Frivolous lawsuits are great for devious lawyers and warning label writers. The Warning Label contest, conducted by Michigan Lawsuit Abuse Watch, celebrates both parties. This year’s winners:

4th Place: A five-inch fishing lure with 3 steel hooks cautions users that it is “harmful if swallowed.”

3rd Place: A warning label found on a 12-inch high storage rack for compact discs reminds purchasers: “Do not use as a ladder.”

2nd Place: The label on one snow sled is very adamant: “Beware: sled may develop high speed under certain snow conditions.”

And the Grand Prize Winner: Warning label found on a bottle of drain cleaner: “If you do not understand, or cannot read, all directions, cautions and warnings, do not use this product.”
