Dumbest Product Warnings That Make you Question Human Intelligence

Human intelligence is a fascinating thing. We can operate complex machinery, created advanced technology, and are continuously moving forward. But at times, some occurrences cause us to question the mere existence of human intelligence.

One of these is the fact that to this day, the makers of some of the today’s everyday products are forced to label their items with warnings that are sad, confusing, and just plain dumb.

Yes, it is important that you know this item is non-flammable as not knowing could result in not being burned. This label was found on an unknown fire extinguisher, which only adds to the peculiarity.

It would be a shame if you unknowingly gave a rat cancer instead of poisoning them. Although, it was tested on rats, and the item is meant to kill rats. To be fair, it is intended to warn humans to…not eat the rat poison because it causes cancer.

May Cause Cancer #2

You don’t say? It is quite unbelievable that it is a necessity for cigarette companies to warn consumers that their products may cause cancer. Is it possible that there are humans today that are still unaware of the fact?

Do Not Turn Upside-Down

This is a legit warning. Unless printed on the bottom of the box. In this case, it would be impossible to heed the warning due to its placement. It’s a lose-lose situation. (Note: back of box was not shown for Tiramisu safety reasons)

May Cause Drowsiness

Make sure that your dog does not operate machinery after taking this medicine. This warning is often given on human prescriptions. It’s not often that it is shown on your doggie’s medicine.

How many items can you use while sleeping? Not that many, and certainly not a hair dryer. Still, who wouldn’t advise you not to use a hairdryer while sleeping? It is a pretty bad idea.

Do Not Eat

To be fair, the makers must label foods with any allergy warnings that the food has. But, when you label a carton of eggs with “Contains: Eggs” then you can’t be offended by the internet’s backlash.

Do Not Insert Swab into Ear Canal
