Warning Labels

It is now possible to find warning labels on almost everything we own. For example, on plastic bags, buckets and ovens:


On the bunk bed:

Even on plastic model car kits:

This makes you wonder why cars have so few warning labels. In my car, there is not a single visible warning sticker. Imagine if there were...
On the sunroof, there would have to be these:
The number of possible warning labels around the gas cap is mind-boggling...

Keep in mind that if you drive 10,000 miles per year, your chances of dying in a car accident are 1 in 6,000 or so. More than 100 people die every day in the U.S. in car wrecks. Nothing is more dangerous to consumers than a car. If every part of every car were stickered as carefully as most consumer products, you would not be able to see the dashboard or find the steering wheel. That may be why car manufacturers are off the hook...

I was about to post an entry on my own blog about wacky warning labels and ran across this. 'Nuf said.

Great blog!
