What's the funniest thing you've seen on a product label?

Asked by wildflower (11152points) April 18th, 2008 from iPhone

Earlier today I remembered the utterly ridiculous “cape does not enable wearer to fly” that appeared on a Batman costume. What are the funniest ones you’ve ever seen?

On the Southwest Airline bag of peanuts: “Produced in a facility that processes nuts” or something like that. I know it can be a serious allergy, but this particular label always cracks me up. I know they have to put something there, but wouldn’t simply contains peanuts work?

I’ve pointed this out to many SWA flight attendants and none of them (so far) have been aware of the label.

I also just bought a rubber band ball from Staples and on the label it states:
USES:
Rubber bands may be used for a wide variety of uses.

My ex worked at a salon that carried a hair product called Fiber Grease. It’s from Japan and is like 35 bucks. The translations are hilarious.
For example: ‘Special Making!’ or ‘Water Type’

I remember there being more that you can’t see in the picture.

Note that this particular urban legend is “true”. The bag label really does say “We are sorry our president is an idiot. We did not vote for him.”

Company is in Seattle, tag is in French. I own one, so can confirm!

I liked the potato chips that were out for a while that said, on the front of the bag, “May cause ANAL LEAKAGE”
