Weird sign

Posted by

We spent a good hour & a half at the Palo Alto Junior Museum & Zoo today. It's a great place - with lots of fun activities for toddlers & a lil zoo to boot. And it's free all year round!

This sign tickled me. ^__^

LOL. If the animals were Singaporean, am sure even an innocent lingering look would constitute harrassment.

Btw, L who sold you your car is my new colleague!

A very detailed sign indeed! Can you do anything else to the animals if that particular verb isn't on the list? Surely you're not liable then!

:D Think that this sign is to warn people like me... :p I love to feed and touch animals. But guess the animals might think that I am poking, proding, pestering, harassing, and disturbing them instead of petting them..

haha :) i guess the zoo must hv had some pretty bad experiences with its clientele - mostly lil kids & toddlers who were fearless & curious enough to "disturb" the animals :)

so what kind of animal is that person feeding in the sign? did they have sock puppets there?

@Orson: heehee... no sock puppets of any kind there. :) I think the drawing in the sign is meant to appeal to the agegroup of the typical visitor of the zoo - which is like 4 or 5, hence the "sock puppet" likeness!
