#200 – No Fun Allowed

Photo taken: September 19, 2012

Welcome to my Top 200 Photos I’ve Taken countdown!  Feel free to enjoy the fresh imagery you are about to see every day until the end of this year.  And pay no attention to signs put out by Fun Nazis such as this one from a park along Lake Huron that I visited on my trip to Detroit in 2012.  No booze, no dogs, no motor cars, not a single luxury.  Why not just put up a barbed wire fence with NO TRESPASSING signs around the park instead if you didn’t want anyone to have a good time on the grounds.  Well, it doesn’t say that sex is forbidden in the park (unless “ball playing” counts)… so lovers, have at it!

  1. ha! you visited elysee palace once? when? that’s an unfunny place too… at least for the common people ;O)

  2. If they paid by the word for that sign they posted they sure could have saved some $$ with your suggestion of “NO FUN ALLOWED”……I’m surprised they don’t have a dress code. Speaking of which, the sign does NOT say “no nude bathing”…………hmm….


    • It just hit me that it’s odd that despite all of the NO FUN rules that the park is apparently open until 11 PM…. which is an awfully late curfew for a park where you can’t even do anything.

    Wow, what a lot of sitting in the grass and don’t spill your non-alcoholic drinks on the grass!!
    Hope you have a fun weekend, Evil Squirrel. 🐿️ Well, it looked like a squirrel for a minute.
    Thanks for the chuckles! 😀

    Huh. So I can play frisbee and have a closed fire, then? Ok. Sounds good to me.

    • If it’s not specifically listed (or they just ran out of room on the sign, more likely), then it should be perfectly legal. Or at least a good lawyer would be able to get you off the hook for any fine imposed…

  5. ody N biskit…..well, leest de squirrelz iz a loud ta N joy….may bee 🙂 !!!! ♥☺

  6. Seriously? Egad…no fun indeed. They probably prefer Pepsi over Coke too in that park.

  7. Ladybuggz says:

    & probably no Long Hair, bare feet or short shorts! Bummer!! lol…

  8. A friend told me a long time ago that in Europe you assume that if they don’t tell you it’s allowed, you assume it is forbidden. In the U.S., we assume if they don’t say it’s forbidden, it IS allowed.

    Is that true anymore?

    • I can’t speak for Europe since I’ve never been there before, but assume its legal unless expressly forbidden is very much the American Way. We do love our legal loopholes…

  9. draliman says:

    True, it’s such an extensive list of “do nots”, we must assume anything not on the list is okay.

  10. Trisha says:

    With their late closing time, I suspect they should have made a completely different list of banned activities: no nudity, no sexual acts of any kind, no sex trafficking, no drug dealing, no human trafficking, no open defecation, no heroin, no meth, no cocaine…. And the naive people in charge of this park are worried about dogs and bicycles! 😂

    • No open defecation? Not in America, dammit! Well, there’s always Mecca parking lots for that if the park sign says no (I wish I was just joking!)

      • Trisha says:

        Yuck. I wish you were just joking too. I am waiting for someone to tackle the creation of a pictograph sign prohibiting crapping in non-designated, toilet-less areas. The dog one is funny enough, I can’t wait to see how they handle a human one, if they dare try.
