You jumped right in with your comments, so bite me!

I posted to to demonstrate that it is still racist and offensive and so are those of you who see any humor in this picture, no matter the context!

Obviously, I'm in the minority among members and Admin. That paints a bleak picture of the humanity here.

Please pardon the error of juxtaposition.

The sign was meant to read

No Dishing or Fiving from bridge.

We regret that a sign is needed, but recent activity has made taking action a priority to keep the peace within the community.

Sorry for the lack of hydrology ... it's water under the bridge.

dish /diSH/ Learn to pronounce verb gerund or present participle: dishing

  1. 1. put food on to a plate or plates before a meal. "Steve was dishing up vegetables"
    synonyms:distribute, dispense, issue, disburse, hand out, give out, pass out, pass round; More
    antonyms:collect, reserve
    • dispense something in a casual or indiscriminate way. "the banks dished out loans to all and sundry"
    • offer or present something, especially something regarded as substandard. "is your ISP short-changing you by dishing up outdated and perhaps incorrect information?"

Hey, Patty. Did you just see Kaylee Dishing?
I'm going to Dish. Fiving 1)The act or state of trolling someone mentally/psychically and virtually.
2) A stupid nick name for someone called "captain". Lauren was fiving me the other day by the internet; I groaned afterwards.

Presumably, fishing and diving are still permitted from the banks adjacent to the bridge.

That's alright, you can go diving just past the bridge - but there's still no fishing.

This sign was put up after the 1st annual Red Neck convention where several people suffered "Severe Redneck" neck injuries,and several sand sharks were caught,(not to mention a few catfish with fleas.)

Never "Double D Dog Dare A RED Neck".
