omgoodness, I'm blogging again!

Dear readers, I know it has been a VERY long time since i posted anything on my blog. Life as you all know sends us many curve balls and challenges. I finally got a computer that works and have decided that i am going to blog again! I know, miracles do still occur! I will once again be searching the wacky world of strange and weird laws and warning labels. I will find those stupid signs posted around the world. I want to beg you to come back and explore the idiotic things we are expected to follow by lawyers, companies and public officials. Comments and suggestions are not only welcome, but would be GREATLY appreciated! I promise to to try and make you giggle and smile! Hope you read me soon! love, janene

You are tooo late....

Have you ever read the warnings on the birth control pills? It reads, "WARNING!: do not use if you are pregnant, intend to become pregnant, or might be pregnant ". Duh! If you are trying to get pregnant and are taking birth control pills, you are too stupid to pass on your genes! Also, the magic in the pills that keeps the stork away expires at the same time the "rabbit" does! If the bun is already in the oven, YOU ARE TOO LATE! Also I can't imagine any woman who WANTS to become pregnant being dumb enough to keep taking pills to prevent pregnancy, but...you never know! Stupid is as stupid does!

You have to play soccer WHERE?

A sign in Lime Kiln Park, Grafton, Wisconsin, reads, "SOCCER NOT ALLOWED! Soccer may only be played on the archery range!" They must really hate soccer players! On the other hand, if you are an archer in Wisconsin they supply you with lots of moving targets!

"Dead" end...

Sometimes a normal mundane traffic sign is hung in an area that just by its location it becomes comical instead of mundane. San Antonio Texas has just such a sign. A "dead end" sign is  located on a street called, "cemetery road". For most that road truly is a DEAD END!

Do women have prostates?

This warning label comes from an entirely female oriented product, or so I thought..."Midol Maximum strength geltabs", "WARNING!:Do not take this product unless directed by a doctor if you have difficulty with urination due to enlargement of the prostate gland". The box DOES say menstrual relief, doesn't it? I could be wrong, but if you have a prostate, menstrual cramps shouldn't be a problem you face....RIGHT?!?!?

Freshened, and safe to use!

This warning is on "Bowl Fresh", brand toilet bowl deodorizer. "Safe to use around pets and children, although it is not recommended that either be permitted to drink from the toilet!"

Shout it out!

This is a warning on "Shout" stain removing gel for laundry, "CAUTION! contains cleaning agents. Do not treat garment while wearing!" Clearly if you don't even want to take your clothes off long enough to wash them, stains aren't going to bother you either!

Let us drink to DEATH!

This warning label is actually not stupid, but protects the "stupid". Liquid Plumber drain fluid, "WARNING!:do not reuse container to store beverages! serious injury or death could occur." Common sense tells me that is just a very dumb idea...but there are some idiots out there that need to be warned!

UP UP AND NO WAY!

Remember when you put a towel or blanket around your neck and pretended to  fly around the world fighting fictitious criminals?  Now days you can get a  superman costume that looks real from head to toe...but one little minor thing keeps the bad guys away from you and the Superman costume from perfection! "WARNING: this garnment does not enable you to fly!" Dang too bad! How cool would it be soaring around my little world high in the sky the wind in my hair, and bugs in my teeth from grinning ear to ear flying around the neighborhood!  Oh how nice that would be....:(

Made in the U.S.A.?

Today's label can be found in the small print on "Fender" guitar packages. "Made in America. parts from Japan, assembled in Mexico." Hmmm? Made in the U.S.A?

Cheapskate dental gear!

I hate the dentist! But if I do get the courage to go see one, I am comfortably reassured by his clean office and state of the art equipment. But what cheap dental school dropout would possibly think this product would be a good idea for his office? Drememel Electric Rotary Tool. The product actually has this warning on the box, "WARNING! This product NOT intended for use as a dental drill!" So if your dentist can't read warning labels and has this tool for use in YOUR mouth...RUN OUTTA THERE FAST!

No pickled children!

Costco...wonderful land of huge containers of mayonnaise and ketchup, but why would the average housewife buy a 5gallon bucket of pickles? If such a purchase is made be sure to read the warning label!  "WARNING! Children can drown in bucket, do not place children in pickle juice!" You suppose that is the true origin of the saying, IN A PICKLE?

Stupid Warning Labels

I have decided to try something a bit different from the stupid laws for a bit, dumb product warning labels! Doing my research I have laughed so hard I just had to pass them along! The first one is fitting for summertime, it comes courtesy of "Champion" brand swimmer support jocksraps. The label actually says, "this product is only to be prescribed by a physician and fit only by a trained technician ". How would you like THAT job...jockstrap technician, well, maybe I would, but they would have to screen my appointments...if you get my drift! * wink* !

But I'm a vegetarian!

Meat, I love it, I want it, I enjoy it often! Vegetables are yummy too! Why would people choose to eat...grass. Yes, I said grass. I guess if that's your thing go for it! But if you are in Arizona you better watch where you eat! An actual law from Arizona says, " No human being may eat grass from any area where sheep or cattle are grazing ". I don't think manure covered grass would be palatable, but then again, I don't think any grass would be tasty!

Rollerblader gone wild!


There is a group of daredevil rollerbladers that do a bunch of moronic tricks! In the city of Nashville Tennessee you can cruise down stairs, and leap over garbage cans, and fly over cars, but one stunt is illegal! "any persons rollerblading may not tie his or herself to a moving vehicle on a highway". I guess you gotta draw the line somewhere!

Sweet little law breakers!

When we were little how many baths did we take alone? Our mommy would fill the tub with bubbles and toys, and in WE went. My sisters and I always had group baths when we were little. As did our own kids when we had them. It saved time and they seemed to not to mind! Well, if you live in Los Angeles California, you are forbidden to bathe en mass! The law dictates that under No conditions may you bathe two babies in the same  tub at the same time! I can understand that they are concerned with the mom not being able to give both children her full attention, but come on! Give me a break!

That's my boy!

Nathan has been building trucks and Jeeps since he was just a toddler and his building materials were legos. As soon as he was old enough he moved on to the real thing. He has owned and modified several Jeeps and trucks, not keeping them for very long when they are complete (I believe its the building he loves, and when they are done he has to move on to the next one!) His latest Jeep is now in the pages of a popular Jeep magazine,  "Jp magazine " You can find it in the July 2010 issue, his buddy Mike Demarco and Denny Elder also have their Jeeps featured! Go buy a copy and check it out! I am very excited for all the boys, congratulations! Mom is very proud of you boys! :)
