I have rolled my eyes over many warning labels, and often wondered what sort of lawsuit inspired the idiot-proofing attached to all my merchandise. I especially enjoy the "duh" labels like "Do not drive with sunshade in place" or "Caution: hot when heated". And of course there are all those California warnings - "This (fill in the blank with product of your choice) is known to the state of California to cause cancer." Luckily we don't live in California so these sorts of labels don't apply to us. (Phew! I was really worried about my stroller giving me cancer.) But I must admit, this warning label on my travel pillow has left me a little bewildered:
In case you can't read it, it says: "Warning: Do not use for sleeping. For decorative purposes only."
Silly me. I bought this pillow thinking I could use it for sleeping when really I should have been using it to contribute to the feng shui of my living room. I feel so sheepish!
