Every year, MLAW (Michigan Lawsuit Abuse Watch) holds a contest to find some of the wackiest product labels. Here are some of their favorite labels from the past eight years:
A popular scooter for children warns: “This product moves when used.”
A label on an electric hand blender using for “blending, whipping, chopping and dicing,” warns: “Never remove food or other items from the blades while the product is operating.”
A label on a baby stroller warns: “Remove child before folding.”
A brass fishing lure with a three-pronged hook on the end warns: “Harmful if swallowed.”
A household iron warns users: “Never iron clothes while they are being worn.”
A label on a hair dryer reads, “Never use hair dryer while sleeping.”
A warning on an electric drill made for carpenters cautions: “This product not intended for use as a dental drill.”
The label on a bottle of drain cleaner warns: “If you do not understand, or cannot read, all directions, cautions and warnings, do not use this product.”
A can of self-defense pepper spray warns users: “May irritate eyes.”
A cardboard car sunshield that keeps sun off the dashboard warns, “Do not drive with sunshield in place.”
On a hotel-provided shower cap in a box: fits one head.
Some of those warning labels conjure up some humorous images. Like the last one — can you imagine trying to fit a shower cap onto two heads at once? Ridiculous, huh?
Almost as ridiculous as taking the body of Christ and suggesting it has more than one head. There is one body (Eph. 4:4), and it has only one head. Fortunately, that head is no earthly person or group of people. It is none other than the Son of God Himself.
“And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.” (Colossians 1:18)
This day, give preeminence and praise to the One who is our head! -TFTD
God bless you all and have a great week!
