Wacky warnings contest picks finalists

UPI News Service, 05/17/2011 

A Georgia non-profit announced the finalists for the Wacky Warning Labels Contest, including a warning to keep pen caps out of users' mouths.

The Center for America of Roswell non-profit promoting legal reform, listed the top five finalists for the 14th year of the contest, which will award cash prizes to those who submitted the top three warnings.

Alex Saenz of Dallas submitted a warning from a dust mask, "Does not supply oxygen," while Archer Leupp of Peshtigo, Wis., submitted a warning from a hot tub cover reading, "Warning: Avoid Drowning. Remove safety cover from spa when in use."

The top five also includes a submission by John Nevin of Holt, Mich., from a bicycle brochure featuring pictures of small children on bikes.

"Warning: The action depicted in this brochure is potentially dangerous. The riders seen are experienced experts or professionals," the warning reads.

Cheryl Keyes of Westborough, Mass., submitted a warning from an advertisement for a gun holder resembling a day planner, which reads, "For gun only, not a functional day planner."

Mark Stutzmann of Ann Arbor, Mich., rounded out the top five with an excerpt from the instructions for a ballpoint pen, "Warning: Pen caps can obstruct breathing. Keep out of mouth."

The organizers said winners will be chosen in June.
