Have fun at the beach!
Susan says, “There is something really funny about these warning icons. I am sure that humor wasn’t the intent at all, because the state or whoever is in charge here, really does want to keep visitors from harm. Sadly it is easy to see other ideas in these icons. I am especially drawn to the Jaws/rip current likeness and the It Came From Outer Space/unstable cliffs resemblance and The Creature From the Black Lagoon/beware of incoming tides similarity. Tragically, once you start to see them, you are done for. Do you see any other hapless similarities?”
Lucia says, “These illustrations caught my eye and made me stop and actually look at them and read the warnings. Yes, they made me chuckle, but I ‘got the picture’, so to speak. If they had been bullet points I would have walked by without a second glance. Maybe the humor was on purpose. What better way to imprint an important message on a people’s minds than by making them laugh?”
