    I would love it if people came with warning labels. Nothing extreme! Just something like "GOOD PERSON HERE" or "PSYCHO STAY AWAY" so that we'd all know the difference. I've met a few people who would greatly benefit from having a warning label on them...then...

    They could not make the label big enough... He would have to walk around with one of those wearable billboards. A whole section would be needed about the kitchen sink alone

    WARNING

    Some people should come with a warning label that warns you that he is going to lie and cheat on you.  I have had a man cheat on me in the past and I had not a clue so a nice warning label would be nice.  Cheating women should have to wear them as well.

    Warning Prolonged Exposure to Me Could Be Hazardous to Your Mental Health

    I totally agree with Queen of Comedy Sommore when she says men (and women) came with Warning Labels.  I also agree that I would go ahead and mess with them anyway lol  But hey, at least I would know what to look out for!

    Labels

    I thought all of you knew about warning labels on people.  They are tattooed on the right buttock of everyone.  So if you meet a nice guy or girl and wonder about them just pull their pants down -or dress up, and read the warning label.  That's how I do it. ...
