Now my French is a little rusty and some of the text is obscured, but this clearly looks like these people require INSTRUCTIONS for proper use of a plastic bag! Here in the US, the only thing on the bag is the store logo (sometimes) and the ol' "Dont suffocate yourself with this, asshole." Here's what I can make out, someone correct me if I'm wrong:
1. Remove beret. Take shower. Replace beret. Determine proximity to local soccer stadium. If within 1000m, move to reduce likelihood of soccer-related riot interruption of bag packing. Place whatever periodical you are reading that is currently bashing Lance Armstrong on a table or flat surface nearby. Any and all slim cigarettes are to be extinguished.
2. Place baguette, mime-esque red and white vertically striped shirt, Eiffel tower replica and new carton of slim cigarettes carefully into bag.
3. Burn effigy of George W. Bush. Hug a terrorist. Slip cheese-covered fingers into and around bag handles. Carry bag in friendly arm-slinging motion. Chant pro-UN slogan.
On a sidenote, Hung: do you ever take part in aviation-related discussions, or did Allah or some other almighty designate you to inform us about such crucial issues like the one you are referring to in this thread? And is that the reason you agreed to lash out US$ 5 a month?

Quoting Mrniji (Reply 1): do you ever take part in aviation-related discussions
Not on this site. To be honest, I don't give a shit about when NW is retiring its DC-9s, what livery looks best on the ERJ-135 or what percentage of male flight attendants smoke pole. I'm interested in aviation, just not the every day operations of every airline. And some of the photos are cool, too. But I'm not interested in congratulating every photographer inthe forum every time they get 25 photos uploaded, either.
Quoting Gkirk (Reply 4): Actually that actually shows the number of ways in which a Frenchman can surrender to a plastic bag. About 50 or 60.
And GKirk come raining down with a classic blow. Had the French not already surrendered and retreated, it surely would have been a ko.
Erm...I've never seen a hammer with instructions...just bought a Philips-head screwdriver at Wal-Mart last night - didn't see instructions with that either. The screws next to it? No instructions either. I think Bongo's been shopping at a "special" stores.

Quoting WellHung (Reply 11): Fortunately, they already know how to use our currency, no instructions necessary...
1. That is cleary a lack of respect to a Country that has been suffering a lot mainly because of the USA consumption.
2. You American consumers are the ones who use you own currency in that way...just check the stats to see which Country consumes more

Hmmm... Yet another useless bash-France thread....
I don't know what is written on French plastic bags, but I'm 99% sure that is similar to the Italian plastic bags, where you can find the phrases: "respect the environment, don't throw away" or "reutilize it for your trash can"...
3) Mettez le a la poubelle, il pourra etre transformer
Put it in the bin, it could be transformed.
Now on the other side of the bag, I think you have:
"The combustion of this bag generates enough energy to power a 60 Watt lightbulb for 10 minutes"
Now, what about:
"Don't put any animal in your microwaves"
"Very hot coffee! Can injure"
... and many others
If I were american, I would not have start this thread. Here in Europe we don't need on the mirrors the "WARNING! Objects may appear closer than they are" DUH! You learn that when you get your license, don't you?
Beginning like that, we could have instructions for every single thing: "WARNING! To overtake, check your back", "WARNING! Adjust the mirror before driving"... and you end up with a useless full of instruction mirror. Interesting...
