    It must be a trap meant to find people with a proper understanding of english i.e. enemies of the state

    Communism 101: If I’m not happy, no one can be.

  38. pr | 4:49 am |

    ROFL. It actually says: “Playing [sports] is strictly prohibited.”

  39. DeanAckles | 8:30 pm |

    If you have fun here, and get caught, run to the “Dying Prohibited” zone!

  40. o_not_him_again | 8:19 pm |

    Violators will be shot. Officers will be shot for laughing at the violators.

  41. Atecom | 11:00 pm |

    China tries its hand at a new form of prohibation.

  42. Lindsey | 4:26 pm |

    I would like this more if it wasn’t posted in all the orphanages. But I think the sign above it is worse, “Remember, you have no parent.”

  43. Ghost08 | 2:20 am |

    Rules are made to be broken.

  48. TTner | 4:29 pm |

    Oh it seems some experts know China better than Chinese.
    In my 20 years’ life I’ve never seen this kind of signs in my country.

  49. andrew | 11:45 am |

    Chinese rules on truth in advertising are very strict.

    “Because of monkeys”……

  56. Lora | 8:04 pm |

    Maybe it’s reverse psychology?

  57. Lora | 8:06 pm |

    If the Villains at Disneyland had their way…

  58. Lora | 8:11 pm |

    Well, there isn’t a sign that says “Complaining Prohibited” so I guess I can do that all I want…Oh wait, that would be fun the same as fun, wouldn’t it? Shhhhoot!

  59. igiboydeguzman | 8:38 pm |

    Well, you can seriously complain about the lack of fun…

    I wonder why most make captions about parks and playgrounds; the only reference to that is the initial caption, “Communist playgrounds suck.”

    …and if the Villains had their way, they would break their own law by having fun from prohibiting everyone else to have fun.

  60. Kevin | 9:30 pm |
