Are People Really This Stupid? adult content

I have a yeast infection and I bought a pack of those anti-fungal vaginal suppositories and, while reading the packaging, it actually warns you not to put the suppositories or the cream in your mouth. Are people really this stupid? What about the phrase "anti-fungal vaginal suppositories" makes people think that this is something that they want in their mouth?

  • Well people are smart enough to put shampoo bottles up their A** so why not put the cream in their mouth?

  • They have to put the warning on there for legal purposes and if it gets on your hands and so on...

  • Yes, people are really that dumb. That's why corporate attorneys have had to put those kind of disclaimers on their products so they are protected in potential lawsuits from those idiots.

  • Yes, people are that stupid. My mom is a nurse and you'd be amazed at the stupid things people do. The sad thing is, those same stupid people usually don't read directions.

  • Of course people are that stupid! I heard a story from a cousin who is a doctor about a patient who got pregnant because she took a birth control pill each time she had sex, not every day!

    For every crazy warning, there is a stupid person who has done the thing warned about and who has probably sued the company who makes the product for not warning them.

  • Unfortunately, yes they are. It's just like the warning labels on the rubbermaid bin lids that tell you not to seal your child inside of one. It's happened somewhere, and prompted the makers to put the warning on it. I heard one the other day, there was someone letting their child ride on one of those quarter machine tuck rides, and as it started up, a voice came from the machine saying "Parents, please do not leave your child unattended in this ride." It's sad, really that society has come to this. Ever seen that movie Idiocracy? Hilarious movie, but also the scary truth about how we're going to end up if the stupidity continues.

  • What about people who are mentally challenged or kids who have to take care of this themselves? Legally, they have to cover thier asses, morally, you never know who is trying to treat themselves at home.
    Also, oral thrush is a yeast infection in the mouth & sometimes medications are the same thing just labled for differnt uses, so someone may think it's ok because they just don't know any better.
