  13. mickeygreeneyes | 6:16 am |

    Could I just stand in the water and pee and fart? That’s all I wanted to do anyway.

    If swim, water is relieving then. Otherwise it gets the stairs!

  22. d17nk | 10:30 am |

    and no warning if you can’t warn too!

  23. lolcat | 10:44 am |

    … and no smorking if you can’t smork!

  24. KB | 11:25 am |

    Swimming is free. It’s the drowning that they will charge you for!

  25. pauloo | 1:29 pm |

    and remember, don’t fall into water carefully If you can’t fall.

  26. Darth Na'vi | 2:04 pm |

    No reading this sign if you can’t read…

  29. emily | 2:17 am |

    Can I just play with the water?

  30. JD | 5:19 am |

    Obviously this sign wasn’t posted in Louisiana where those six dumbass teens drowned. Atleast the parents where smart enough to let them drown because they couldn’t swim either!

  31. Muddy | 8:24 am |

    No singing if you canĀ“t sing.

  32. Kitsune | 1:34 pm |

    This message brought to you by Captain Obvious of the Department of Redundancy Department.

  33. coffeebot | 12:54 pm |

    Please drown carefully

  34. Jeff | 6:37 pm |

    … because of monkeys

  35. amigo | 1:34 am |

    But isn’t this perfectly logical? How else would you phrase that?

  36. tekleader | 12:40 pm |

    No rain on your wedding day,
    no free ride when you’ve just paid,
    no good advice that you just can’t take…

  37. Jettra | 10:54 pm |

    The actual translation of this sign is:

    Warning to those who can’t swim…

    still doesn’t explain what they are warning them about, but at least it makes more sense than telling people who can’t swim – not to swim.

  38. Gerson | 2:20 am |

    No spreading wings if you cant fly.

  39. Seventy2rd o clock | 9:48 pm |

    Can I at least drive?
