    Just had the dumbest set of instructions with a product ever. I received a free blow-up multi-coloured striped beach ball (you all know the type) that for some reason had instructions - six of them. I've never needed instructions to blow up a beach ball before but hey, maybe I'll learn something new I thought, so I read them. They were all useless, but the first one got my attention:

    "#1: Inflate beach ball. For best results, use mouth." :shock:

    I can only think of two other ways to inflate a beach ball without using a pump or air supply - the first one would take some effort and would be idiotic when your mouth was right next door; and the the other would be disgusting and probably require consuming copious amounts of baked beans, not to mention making the contents highly flammable. :!:

    Do you have any examples of dumb instructions?

    There IS a reason for that, though. Look up "Liebeck v. McDonald's Restaurants" on Wikipedia and you'll understand why that woman had a valid case. McDonald's was serving coffee that was literally scalding hot. It wasn't a frivolous lawsuit.

    These are hilarious. Sadly, if not for these obvious warnings, people would sue if they got hurt... perhaps by holding the wrong end of a chainsaw. :lol:

    Every time I hear the word "chainsaw", I think of a list I heard of once of "words you wouldn't want to have in your obituary". I can't recall all of them, but some were "propeller", "debris", "chainsaw", "DNA", "smoldering", "crane", and "severed" ...

    I saw some kind of documentary on that and was shocked. Poor lady really got screwed by the media. Now that I know the truth I'm glad she won.

    I think The point of that particular warning should specify not to use a high pressure pump.

    I worked at a gas station one summer in college, near a beach resort. People would come in all the time asking to use the air. We would tell them it's under very high pressure and we don't recommend it. They would overinflate and pop their stuff in like 2 seconds flat all the time. We'd try not to laugh but it's always funny watching them jump.

    Making me laugh right now just thinking about this guy who had a big inflatable alligator. It took full shape and exploded so fast, he jumped and ran like it was alive. omg it was hilarious.
