Yet Another Silly Summer Sunday Sweepstakes!

Stole this--with permission, of course--from Veggie Mom over at Eat Your Veggies! Her SIL went on VAY-cay to the Gulf Coast last summer, and came upon this sign at a beach where she had planned to go shelling!

You know the drill--come up with a caption for this photo & post it in the comments box. We don't give out enormous, expensive swag in this contest. The only thing you might win is the satisfaction in a job well done--and, of course, you'll earn a few chuckles along the way!

If you swim here, you will die. But, please, remember to die behaving properly and fully clothed. Have a great vacation, and refer us to your friends!

"Remember to remove all trash and dead bodies when you leave the beach"


Funny thing is that this was a sign at a beach about an hour from where I live.

Veggie Mom said...

Just a sign of the times, I guess!

"Crooked Island" -- Where you can find the ghost of Richard Nixon. Day and night he recites, "I am not a crook!"
Enter at your own risk.

Upon getting her first public school teaching contract at Crooked Island Elementary School, Ms. Smith was slightly surprised when she was required to read this human resources document outlining various employment precautions. On the back of the document was a list of survival tips for teaching under NCLB.

riptides are caused by alligators pulling you up and sharks pulling you under. Splashing may occur.

"That place where you're standing to read this sign? It's pretty dangerous, too. And don't forget to wear sunscreen...

Have a Nice Day!"

Darren said...

Cursing not allowed when you cut your feet on sharp rocks or get stung by jellyfish. You're going to die if an alligator or a shark gets you, so cursing like a sailor is tolerated in those situations.

Have a blast!*

*of course, watch for unexploded mines as well.

Mommy, Mommy! Can we swim now? Can we swim now?

They forgot to add "Uncle Ricky's blinding sock tan" and "Aunt Margaret in a bikini" in the "Beware of" section.

Nude trespassers will be eaten.

I just got back from the Florida Gulf Coast myself, though I didn't see any signs like this. This just strikes me as a 3rd grader MAGNET, though...

DANGER? LET ME AT IT!!!

And don't forget, wait 30 minutes before swimming!!!

Famous last words of every redneck, Hey, Watch this, I bet I can beat ya to the beach....

"Education lawmakers take over local Parks & Rec Department."

'Cause it reads like half the crap I get from Sacramento.

"Too bad your man couldn't spring for a nice vacation and had to take you here instead. Sucks to be you."

"Darn it! And I had my heart set on skinnydipping with Jaws in the riptide today. Hmpf."
