    It should have read, “Caution: Products of Bad Parenting Ahead.”

    There’s SO much ambiguity out there. “Would you like to come over for dinner?” “The koala eats shoots and leaves.” …

    “Watch Children” sign, if you sit and watch the children they might think you are weird!

    There should be another sign as you get closer:

    It should go from “Children Watch” to “Children Warning”

    Maybe also use flashing lights: from Yellow to Red.

    Sounds great… What kind of watch, and how many children do they want for it?

    Pig should have been suspicious that the sign was apparently posted in the middle of a field rather than next to a roadway.

    we see 飛び出し注意 (watch out for kids rushing out) signs all the time…

    …and i just think, are they telling us to slow down and aim carefully…?

    It took me a few minutes to get the joke; when they have a sign that says “Caution Watch for Children”, it means to watch out for children if they’re crossing the street, but here, it means to watch out for children because they might show up and beat you up when you least expect it.

    There was one on the way to my elementary school that said SLOW – Children – Walking (in a diamond). I always wanted to add one that said FAST – Children – Ride.

    Children are best seen and not heard. —Seen on the platter, well roasted and with an apple in the mouth, attended by a generous spouted bowl of gravy….

    Dangerous kid-gangs like this roam the streets of almost any large town or city….
