Why not? I have 9 more…
Is it wrong that I read that as “Please don’t finger the animals”? Yeah, it is.
Yeah, it is… This could be “Please don’t finger the animals” or possibly “Fingers, please don’t feed the animals”, too, if it’s for someones who can’t control his fingers… That’s bad in two ways!
Thank goodness I have toes to feed them.
Wrong and creepy. Good show.
You may want to talk to all the unfortunate people who violated this rule before you put this sign up. I’m sure only one or two of them were literally trying to feed thier fingers to the animals, the others prolly just wanted to poke the animal in the eyes. Again this is all speculation on my part, but I’m always right, sooooo…
@ AV44, you are not alone. I read it that way too…
Soft on the outside. Crunchy on the inside! Protein and calcium… I’m not seeing a problem here.
I’ve seen that sign in real life. It was at a petting zoo at the state fair.
Each animal pen had a couple of small shovels like a child would use in a sand box. The zoo’s owner would sell you alfalfa pellet, you put them in the shovel and fed the animals. Anybody who fed from their hands risked getting bitten.
Most of the people doing the feeding were under 10 years old, many were under 5. The sign is an attention-grabbing way to get those kids and the parents of the youngest ones to stay safe.
Really? it looks photoshopped.
I need that sign on my rat cage. You won’t believe how many people feed their fingers to the rats. “Don’t poke your fingers through the bars, they might think it’s something edible”.. ‘no really they won’t”…poke poke poke… ‘OUCH he bit me!”
I saw the same sign at a local agricultural fair in Topsfield, Massachusetts, and it makes me laugh every time I go.
For some reason, I get Jack Sparrow’s voice going, “Whose fingers? Your fingers? Utterly deceptive coddlespeak says I.”
they don’t ban feeding thumbs, though
