The Corpus Callosum

Wacky Warning Label…


Product: Midol
Menstrual Complete

Label: Ask a doctor
before use if you have difficulty urinating due to an enlarged prostate.

Sound advice from Merck. But should sufferers of
premenstrual syndrome really lose sleep over enlarged prostates?

That’s from a collection on the Forbes
website.  At first glance, it seems senseless.  But I
suspect that the warning is FDA-mandated for all products containing
antihistamines, which this does.

    Doesn’t seem senseless to me.

    “Bad headache. No Tylenol in the house. Wait a sec … this stuff should work …”

    Finally! Warning labels that cater to the transsexual consumer.
