Warning Labels On Gifts: Not Necessarily The News
With Christmas shopping in full gear, Tootie Landry gives her take on several warning labels of gifts she's gotten for others in this edition of "Not Necessarily The News."
"Hey! I’m Tootie Landry and this is what I found out today! Now that I’m getting into the holiday shopping spirit, I couldn’t help but notice some of the warned labels on several of the gifts I’ve already purchased. Do these manufacturers think we’re idiots?! For instance, I purchased a hairdryer for my daughter and the warning label said, “Do not use in the shower!”
My nephew is getting a superhero costume. The tag to it states, “Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly!” Are you kidding me?! After reading this, I put it back on the shelf!
My cousin from Boston loves jigsaw puzzles! I went all out—I bought him a 500 piece set. When I looked at the side of the box it said, “Some assembly required!” Folks this is funny stuff!
Harry Potter is pretty magical, however… when I purchased his toy broom for niece it stated, “This broom does not fly!” What a rip off!!
And finally, my favorite… I bought myself my own little Christmas present—I needed a new one anyway. I broke down and bought a new toaster. The warning label said, “Do not use under water!” So much for my toasted peanut butter and jellyfish sandwich!!
And I’m Tootie Landry and this is “Not Necessarily the News!”
