Label the Nations Day


I thought of a game today. Picture those little warning labels or mini-instruction signs you see on products everywhere. Now think of one particular one and then link it to a country of your choice. Hey Presto… it’s “Label the Nation”. So J’accuse declares today a “Label the Nation” Day and readers are invited to submit their suggestions. I promise to make a post with all the ideas once we have a good number. Incidentally I am told that the Comments link does not always work in all browsers (Firefox for example – thanks Gary). While we are working on solving the problem I found a roundabout way of posting Comments. You basically link on the Post Title in the archives (Hot Off the Press) section – then you should be able to post comments. Also in a magnanimous move I will also start allowing anonymous comments again. Remember “Stupid is what stupid does”.

So here are my ideas to set the ball rolling:

May Contain Traces of Nuts
United States of America
Keep Refrigerated
Iceland
This Side Up
Australia
No Animals Have Been Harmed in the Production of this Film
Malta
Parental Advisory: Explicit Content
Sweden
May Contain Small Parts
Luxembourg
Remember: Objects in the Mirror are actually Behind You
Greece
May Cause Drowsiness
Finland
Danger Explosives
North Korea
Handle With Care
China

    Ok. Gozo quip is accepted although it is not officially a country (yet it has all the makings of a great nation). For today we concentrate on Nations… next week we can try something else.

    Thanks also to Pierre for this non-entry:

    Parental Guidance Rated (PG)
    The Gozo Curia

  4. Denmark:
