Oh, right.. yeah, pretty much any ultra-cheap electronic consumables will have some variation of comedy.

The instructions for the RC helicopters I bought from Jaycar are pretty amusing

Here's my one...



years ago I was at a fish & chip shop... the arcade game machine had a sign saying "NO WARK" written on it. Clearly the machine was in a state of disrepair and not currently operational.


I walked over to have a closer look, because it's not every day you see a cool sign like that.
Then the lady behind the counter BARKS at me - "NO WARK, NO WARK"... "um, yeah, no wark, I can see that".
