One of my favorites from TV:

 

"For Mature Audiences Only"

 

Usually means a lot of unneccessary swear words, gratuitous violence, an infantile plot, and actors/actresses that are obnoxious with little or no talent.

 

I didn't mention gratuitous sex because I didn't want to get made fun of for being anti-American.

Well, maybe they feel they need those warning labels. Because in America, people sue McDonalds for being fat, and win the case in court.

People sue Starbucks for burning themselves on the coffee, and they win the case in court.

 

And some people are really dumb and might need those warnings. I remember an article about toys which got banned. It was 3 toys which kids managed to kill themselves with. One toy, the kid put on his head and jumped from window with, asuming he would fly or something.

The other toy fired missiles when press button, and the kit put it inside his nostril, he thought the rocket would go inside his nose and come out from his stomach.

Then there was another toy, that a kid broke with a hammer, then ate the pieces...

I don't remember the label completely, however watching an episode of MotorWeek I remember seeing the battery label warning on a hybrid car a Toyota or Honda that warned of being killed if the batteries were handled.
