    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!

    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.
