please let me write the warning labels

This morning in my (finally-tiled) shower I noticed the warning label on my really yummy-smelling body wash. It read caution: not for internal use.

If there is goodness and fairness in the world, someday I will be allowed to re-write the warning labels. If I wrote this one, it would say caution: not for internal use, you moron. because THIS IS SOAP.

Oiey.

That and the "this is not a toy" label on plastic bags I find quite hilarious.. "oh man! I wanted to play with that!" Sadly, you know there had to be some precedent for them to include those warnings. Probably some idiot wanting to clean their insides... :S

I'm always curious about these people who smell bleach and other random cleaning products are thinking? 'Mmm...I think my stomach needs a good clean-out'?
