I had to do a bit of research here.  Tyrrhenian Sea? Never heard of it. Sorrentine Peninsula? Well, that’s slightly familiar.  The peninsula gets its name from the town of Sorrento.  And the Tyrrhenian Sea is off the west coast of Italy. A major nearby city is Naples.

Capri is a small 4 square mile island in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the Sorrentine Peninsula, on the south side of the Gulf of Naples in the Campania region of Italy. The main town Capri on the island shares the name. It has been a resort since the time of the Roman Republic.

As heard on a recent news broadcast.

Label on a kitchen knife:  Warning - if knife falls, do not attempt  to catch.

Printed on a napkin depicting the area around Hilton Head, North Carolina - Warning:  Not for navigational use.

Label on an industrial strength heater, used to soften up things in the construction trade, and which can generate temperatures over a thousand degrees - Warning:  Do not use to dry hair.


  1. Now I'm thinking of Dean Martin songs. That's okay, I really like Dean Martin! ("Come back to Sorrento...." "In Napoli....")

  2. Re that warning: or your hair will be a thousand points of light...
