LaVonna Funkhouser and Sue Gallagher share some ludicrous instructions:

> "Blades are sharp, keep out of children."

This isn't quite the same thing, but I thought the list members might
get a kick out of it.

About a year or so ago, my daughter had two quarters burning a hole in
her pocket while we were at the grocery store. She decided to put them
in one of the machines where you turn the dial and you get some little
trinket. The item she received was a little plastic container filled
with "snow putty", which was some sort of irridescent green goo with
bits of *styrofoam* mixed up in it. The look of disappointment on her
face was very sad, but after I saw the directions that came with this
stuff, I bought them from her for a quarter, so all was not lost. Here
they are, verbatim.

1. Rub the Snow Putty in hand, and make a ball, due to excellent
flexibility, to becomes well.
Be sure to restore the Snow Putty in the resealable P.E. Bag
when not in use, and tightly sealed, so will not dry-out.

2. Also you can mix many different color Snow Putty and rub into
any shapes, wait until it gets dry in the wind, when you have
many beautiful models.

3. Please do not swallow it, although this product has been passed
safety test.

4. When the Snow Putty gets little hard, please add in to some
water keep rubbing, then you will have soft Snow Putty again.

One happy note, my daughter has never again put any money into those
silly machines. She has, however, discovered other ways to spend it.
