    Well, bugger.

  2. mo,,shimoshi says:

    Well, maybe I don’t WANNA swim in your stupid pool.

  3. Someone says:

    So, if I fall in the water, I have to drown or suffer the consequences?

  4. Mr A says:

    That would be a pond with chlorine in then?

  5. RoyBatty42 says:

    Hmmmm, sure smells like photo shop around here….

  6. Me says:

    But, can I pee in it?

  7. the cat says:

    It’s shopped. That “CRO” is added. I can tell from the pixels.

    I guess this is their way of saying the pool is closed?

  8. JimmyMcJimbo says:

    When its sink or swim, and swimming is prohibited, you are left with one option.

    I like the fact that this is embossed on a stainless steel plaque, obviously not a temporary rule for the winter months.

  9. Jim says:

    It’s shopped because the CRO has compression artifacts around it? Just like all the other letters in the image? That’s some fine police work there, Lou.

  12. Jami says:

    I think the “Cro” is part of “Crown Plaza.”

  13. The One Guy says:

    Anyone else notice that “the cat” is joking?

  14. guolin says:

    So, it’s either tread or drown. Good plan.

  15. the cat says:

    @The One Guy: Apparently they did not. 😦

  16. Bert says:

    HEY! Phelps! Get out of there – this one’s just for lookin’.

  17. Jami says:

    @The cat – to be fair so many people are always crying “photoshop” it’s hard to tell the jokers from the legit trolls. And it’s not like tone of voice can be interpreted in an internet post.

    Mother: Remember, kids. Where are we?
    Kids: A pool!
    Mother: What can’t we do?
    Kids: Swim!
    Mother: All right. Now, go have fun.

  19. Triple M says:

    Why is it called a SWIMMING pool if no swimming is allowed? That’s oxymoronic.

    Hello people…

    I work for Crowne Plaza in KL and this image in NOT our signage.
    Definitely a trick as the name of the hotel was purposely cut out. Otherwise why bother posting it when you dont have the fact?????
    Such a idiot isnt!

  21. Sarge says:

    No Swimming? Alright then. Now, if you’ll excuse me I need to go pee in your pool.

  22. Xer says:

    Jimmy, Kuala Lumpur doesn’t have winter months last time I checked

  23. *sigh* says:

    reminds me of that jungle-jim in primary school we weren’t allowed to climb on.

  24. G. James says:

    Val: So Biff said, “I’m going swimming”.
    Biff: Oh, I was all ready, trunks and everything! Nose plug!
    Val: He had this little nose plug, you should’ve seen him.
    Biff: And I went marching up to the lifeguard, and he was a Shamboni, you know, those big foreheads?
    Val: Great big forehead!
    Biff: And I said, where’s the pool? And he said…
    Biff, Val, Jethro: [Jethro mouthing sardonically] “The pool is abstract!”
    Val: It wasn’t a real pool!
    Biff: It was a concept!
    The Doctor: And you wore a nose plug!
    Biff: I was like this! [pinching his nose] Mmm… where’s the pool?
    [Laughter]

    Pool’s closed due to AIDS

  26. Anon says:

    This type of sign is actually not that uncommon in certain countries. It’s basically a way to provide a swimming pool without being held responsible for potential injuries caused by it.

  27. JAWS says:

    Well, that just defeats the purpose!
