It’s Pretty Obvious

I’m not going to completely blame the lawyers (Hi, sweetie!) for this, but everywhere you go there are labels for the obvious.  If you buy a coffee, the cup will warn: “Contents hot!”  If you pick up a bottle of sunscreen, the label will  state it is “for external use only.”

So the requirement of my municipal garbage collection to label large trash items “for solid waste” is right in step with the trend.   Because for some items– label or not– it’s pretty obvious.

Toilet out for trash

So have you seen any signs or labels lately that made you chuckle?  Share yours in the comments below.

These lawyers sound pretty awesome. And good-looking.

Nice – that’s classic. I love stupidly obvious signs.

at a rest stop off the Maine Turnpike: “snack wisely – snacks are not meal replacements”. I took a picture of the sign, and made a magnet for our fridge!

Ha! ‘Use only as directed’ is one of my favorites.
