That's great! If you hadn't told us, I think we would have all thought you wrote that one. Oh, the wonderful jokes about drowning and hypothermia we would have all been making. Good times.
It's A Wonderful Life. (grin)Dr. Phil
hahaha that is so funny. I wonder if they realized the implications there.
notice(n.) The notice says that there is no skating.(vb.) Little Dick's parents didn't notice their son flailing about in the ice, going into shock.
What a treat to see this!
The notice doesn't say why there's no skating on Mr Big's private moat.Normally the crocodiles keep trespassers out; it's only when it freezes that the guards get to shoot them.
And here's a rare glimpse of life imitating art.
This is great! What is the publication that you have for the original children's dictionary?
It's one thing to 'NOTICE' and wax poetically just as John Gould Fletcher did in his 1886 ode to 'The Skaters': BLACK swallows swooping or gliding In a flurry of entangled loops and curves; The skaters skim over the frozen river. And the grinding click of their skates as they impinge upon the surface, Is like the brushing together of thin wing-tips of silver.A 'WARNING' of NO SKATING would have made all the difference to poor Dick who unfortunately crossed the River Styx and now sleeps with the fishes.
hahahah....I give this a double lol!-Johnp.s. My captcha word = chnobl.....NO JOKE!!! hahaah
Oh good, we're making jokes about drowning and hypothermia anyway :)
The original book was called The Giant Picture Dicionary for Boys and Girls and was published in 1949. So now you know! Good drowning and hypothermia jokes, btw :-)
