I can't vouch for this but ... Maybe ...

Maybe someone from Sweden can explain it all. This is supposed to be a warning printed on the instructions for a chainsaw in Sweden:

15. On a Swedish chain saw: "Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals."

Perhaps Swedish genitals are a little more... ehem... vulnerable than other places where chainsaws are used!

My guess with those warnings is always that some idiot actually did the thing in question, sued the company and one or other set of lawyers has forced them to print the warning afterwards so they don't get sued for the same thing again!
