Do you ever pay close attention to those warning labels that are on just about everything? If not, you might want to start. Some are so painfully obvious, it’s great for a laugh. Or ten. You have to wonder…what inspired some of these?
*Note: If you are one of the “inspirations,” I want to meet you!
