This is why I don't read instructions

Incoming Signals alerted me to this site, a collection of mystifying moments in product documentation. Some of my favorites:

The requisite Engrish entry.

The Army is prepared for ambiguous situations.

In case of fire, please stand here and inhale copious amounts of smoke while you try to figure out what this means.

There's a fetish for everybody.

Okay, it's more Engrish. "Don't mixed the mess."

Some assembly required before pre-assembly can take place.

If there's another joke for this illustration besides the one that's already been made, I haven't thought of it.

For god's sake, don't put it in the middle of the table.
