Do not read while standing:
Words to live by, from a warning label on a small tractor: "Danger: Avoid Death."

That warning was selected Wednesday as the winner of the 11th annual "Wacky Warning Label Contest," sponsored by Michigan Lawsuit Abuse Watch. The contest is part of an effort to show the effects of lawsuits on warning labels.

....The $250 second place was given...for a label on an iron-on T-shirt transfer that warns: "Do not iron while wearing shirt."

Richard Goodnow...earned the $100 third-place prize for a label on a baby stroller featuring a small storage pouch that warns: "Do not put child in bag."

....Honorable mention went to Cyndi LaMonde, of Traverse City, for a label on a letter opener that says: "Caution: Safety goggles recommended."
