My favorite dumb warning is actually not so dumb. It's on the collapsible foil reflector that I use to keep the summer sun from melting all the interior plastic on my car's dashboard. The label says "Not for use while driving." Hey, I know people who need the reminder!

Douglas Adams' Rules of Technology
1. Anything that is in the world when you're born is normal and
ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you're fifteen and
thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can
probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against
the natural order of things.
