How often do you check clothing labels?

My daughter was folding the washing yesterday morning and happened to glance at the label on a pair of her leggings. The diagram was so strange that she walked upstairs to show me. It is a drawing of a stick figure running away from a car with an x across it. Above this strange image is a symbol of an iron with an x across it which means do not iron. Is this label telling the owner to not run in front of a car?


I suggested that she turn the label over to see if we could find out more about the diagram and this is what we found.


If you read carefully you will see that it states ” DO NOT TAKE OFF IN PUBLIC AND & RUN DOWN THE STREET SMASHING CAR WINDOWS”

The leggings were made in Hong Kong so is this a case of a bored translator with a sense of humour? Then again that explanation doesn’t explain the drawing. I decided to do a search on google for funny clothing labels and here is a selection from what I found.
