    Well, if those are in fact real, I guess I'm having a hard time finding the humor in a bunch of incompetent drivers with no appreciation for or understanding of the serious nature of driving a motorized vehicle on the roadways.

    Hey, someone had to say it.

    here is something to add to your joke of the day:
    Some examples of why the human race has probably evolved as far as possible. These are actual instruction labels on consumer goods:
    - On Sears hairdryer: Do not use while sleeping.
    (Gee, that's the only time I have to work on my hair!)
    - On a bag of Fritos: You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside.
    (The shoplifter special!)
    - On a bar of Dial soap: Directions: Use like regular soap.
    (and that would be how?)
    - On some Swann frozen dinners: Serving suggestion: Defrost.
    (But it's 'just' a suggestion!)
    - On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert: (printed on bottom of the box) Do not turn upside down.
    (Too late! you lose!)
    - On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding: Product will be hot after heating.
    (Are you sure? Let's experiment.)
    - On packaging for a Rowenta iron: Do not iron clothes on body.
    (But wouldn't that save more time?) (Whose body?)
    - On Boot's Children's cough medicine: Do not drive car or operate machinery.
    (We could do a lot to reduce the construction accidents if we just kept those 5 year olds off those fork lifts.)
    - On Nytol sleep aid: Warning: may cause drowsiness.
    (One would hope!)
    - On a Korean kitchen knife: Warning: keep out of children.
    (hmm...something must have gotten lost in the translation...)
    - On a string of Christmas lights: For indoor or outdoor use only.
    (As opposed to use in outer space.)
    - On a food processor: Not to be used for the other use.
    (Now I'm curious.)
    - On Sainsbury's peanuts: Warning: contains nuts.
    (but no peas?)
    - On an American Airlines packet of nuts: Instructions: open packet, eat nuts.
    (somebody got paid big bucks to write this one...)
    - On a Swedish chainsaw: Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands.
    (Raise your hand if you've tried this...)
    - On a child's Superman costume: Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly.
    (Oh go ahead! That's right, destroy a universal childhood belief.)
    Cant remember were I found these but I thought they were humorous. By the way I like the driving test answers, made me feel smart.[​IMG]

    Most pistols made in the last few decades bear a warning lable on them, something like 'may be dangerous'. My Ruger .357 magnum has one...

    Here's an e-mail that I received last night which nearly made me cry from laughing! [​IMG]
    My three year old son had a lot of problems with potty
    training; and I was on him constantly. One day we stopped at Taco Bell for a quick lunch in-between errands. It was very busy, with a full dining room. While enjoying my taco, I smelled something funny, so of course, I checked my seven month old daughter, and she was clean. Then I realized that Matt had not asked to go potty in a while, so I asked him and he said, "No." I kept thinking, "Oh Lord, that child has had an accident and I didn't have any clothes with me." Then I said, "Matt, are you sure you did not have an "No," he replied. I just knew that he must have, because the smell was getting worse. Sooooo.... I asked one more time, "Matt, did you have an accident?" Matt jumped up, yanked down his pants, bent over and spread his cheeks and
    yelled.... "SEE, MOM, IT'S JUST FARTS!!!" While 100 people nearly choked to death on their tacos, he calmly pulled up his pants and sat down to eat his food as if nothing happened. I was mortified! Some kind elderly people made me feel a lot better, when they came over and thanked me for the best laugh they had ever had!!! Another old gentleman stopped us in the parking lot as we were
    leaving, bent over to my son and said, "Don't worry son, my wife accuses me of the same thing all the time...I just never had the nerve to make the point like you did."

    Another Day, another joke:
    Worst Analogies (taken from High School papers)
    She caught your eye like one of those pointy hook latches that used to dangle from screen doors and would fly up whenever you banged the door open again. (R. M., Fairfax Station)
    The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a bowling ball wouldn't. (R. B., Springfield)
    McBride fell 12 stories, hitting the pavement like a Hefty Bag filled with vegetable soup. (P. S., Silver Spring)
    From the attic came an unearthly howl. The whole scene had an eerie, surreal quality, like when you're on vacation in another city and "Jeopardy" comes on at 7 p.m. instead of 7:30. (R. A., Washington)
    Her hair glistened in the rain like nose hair after a sneeze. (C. S., Woodbridge)
    Her eyes were like two brown circles with big black dots in the center. (R. B., Springfield)
    Bob was as perplexed as a hacker who means to access T[​IMG][email protected] but gets T:[email protected] by mistake (K. K., Landover Hills)
    Her vocabulary was as bad as, like, whatever. (Unknown)
    He was as tall as a six-foot-three-inch tree. (J. B., Chevy Chase)
    The hailstones leaped from the pavement, just like maggots when you fry them in hot grease. (G. F. Hevel, Silver Spring)
    Her date was pleasant enough, but she knew that if her life was a movie this guy would be buried in the credits as something like "Second Tall Man." (R. B., Springfield)
    Long separated by cruel fate, the star-crossed lovers raced across the grassy field toward each other like two freight trains, one having left Cleveland at 6:36 p.m. traveling at 55 mph, the other from Topeka at 4:19 p.m. at a speed of 35 mph. (J. H., Arlington)
    The politician was gone but unnoticed, like the period after the Dr. on a Dr Pepper can. (W. G., Madison, Ala.)
    They lived in a typical suburban neighborhood with picket fences that resembled Nancy Kerrigan's teeth (P. K., Syracuse, N.Y.)
    John and Mary had never met. They were like two hummingbirds who had also never met. (R. B., Springfield)
    The thunder was ominous-sounding, much like the sound of a thin sheet of metal being shaken backstage during the storm scene in a play. (B. F., Alexandria)
    His thoughts tumbled in his head, making and breaking alliances like underpants in a dryer without Cling Free. (C. S., Woodbridge)
    The red brick wall was the color of a brick-red Crayola crayon.
