Hating everyone is easier than that. It's a pool full of Liberals.... Clinging to Obama-Care.

No, no ,no, you need a correction here.

It's a pool full of (p)rogressive LibTards, who are clinging onto Barry, Killery, and the Bern narratives and Agendas.

Instead of spending their Student Loans on Summer Break they should be spending it on REAL EDUCATION, not Alcoholism 101...

It's snowbird season again, they're flocking up at the beaches....Nothing like hundreds of wet bodies rubbing up against each other to take the Spring chill out of the water....

Don't forget the sunblock!

Of course were concerned about the safety of our guests and YES the deck area has a posted occupancy limit. When the deck area is getting too crowded we have the lifeguards usher the crowds into the pool which is not affected by the imposed limit.

problem solved.

So, I went to swim the other day, but the manager said I can't, because the day before I peed in the pool. I said, wait a minute, everyone pees in the pool. But he said, ya, that may be true, but not from the end of the diving board!

Breaking news....

In an attempt to set a new world record on how many people they could fit in a phone booth,... the phone booth exploded....

there are (4) people that are reported dead, (36) injured, (7) critically... and (1) reported birth and (7) women reportedly conceived of which (2) were by accident..

More news at the top of the hour.

btw,... for our Gen y and gen z... this is what a phone booth looks like.

Oh, go to the beach they said.

You can relax they said.

Much like Trumps cabinet, they knew nothing of which they spoke.

Also in the news, CNN reports that now is the time to go to the beach. MSNBC reports that the beach is uncrowded and the Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria is not present.

Enjoy!

Both our posts can be ruled to be bad English syntax. Was it large donuts that eat people, or large people that eat large donuts?

I understand they are like the Cicada, which they all hatch al at once, every 17 years and have only 24 hours to mate for the next generation,.... 17 years from now.

Yes, but do to pollution, and solar radiation, there are many mutations. Many of them are born with no color or flavor, they call them Cheerios, some have no color but some flavor, they call them Honey Nut Cheerios, The science of the mating habits of Fruit Loops is in it's infancy, We are learning more every day.

I also understand that at times it hard to tell them apart... and the only way is asking them if they like a good parade or not.
