I understand this frame to read "Do not attempt to use magic to operate this toy. If you do, you will awaken a large rubber monster and bring his wrath down upon all of Japan. If this happens, someone will have to summon Godzilla to save us all... again..."

Thats just genius. Do the manufacturers really think people will try to use an evil hypnotist to levitate it?
I hope so, 'cos they'd be right.
After all:


When I used to be a cook, we found on a bottle of milk:
Caution: contains milk
We also found on a custard packet a custard help line. Sadly I don't have the number anymore.

This is the best I have ever seen. The instructions for a toy remote control aeroplane my friend bought in Japan...I think the scan of the instructions speaks for itself:

For some reason you cannot operate the remote with your feet?

That's turn counter clockwise slowly, with caution.
No that can't be right. The exclamation mark is to close to the snail, and the arrow is gigantic!
Big arrows always means "strong force". Roll Eyes

A large amount of force then, as evidenced by the big arrow, but slowly (and it's important that it's done slowly) as evidenced by the surprised snail.

At least not while wearing socks. They disrupt all fine motoric control of the toes, after all.

In the first section, in the top right box... have they put the toy down the top of some broad?

...that's GENIUS.

I think Skinner was refering to "Do not try to impress your friends by demonstrating your karate skills on our product. If you do, you may awaken a large rubber monster.....

Oh, I see. When Skinner said "broad" I thought he was using slang for "woman" and thought he meant the top right box of the upper left section.

I missed the "broad" typo... Now I'm laughing at that....

I don't think broad was a typo. I think she muddled right and left.  I could be wrong of course Undecided

Ok so its a road sign rather than an instruction ( - they are instructions of a sort)
Its one of my favourites so I just had to think of an excuse to submit this

Fixed for you Smiley That's funny that they would broadcast the location of a secret.

To be fair, the site in question is now open as a museum named "Secret Nuclear Bunker".

I always love the "falling rocks" sign. What am I supposed to do? Close the sunroof? Drive faster to get out of the danger area?

In upstate NY Boy Scout Camps in the 1960's the frequent  "Falling Rock Zone" signs were "explained" around campfires (with suitable histrionics) as places where the shade of a Native American warrior waited to wreak his ghostly-vengeance. Smiley

The actual secret nuclear bunker's in the other direction.

Clever, no?

I once saw a road sign for a "Government Military Base", or something along those lines of Relatively Important To Keep Secret. Now fair enough, I don't think a whole load of terrorists are going to be driving along crammed into the back of a Toyota Yaris, but that still strikes me as a slightly silly road sign.

I also once recieved a toy helicopter for christmas (which my dad promptly crashed whilst "calibrating"), and the instructions were hilarious. Unfortunately I think they must have got thrown out, since I can't find them.
