Here’s a warning sign that gets its message across with some vivid language:
The text says:
DO NOT TOUCH
Not only will this kill you, it will hurt the whole time you’re dying.
On one hand, I think this sort of warning gets its message across well, with a touch of humor that helps grab your attention.
At the same time, I wonder if the humor dilutes the seriousness of the message.
What do you think? Would you pay more attention to a warning like this, or does the dark humor put you off?
