It’s “and ME” and pointing out errors this annoying isn’t being a grammar Nazi.
That carousel was probably taped off for destruction. Those things were so dangerous. I remember multiple broken bones and head lumps. SO MUCH FUN!!! Miss those days. Lol.
“Papa! It says, ‘Grand opening. Come and play!’…Honest!”
This is hilarious. The playground tape, the make-up. The whole thing!
Forbidden fruit always tastes sweeter! My mom used to shake her head (at us, most likely) & say: “Why did the little boy decide to put beans up his nose? Because his mom said ‘Don’t put beans up your nose!'”
…of my brothers and ME, not of my brothers and I.
He’s from Slovakia and English is his second language.
You are waisting you’re breath. I have learned to just except the incorrect usage of words.
B, you’re killing me here….
I can’t stand the “and I” when it should be “and me”, either. Arghh!
“Waisting”? I see what you did there. 😉
“Waisting”? and “except”? Yikes. Someone needs to get the mote out of his own eye.
Yeah… he did it on purpose. The “he he” at the end is the clue there.
Oh, awkward family photos. The place to be when it comes to correcting the grammar of strangers. Get of you’re hi horse. :D.
Seriously, a place of fun and lightheartedness…let’s keep it that way. 🙂 🙂
one can be lighthearted and fun and grammatically correct
Amen Julia and Cay! To all the “grammar Nazis” have you thought about how hard the english language is? We have so many rules it’s hard to keep them straight sometimes. Especially if it wasn’t your strong subject in school. I would have used the sentence “my brothers and I” too….:)
the caution tape makes it safer, actually.
That does not look like caution tape that got put up for legitment reasons, looks far more like some teens had some fun with a few rolls of caution tape. Note the trees and the background
and the multiple wrappings on the equipment. i would hope that police would be a bit less wasteful for a real crime scene.
The tape reads “caution” and “danger”….nowhere does is say police line. It could be construction, tree removal or any number of other reasons.
WTH is with the make up on the little girl??
Maybe it’s face paint?
This is awesome
I find the full-face playground make-up equally as interesting as the obliviousness to danger.
She looks like a member of the Misfits from the 80’s cartoon “GEM!”
