Re: 15 Stupidest label warnings

Not a label, but relevant all the same:

Yesterday afternoon, as I was walking up a staircase with my luggage on the way to the airport, I was informed by a recorded message that I should make use of the handrail while ascending.

Of course, being an intelligent human being, I already had my hand on the handrail.

Of course, being a free-thinking Englishman, the moment I was told to do so, I removed my hand and walked up the stairs unsupported!

Will the moronification of our world continue unchallenged? Must we really be led quietly, like sheep, into the state of docile infantilism predicted by Aldous Huxley?

I say that we must Thunder Against It!

Anyone fancy a cup of McDonald's coffee? Bring your car and hotpants...
This reminds me of a sign I found in Dublin airport: "If you do not know how to use the escalator, please use the lift."

I had a great time trying to imagine which indigenious people are not used to escalators but very proficient at using lifts.

Obviously.... how can I have missed them. I have actually even been there before. They must visit Dublin quite regularly.
