Government recalls
I subscribe to http://www.cpsc.gov/ for emails of recalls, from toys to food. I really like receiving these, especially with the lead paint stuff that exploded just before Christmas...

However, I've received a few lately that crack me right up. Especially the ones that are talking about recalls for candles because they are flammable.


ya think?

I dunno, but I don't expect the OUTER portion of my candle to ignite! I mean, you're trying to have a controlled flame for ambiance, not set the whole thing alight like firecracker!

However, there are a lot of WARNING labels that do indeed make me giggle.

LMAO, when my DH had his vasectomy he was asked to sign a legal paper stating that he KNEW having this operation might cause sterility! That is the best one I have ever heard. Duh.... why else would a man have a vasectomy???

That was my favourite too, contains 100% yarn! Well duhhhhhhhhh... But then there was this vivid picture I had in my head... rush hour, some major highway and lots of people running along pushing their wheelbarrows to work??? OMG, too funny! OK, so I had two favs.

Or what about someone trying to insert the curling iron, oh never mind, it's just too painful to think about.

These are way to funny even in the morning hours. I read them and thought my goodness someone had to have used this the wrong way. A great big duh
