There are hidden Easter eggs in just about every product instruction or tag, but you were probably too busy to read them or just focusing on the amount of calories on that ketchup bottle. Fortunately, we’re giving you a second chance to spot some of the obvious and dumbest things companies have placed on their labels.
NO CELLPHONE? NO PROBLEM
You know it’s true. You either left your cell phone on the counter, have no bars, or your battery died. In any case, this company knows the real reason you’re reading through the list of ingredients and they’re being witty about it too.
SLIPPERY WHEN WET
Brilliant instructions for a dog shampoo, especially if you took the time to actually read it. And it’s so true because the soap really does speed dogs up, and catching them can be hell on Earth.
THAT’S SO GENDER NEUTRAL
Not only are you getting washing instructions on how to keep your garment looking as new as the day you bought it, but it’s also reminding you that responsibility can be shared by both genders, but since no one reads this, it’s no wonder men always dump all their laundry on someone else.
THE BETTER KIND OF HUMAN
Read carefully! Clothing labels don’t just tell you how to take care of your clothes, they also teach you how to be a better human being, or at the very least how not to become abusive to pandas, who are the cutest thing ever.
THE T STANDS FOR TESTED
Finally, a clothing line that has a sense of humor about these things. Now that’s the spirit TopGear! This is one T-shirt label that was bound to crack you right up if you’d bothered to read the label.
LIFE’S LITTLE INSTRUCTION MANUAL
There are a few things you should know about your garments. Not only do they make you look great, but they also come with valuable info on how to have a better life. Plus, you might be wearing fabric made from a mythical creature, but you know, whatever.
Well, we suppose that it’s better than writing, “apply generously onto any skin that’s dry AF”. Plus they wrote the instructions in French, making it tres chic.
HAVE A SNACK
It might as well have translated to… have a seat and cry. It’s going to be a while before you figure out how to put the piece of furniture together, but we suppose the way they did it was more subtle.
THANK YOU CAPTAIN OBVIOUS
This product label was brought to you by Defenders of Duh! In fact, this label actually makes it more complicated because now we don’t know what water temperature to use, or which cycle to set the washing machine.
PULL, DON’T TEAR
At least the company is able to own up to their product’s weakness. But still, it doesn’t look like the instructions did anyone any good since most of us still tear from left to right.
