Warning Signs … And Labels

I think it’s great that other companies have finally started following the lead of the tobacco industry and have begun to put health warnings on their products.
… not your health warnings … more environmental health warnings.

Sniff … and use less of our product” is what I see when I look at these tissues.

I’m sure “Don’t Wipe” toilet paper, “Use a Sponge” paper towels, and “Forks are Better” disposable chopsticks will be released soon.


note: no one advertises “rainforest pencils” for some reason.

double note: looking at the paper on my cigarettes gives me the funny feeling that I’ve smoked a few trees in my lifetime.

triple note: Uncaring Lazy Bastard” plastic bags could be a hit!


Today #78

It’s recycling day today! I wish there were more of them … because I love them so much and would make sure to have a lot of stuff for them everytime!

  1. The brand you are looknig for is “Old Farmer’s” brand. They last a lot longer, too, because by following the instructions you only use them for a bit of clean-up afterward, not to deposit the whole mess.

  2. Cynical Scribble

    Just like bags of peanuts have the statement “may contain nuts” I hope these say “may contain snot/massive bogeys”.

  3. I’ve been checking out the comments on your last few posts. I haven’t been commenting. What’s happening? Am I losing my sense of humour? Checked out my own blog. The answer’s ‘Yes’. Help!

  4. I bought recycled scissors for work. They’re more expensive. There is toilet paper made from recycled “materials” whats up with THAT!?

  5. Dante’s Inferno offers inspiration: Abandon hope all ye who enter here.
    All ye consumers…
    Now that is good marketing; posting ethical values.

  6. Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha the Sniff brand tissues have really cracked me up. Your idea for the plastic bags is fantastic.

  7. Thanks for all the comments.

    Donald Diddams: yes! that’s the brand I was looking for. thanks!
    I think my uncle saved quite a few trees from his farm in Manitoba: but I don’t think he ever knew his impact … he probably knew his velocity though. hee hee!

    Cynical Scribble: do marshmellow bags have “may contain marshmellows” warning labels on them too?

    Tooty Nolan: maybe my stuff isn’t funny and doesn’t deserve a comment. I’m from the “100 monkeys on 100 typewriters” school of writing. hee hee!

    sweetiegirlz: I’ve never heard of recycled scissors!!! Maybe you were fooled by unscrupulous scissor merchants … or scissors merchants, but that sounds funny for some weird reason.

    exuvia: thanks for stopping by! I guess all who entered “Dante’s Inferno” may not have been consumers, but they would have been consumed in flames soon enough I guess … which would make them consumers of a sort … I guess. hee hee!

    Tony: it’s amazing what I see when I actually go into stores. I’m a window shopper/window nose smudger at heart.

  8. I still feel unusual

    At least they didn’t name the loo paper “sniff”!

  9. S. Le: hee hee!
    Is there “Winnie the Pooh” toiletpaper?

  10. sweetiegirlz: I’d pay $8 for scissors … if they were really good. The ones I buy seem to be $5 a scissor … and what good is one with out the other?? hee hee!

    note: using 2 knives to cut paper is not good.
