    Of course, there is also the infamous www.engrish.com website.

    A little preface:
    I joke around with my wife and kids that I'm going to name our next dog "Steamer." If you ever witness our Labrador Retriever drop a doogan, on a cold morning, you'll know why.

    So, the funniest label I've seen has nothing to do with any disclaimers about the product. It's simply the name of the product:
    "Cafe Steamers" by Healthy Choice
    http://www.iateapie.net/reviews/arch..._choice_15.php
    I don't think we'll end up with any of these in our freezer.
    That's gonna leave a mark.

    Probably only my fellow geeks will appreciate these "nucleolus-free" snacks.



    Also spotted in Beijing, not product labels, but still amusing signs:





    And I had no idea that Table Tennis required special shoes.

    I bought a modem recently that had a website and e-mail to contact if you had any problems with installation.

    I saw a set of bike tools at Dicks labelled "tool package with sack"
    Since I am still 4 at heart, I have been laughing about it since.

    You need grip to make sure that you don't fall when executing sideways lunges at ninja speed. That being said they look like court shoes which are helpful at times..

    Funny timing for this thread. Just last night, my wife and I were reading the warning lable on a bag of cheese. I am paraphrasing here, but it basically said the same thing four times:

    "Keep bag away from children as slider may come off. Slider may be a hazard to children so keep children away in case of loose slider. Sliders are small and may be harmful to young children."

    The real thing was actually even funnier, but I can't remember it word for word.

    When I lived in Ireland, the tap water was chlorinated so much that I could barely drink the water (fine for cooking, though, as the chlorine escapes as the water boils). So, I bought bottled water instead. Cheap, two-litre bottles at Tesco for 62 eurocents (close to one USD) per bottle.

    These plastic Tesco water bottles had the following storage instructions printed on the label:
    "Store in a dry, cool place."

    Saw a commercial selling "Cafe Steamers" (as if nuke food was not bad enough). Worst product name since Chevy tried to sell Novas in Mexico.
