Happy Friday! It is a rough and dangerous world that we live in. Who knows what might befall us around the next corner or with the next product that we purchase? Thankfully, we have warning labels to keep us alert to the imminent dangers that await. Here are some warnings that might not exactly be the most informative and useful.
