Instructions are boring. Necessary, but boring. And, more often than not, they’re incredibly poorly written.

So, imagine my surprise when I not only receive well-written instructions but a set that’s fun to read.

“Confuzzled? Contact…”

“Yea. The boring stuff… but read it so you don’t jack things up! Apologies to all the Jacks in the world.”

“Don’t feed to children!”

“Free toy surprise inside every box” about a drill bit.

“Phil wants his tools back” playing off the name Phillip’s screwdriver.

And the final step on the flip side, “Have a drink. You’re done!”

This whole thing cracked me up.
