Here’s a warning- do not hold the wrong end of a chainsaw. As far as warnings go, that’s a pretty good one in that it is needed. I suppose someone may indeed not know what is the end of the chainsaw that actually saws and cuts. If I ever needed to use a chainsaw I think I would know which end is which but I suppose a sticker doesn’t hurt. Then there are those warnings about not using a hair dryer while you are sleeping. Yes, that is true. However, one must wonder who is reading such a warning label while asleep. I suppose one can’t be too cautious. After all, now because of a lawsuit decades ago, we need to label one’s hot coffee as being hot. Laughingly, many years ago, a letter opener product had a warning label recommending one wear safety goggles. Of course!
Recently, the CDC warned us to not kiss our chickens, especially on the mouth. It makes sense in the large scheme of things. See, the CDC needs to warn Americans of the hazards of contact with chickens, including the risk of catching salmonella. What is somewhat funny to me is the warning to not snuggle with the backyard chickens. Got it!
And, of course we have the CDC warning and guide to dealing with zombies. Now, this I find most useful. You just never know. And, we should all be prepared for that zombie apocalypse.

Indeed. I’ve watched many shows and movies and know how to fight off the zombies. 🙂 hehe.

Almost every warning label is the result of a lawsuit somewhere.
I think that if a person is stupid enough to try to hold onto the wrong end of a chainsaw or to use a blow drier while they are sleeping, they aren’t going to read the label to begin with. Or if they do, they’ll ignore it.
The proliferation of labels means they get ignored. The *important* ones are lost in the crowd. Some warnings are far more important than others. Even if you can’t be rid of the sillier ones, there should be a way to prioritize. Reading the warnings on a typical OTC drug calls for a magnifying glass and occupies far, far more area than the instructions for use.
Labels can also give us a false sense of security. Labels don’t make a thing safe. You can follow every caution label on a ladder and still fall off and die doing something stupid or because of an unforeseen event. No label can substitute for a dose of common sense.
That is such a good point about how labels give a false sense of security
