Save us from ourselves, part 2

Ah, a new year. With it comes hope for better days, peace on earth and perhaps even a little excitement—however, not too much excitement. We all know the old saying of “it’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye, in which case, it’s just fun”. Granted the last part of that saying isn’t as well known. . .

Yet, there are those who believe they must do all in their power to save people from themselves. While I applaud the effort to keep people from harm’s way, sometimes things go too far. After all, do you really need to tell someone not to eat shards of glass? Aren’t some things common sense? And, I would argue, if someone is going to eat shards of glass, I doubt they would heed a warning sign.

Here is yet another list of warning signs that have missed the mark (at least in my opinion).

Not even if you are REALLY thirsty.

How come I don't see more of these signs everywhere?

What do rocks and cows have in common?

And also that the pool is filled with water, not lemonade.

From the makers of the gingerbread house in "Hansel and Gretel".

For those who like to live life on the edge.

I'm bettin' he had it comin'.

It's the red, underlined word "NO" that shows they really mean it. 

I don't see anything wrong with this sign. Then again, I'm dyslexic.

Always nice to have options.

Reason #4,629 why I don't drink.

This needs to be part of every "Birds and the Bees" talk.

He was warned.
