Coast Guard discovers disturbing fact about children

Kids Don't Float


Kid's, they don't float...


...so, they must be witches!




Sorry, it's early, I'm not entirely awake yet, and was looking at pictures I took last weekend on our trip down to Seward.  I saw this sign at the Alaska Sea Life Center - and immediately thought of the "She's a witch!" scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.


  1. They may not float, but they do put the "p" in the ool.

  2. ::snort::

    Thanks, John, that made me laugh. Which is helping me wake up.

  3. Ye gods! Have we really underfunded the Coast Guard to the point that we have some poor otter in a life jacket dragging kids to safety? Write to Congress!

  4. Well, see, Eric, I think the real question is why is PFD Otter wearing flowered swim trunks instead of official Kevin Costner approved Rescue Swimmer shorts? Also, I could be wrong, but it appears that PFD Otter has his Mae West tied with a granny knot instead of a square knot, and as everybody knows that's just a recipe for disaster once the life jacket gets wet.

  5. How strange is it that when reading the sign, the first thing that popped into my head was Python?

    thanks for the smile..i can use it. (it is my monday today..back to work tonight)

  6. Children do float when they have been blessed by the God of Tapeworms.

    Please do not forget your regular obscience to My Vermificent Self.

  7. Argh! Tapeworms are the slinky tools of witches. Damn children, damn them.

  8. Do not taunt My Vermificence!

  9. I'm not taunting you Tapeworm God, I don't even want to be in the same room with you.

  10. "What also floats in water?
    Very small rocks!"

    Cracks me up every time.
