what the sign should say

The sign should say- "go have fun, watch that you don't ram into your friends!"

Instead, (i'd show you if I weren't too lazy to walk the quarter mile back to the playground equipment)
it said" don't let your kids wear anything with strings because s/he might hang themselves
don't let your kids sit on the slide if it can cook eggs
don't let your kid slide with a knife
don't let your kids climb on the top of the ladder with a pole to balance
don't let your kids wrap a bag around their head and try to breathe while on equipment
don't let your kids swing in circles and ram into their friends
don't let your kids play if equipment is jagged and knife like
don't let your kids play with guns while on playground
don't give your kids bullets
don't let your kids lick the pole because of salmonella
don't let your kids eat paint

get it?  Our country is such a sue/court happy country that I am sure the playground maker had been sued for every one of these things.

How did we all ever grow up without being watched so carefully back in the day? Then again, maybe we didn't need the warnings because we just accepted responsibility for our actions?

Sue them! Sue them all! Bwahahahahaha!

Is this for real? Because if it is: absolutely ridiculous!

Like my mum always says: soon they will put 'best before' dates on toilet paper!

For all those parents who give their kids bullets and knives in case there arises a violent emergency on the slide... geez. This is nuts.

I have to admit that i had a comment in mind but as soon as i read what everyone else said i kinda peed a little myself from laughing. Especially with the comment about the violent emergency! lol
That is probably the weirdest sign ever!

I call it the spoon-fed generation. This use to drive me completely crazy wondering why people weren't figuring out common sense things like the note with the report card envelopes means that the note should go home with the report cards. The spoon-fed generation does not figure this stuff out and signs like that have to be for them. We have gone far past survival of the fittest, they all do now. - Hugs and sparkles - WG
