Hookah and Plastic

A friend of mine recently bought some tobacco-free "tobacco" for a hookah pipe. Eager to convince me that there was nothing unhealthy about it, she grabbed the box and read out the ingredients.




The stuff was produced in India, so I think someone had a little fun when they were asked to translate the ingredient list into English.

On the other end of the scale, I have a necklace that came with a tag which proclaimed (alongside pictures of choking people)

Caution: Necklace is not edible
Warning: Do not eat

Oh, yes... does anyone else read labels just for the fun of it?

"That's not gibberish. It's Klingon!" -nerdy kid, after Frasier publicly blesses his son in what is supposedly Hebrew

P.S. If you didn't learn Pig Latin as a kid, you were sorely deprived.

Some necklaces are very tasty. Mainly candy necklaces.

Maybe the warning label should have also said, "Not to be used as a weapon." or "Do not use as a tow-rope" or "Do not use in an electrical outlet".
