Bud's World

Real warning labels for those without common sense:
On a 500-piece puzzle: “Some assembly required.”
On a Frisbee: “Warning: May contain small parts.”
On a toilet bowl cleaning brush: “Do not use orally.”
On a 13-inch wheel on a wheelbarrow: “Not intended for highway use.”
On a toilet at a public sports facility: “Recycled flush water unsafe for drinking.”
On a 6 inch inflatable picture frame: “Not to be used as a personal flotation device.”
On a birthday card for a 1 year old: “Not suitable for children aged 36 months or less.”

I was just wondering…
Shouldn't there be a shorter word for ‘monosyllabic?’
Why does belly button lint not match your shirt color?
If a man is standing in the middle of the forest speaking and there is no woman around to hear him...
is he still wrong?

From the Choir Loft
6 down, 3 to go! We have performed the patriotic musical: ‘Our Flag Was Still There’ at 6 different venues, and have 3 more performances to go! Whose idea was this anyway? I hope he’s learned his lesson!
