Here's one of those things that just makes you scratch your head and wonder who writes these things.

I've been taking tribulus terrestris, an herbal supplement that stimulates the development of testosterone. On the label, after talking about how it helps with training, endurance, and "male performance", it says, "Do not take if pregnant or nursing."

Hmmm...

Sorry, but "do not afix this unit to the ceiling" still wins for silly label warnings.

My personal favorite is the warning that they put on Preparation H, which I believe is sold in Canada: "Do not take orally". You know why they put that on the tube, don't you? Because someone wrote to them and said, "I ate a whole tube of that stuff and I've still got hemorrhoids."

What exactly was yours from? A smoke alarm?

A cd player/stereo. Yes, I know, someone at some point tried to afix it to the ceiling, or the company wouldn't have felt it incumbent upon themselves to warn against the practice.

But... why?

There are entire web sites dedicated to labels of this nature. Perhaps you should submit to this one?
