In case you needed further
proof that the human race is doomed through stupidity, here are some actual label

"Do not use while sleeping."
(Gee, that's the only time I have to work on my hair)
2. On a bag of Fritos:
"You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside."
(Evidently, the shoplifter special)
3. On a bar of Dial soap:
"Directions: Use like regular soap."
(And that would be how. . ?)
4. On some Swanson frozen dinners:
"Serving suggestions: Defrost."
(But it's *just* a suggestion)

13. On an American Airlines packet of nuts:
"Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts."
(Step 3: Fly Delta.)(notice how it says "AMERICAN airlines")

(Was there a chance of this happening somewhere?...Good grief)

18. On a bottle of ALL laundry detergent:
