Signs of the Times


Signs are designed to catch our attention. They alert us to danger or promote some product. Some signs, however, defy understanding. The following are signs found in real life.

  • On a bag of Fritos: “You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside.”
  • On packaging for a Rowenta Iron: “Do not iron clothes on body.”
  • On a Korean kitchen knife: “Warning. Keep out of children.”
  • On an American Airlines packet of nuts: “Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts.”
  • On a Swedish chain saw: “Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands.” 
  • Wait there’s more!
