Once bought a pair of shoes that was packaged in a box which was ornamented with an antiquey-looking print of an old marine chart of, as it happened, part of the coast of Maine. On the bottom of the box was printed a warning that the chart was not accurate or up-to-date, and the box was not suitable for use as a navigational aid.

And then, of course, there's the famous label from the Sainsbury's British Chicken Triple sandwich, which ran something like this:

British chicken and sweetcorn with mayonnaise on malted bread.
British chicken and with sage and onion stuffing and mayonnaise on white bread.
British chicken and mayonnaise on malted bread.

Made in Britain using British pork.

(The stuffing, it turns out, contains not only sage and onions, but also pork.)

An interesting thing I found out lately is that the oven ready chicken you buy in the shops in the plastic tray with clingfilm on are injected with pork fat and pork juice in the abattoir to flavor the chicken.its no wonder people are getting sick every day.

Apparently some guns the US army are given have instructions on them saying "aim at the enemy".
