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

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

    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!

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

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

    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.
