Good Advice

I just moved to an apartment with shelves instead of drawers in the bathroom, and now all of my bathroom-type appliances are out in the open, including my hairdryer. For a change I followed instructions and left the cautionary tags on it, one of which says

KEEP AWAY FROM WATER -
DANGER!
But the tag curls around the cord, so most of the time it looks like it says
KEEP AWAY FROM
DANGER!
Good advice, and now I donít even need a TV to get the daily dose of low-grade paranoia normally supplied by the local news.
