please let me write the warning labels

This morning in my (finally-tiled) shower I noticed the warning label on my really yummy-smelling body wash. It read caution: not for internal use.

If there is goodness and fairness in the world, someday I will be allowed to re-write the warning labels. If I wrote this one, it would say caution: not for internal use, you moron. because THIS IS SOAP.


  • You can add to warning labels:serving suggestions.

  • Awesome. Such is the fun of the blogging world– one can go from a well-researched and eloquently-worded piece about such and such band’s new album or remarkable live show and then BAM! …we get to hear about how some guy who probably makes twice as much money as any of us (technically as a student I make $0 so any multiple would be bad) put effort(?) into something like that label. Oiey.

  • That and the “this is not a toy” label on plastic bags I find quite hilarious.. “oh man! I wanted to play with that!” Sadly, you know there had to be some precedent for them to include those warnings. Probably some idiot wanting to clean their insides… :S

  • I’m always curious about these people who smell bleach and other random cleaning products are thinking? ‘Mmm…I think my stomach needs a good clean-out’?

  • Or the people who think that their new shoes come with a silica gel snack.

  • Damn it, the last person that posted stole my comment about those little packs of silica gel which boldly warn:

    “DO NOT EAT”

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
