“Wacky Warning Label Contest,” sponsored by Michigan Lawsuit Abuse Watch:
3rd place (tie): “Do not iron” on a lottery ticket; and “Don’t try to dry your phone in a microwave oven” on a cell phone.
2nd place: “Never use a lit match or open flame to check fuel level” on a personal watercraft.
1st place: “Do not put any person in this washer” on a washing machine at a laundromat.
