Warnings-they're everywhere.

On toys. On hair dryers. On compact discs. On take-out coffee cups. Almost everything for sale today comes with a warning. Why? Now, most people have enough common sense not to take a bath with an electric blender, but thanks to a few morons out there who sued big companies and won huge settlements, products now come with warnings that treat consumers like a bunch of slack-jawed yokels.

So here's a collection of more than a hundred of the most ridiculous real warning labels on today's products. For example:

CAUTION: DO NOT ON USE THIS HAMMER TO STRIKE ANY SOLID OBJECT.
Such as, perhaps, the head of the idiot who came up with this warning in the first place?

In addition, the book includes two dozen hilarious peel-off fake warning labels you can stick on real products to keep you, your friends, and your loved ones safe. Just don't read this book while driving a car or operating heavy machinery.
