please keep our grass clean

Out of all the lovely pictures we took at the Botanical Garden in Montreal, this is the one I'm posting on my blog.

I laughed when I saw this sign because at first glance it looked like it says "don't poop on the grass." Upon further examination those little brown droppings are rusty screws. I still think it looks funny though.

It does look like it could be poop, doesn't it? Grin!

i think they really don't want people pooping on the grass do you? so the rusty screws serve a purpose other than holding the sign on. i think they foresaw into the future that the placement of the screws would prevent people from pooping in the grass.

LOL...this is just too funny....I actually had to pick myself up off of the floor after seeing it. Thanks for making me laugh tonight.

It does look like poop! LOL Hey, I hope you haven't been run off by the heated discussions over at my place. It's not usually so controversial. Cheers!

Hi Jenn,
Life is a cartoon indeed. I often feel you don’t even have to look at others to see that. I often get a good laugh by looking at myself and the things I do. It’s very important these days to have a well developed “self irony”.
Thank you for commenting on my blog. My daughter is a sly fox, but it turns out I find it interesting to get to know you and others around the world. Have a nice week!

Thanks everyone for coming back after my blog mysteriously wouldn't work last night. I'm glad you were all as amused by the no pooping sign as I was.

Nothing against Canadians, Lisa, maybe the sign is because they know a lot of American visitors come by there, and they don't know what we might do!

I came across you, mindtwister, on lisa's blog. If anyone has not been over there, you need to read his story about "scents."

You make an interesting point Susie.

Jennifer, I've been visiting your blog. I like reading your stuff. I just usually don't have much to say when it comes to political discussions. I will come back and read more.

Thanks for coming by Nerdine's Mom, it is so interesting to meet people from Norway. I will be back to read more on your blog.

I left a comment yesterday, but as I am hearing from other's, blogger has been having some issues - among them are disappearing comments. Great sign, I had something profound to say, but it got lost in cyber-space, where, apparently, pooping is allowed.

I think your comment came up under xstream ponds.
