Turns out creators of the bizarrely macabre warning posted on a tractor—"Danger: Avoid Death"—didn't make such a grave mistake after all. The warning was so peculiar that it won the 11th annual Wacky Warning Label Contest, an event run by a lawsuit abuse group. Second place went to the warning on an iron-on decal that : "Do not iron while wearing shirt." Duh.
Third was a warning on a stroller with a storage pouch reminding parents: "Do not put child in bag." Oh, and owners of a Vanishing Fabric Marker were told not to use it to sign legal documents. M-LAW is an advocacy group pushing for an end to "ridiculous" lawsuits, such as those that inspire these labels.
