Fire Kills Children!

Submitted by: back of a matchbox – took it myself via Oddly Specific

But adults will be fine. No, really, try it out. You’ll see I’m totally not lying.

    I must be having a bad day because the first thing that came into my head was, “they say that like it’s a bad thing.”

    Am I the only one who thinks the picture looks like a stick figure version of Mr. Bill?

    Ah, the match boxes of the UK… what joys 🙂

    We have these matches almost everywhere by us. I remember them being in our chemistry class and the teacher taking the complete piss out of whoever put that on there.

    So we have to strike the children gently? How are they ever going to get the point?

  9. Sarge says:

    Remember: If you find a child being killed by fire, strike gently and away from body.

    How come something with that warning has a label to the left that contains “sugar”, “rice mixture” and what looks like “strawberry jam”? o.O

  11. ClearWater says:

    What do sugar, rice mixture and straw(?)berry jam have to do with matches?

  12. DeadBob says:

    So, only strike children on the head or limbs?

    well no duh!

    WTF? has no one seen a match box before! all my boxes say this (UK if that makes a difference)

    its a UK matchbox. basically two thirds of the box are dedicated to a delicious cake recipe, and then there’s a tiny section about not incinerating your loved ones.

    i think it’s nice all the helpful advice on parenting they’re giving us. not only are they telling us that our children are flammable, but they’re also handing out some darned good advice on how to humanely beat your child by striking gently and away from the body. in an age where most companies seem cold and soulless, this one seems to really care. thanks guys!

    You’d think it’d be common sense, but since my employment in the burn unit, I’ve decided some people just need to be told that fire is hot.

    I noticed this on some SHIPS matches we bought.
