WGOM CW Survivor Archives – Challenge 8 – Warning Label

Write a warning label for something:

A twenty-sided die –

Although the shape is irregular, this twenty sided die is NOT an extradimensional polyhedron that will tear the fabric of the space-time continuum. Use of this die will NOT create an alternate reality in which cause and effect no longer have any relation. More specifically, it will NOT make it okay for you to avoid the ramifications of murdering your own grandfather by sleeping with your own grandmother like in that one Futurama episode, so stop leering at your grandma, pervert!

S: This is, of course, absurd, but the caps to emphasize and the specific accusations are too funny to overlook here.

B: Yes! A warning label that makes absolutely no sense is perfect, but this author executes it as well. The universe theme is funny in its own right, but the sharp diversion to Oedipus complex is gold. Finally, the label itself getting personal with the owner is fantastic and what more warning labels should do. They might work better that way.

I kind of struggled with this one.  I had a lot of false starts before dashing this one off in about 10 minutes.  The right amount of absurdity can go a long way, I guess.  Our team remains completely intact at this point, no team losses yet.
