. ❖ "For indoor or outdoor use only." -- On a string of Christmas lights. ❖ "Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly." -- On a child sized Superman costume.
Of course not all warnings are silly,
but it's always fun to share those that are.
I also say "duh" about the ads big pharma puts on TV when they say "Don't take XYZ if you are allergic to XYZ" and when the list of possible problems is twice as long as the benefits list... especially when that list includes death as a possible side effect.
