Some toy labels say, "batteries included." Technically, this is true. They will last long enough for the parents to want to destroy the toy, and for the toy to become the children's new favorite. They'll demand the new batteries be fully installed in 0.025 seconds or less. (47 words)

*****


I've noticed that shirts labeled "iron free" are not really "iron free." I think all it really means is "This shirt won't turn into a crumpled mess if you lean the wrong way." The person who declared the shirts "iron free" should have to spend eternity ironing them. (48 words)

*****


"One size fits all!" I saw this all the time on various clothing. It was never true for me. Lately I've noticed they say, "One size fits most." While accurate, it doesn't make me feel better. All it says is "If this doesn't fit you, you're freakishly tall or short." (50 words)

*****


Many personal hygiene products claim to be "fragrance free.". What they should really says is "This product will not make the person next to you break out in hives." I'd like to meet the man who decided that was an appropriate label. I'm sure he looks funny without a nose. (50 words)

*****


I dread Christmas. Inevitably, my son will get a toy that says, "Some assembly required." The first unwritten steps are always the same. "Spend 20 minutes finding the English direction." Done. "Step 2. Obtain an engineering degree from a fully accredited university."

"Daddy, when can I play with it?"
"Easter." (50 words)


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

You made me smile. Sadly how true. You captured so many frustrations, humorously in these few words.
Seema Bagai  25 Sep 2007
These are great. False advertising is everywhere, isn't it?

T hese are special. I think number 5 hit the mark best, So many Christmas mornings spent tryng to put a toy together.
Cynthia Hinkle 25 Sep 2007
Though I like ironing I like the flow of number 2. It's a zinger.
