^ Yes as stupid as they mey seem to be, warning signs are a company's lifesaver over thousands of times than not having one at all.

"Safe for use around pets." -- On a box of Arm & Hammer Cat Litter

That one aint a warning =P

"No stopping or standing." -- A sign at bus stops everywhere

"In case of flood, proceed uphill. In case of flash flood, proceed uphill quickly." -- One of the emergency safety procedures at a summer camp

Many of them look silly but many companies got scared into labeling everything to avoid being sued. Remember the big lawsuit crazes back in the 90s and early 2000s? Hence the burglar suing the victim joke or the microwaving a cat joke in America. If you look at Burger King's coffee cups, they have the word "hot" on the cups in like 5 different languages just in case.
There are a lot of stupid signs in the world but nothing I really care about. My favorite and the most unappreciated sign is the microwavable message. How many times has it come in handy that you can check the bottom of a container to see if it is microwavable or not? It should get the lifetime achievement award for signs.

I remember when this list went around, there was also a: 'Do not stop chain with hands or genitals' warning on a chainsaw somewhere. >.< Why would anyone even attempt to do that?

There's a funny one at Vivocity(singapore) about cigarette butts.
Seeing the word Butt on the sign just made me laugh:)
