13 Warning labels from Samhain that made me laugh

I shop a bit at Samhain, and someone over there has a sense of humor that tickles my funny bone:

  1. Warning, this title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language, mad seduction schemes, and the hard fall of a drop dead sexy hunk.
  2. Warning: This title contains the following: lots of explicit sex, going strong long after the cows come home, graphic language that’d make your mama blush, light bondage with bullropes, ménage a trois, and – yee-haw! – hot nekkid cowboy man-love.
  3. Warning this title contains the following: somewhat explicit love scenes, drunken earls, irritating relatives and bathing activities that leave the floor wet and the hero and heroine exhausted.
  4. Warning, this title contains the following: more sexual tension than you can shake a stick at…
  5. Warning: This title contains the following: Wahoo Sex and Wash-Your-Mouth Language (Explicit Sex and Graphic Language)
  6. Warning, this title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language, ménage a trois, violence, hot nekkid man-love.

LOL, I guess I've never read the Samhain warning labels beyond the first tame one they put on mine when the company first started. I'll be paying better attention now.

i'm wondering what neon sex is

For the most part the authors themselves write the warnings. I had one for my book that I thought was pretty amusing but it got vetoed (sigh) and then uvetoed but I didn't put it back.

Really? That's kind of cool!

Ooh, I could make a contest out of that-make a humorous warning label for your book...

Lauren Dane said...

I'm totally jealous of how fabulously creative some of these are!!

I just found your blog, it was a really great read! Incase it is of any interest, a while back i managed to find a british labels company who sold me a batch of plain labels for a really low price. If you are all interested then it may be worth visiting their website.
