My favorite (and I might have posted this before) is the hand-cut strip of paper that came with a set of give-away steak knives from Indonesia.
All it said, "Do not leave knives in children".

Anyone got any good quotes from factory or engineering manuals? I work with
a lot of factories from the far east, and they often provide manuals to us
for our products that have been translated from Chinese. Here are some

"It is very convenient for you to do the weatherproofing work if you pull
the cable out your own exit"
"Offering more of the lower level control feature of the camera are all in
this menu tree."
"Circle store while disk is full" -- UI command meaning Disk Overwrite
