    How to drown and be popular responsibly:
    English speakers, don’t swim to the left.
    Arabic speakers, don’t swim to the right.

    Since drowning has become so popular lately, here are a few tips on successful drowning accidents compliments of the Muscat Municipality!

  5. Tom | 4:27 am |

    If you want to be popular, you have to be willing to swallow. Water..

    Drown at the Wadi, out in the street…
    Willy and the Poorboys are playin’
    Bring a nickle, tap your feet.

    Drowning by accident is now popular, drowning on purpose is so yesterday.

    Oh man… I can’t wait to drown and be popular!

  12. Mista Bob Dobalina | 7:40 am |

    What I’m wondering is the shorter Hindi text underneath. What does it say, and does it say it correctly?

  13. Bob* | 8:00 am |

    I wanna be a popular buoy too!

  14. bridget | 8:55 am |

  16. dangevin | 10:26 am |

    Keep away from Wadis. He pees in the pool.

  17. dangevin | 10:26 am |

    That puffy, blue-in-the-face look is all the rage.

  18. mamabutton | 10:46 am |

    A question, not a caption: Wasn’t there a deodorant soap named Life Buoy that was supposed to protect you from bad smells?

  19. Classic Steve | 10:47 am |

    Well, popular with the spectators, anyway…

    Traffic accidents are so last year

  22. Ralph Hamilton | 2:41 pm |

    Yes. Drowning is number one, on our popular ways to die. Followed by traffic accidents, gunshot, poison, and ceremonial disembowelment.

  23. Pete | 4:05 pm |

    Interesting how Hindi is at the bottom of an Omani sign.

  24. Ralph Hamilton | 4:08 pm |

    Stay away from deep waters, and don’t act like fools,
    Stay away from the rivers, and oceans, and pools,
    For the waters will drown you, and your body will lay,
    On the side of the Wadi, for many a day.

    (Sorry about that Johnny Cash)

  25. Ralph Hamilton | 4:10 pm |

    Yes Pete.
    These damn furreigners, can’t even speak their own language.

  26. Ralph Hamilton | 4:14 pm |

    (Edit) Stay away from the rivers, pits, oceans, and pools.

  27. Mista Bob Dobalina | 2:16 am |

    The gulf states are full of Indian people who live there for work. The Hindi text is for them; but the thing is, what soes it say there?

  28. DrLex | 9:28 am |

    “Drowning for Dummies” is available at our souvenir shop.

  32. DropkickMurphy | 6:26 am |

    Get killed, get noticed.

  33. garudamon11 | 11:22 am |

  34. vivin | 8:43 am |

    The hindi text says:

    Be careful near the Wadis! There is a danger of drowning! Please keep an eye on children!

  35. mangoe | 2:52 am |

    While the life buoy protects you and your kids, it does not have the capacity to protect unfriendly grandparents or unwanted inlaws.
