It's a small world, but I wouldn't want to paint it.

It reminds me of the signs which are popping up all over the place near me. "Drive like your children live here."
The problem is, they don't know me, nor my children, nor how I raise my children.
If they did, they would rush out and take down those signs!
I want to have a sign in my yard which reads, " If you seen my kid in the street, not paying attention to cars, see how close you can come to hitting him and lay on the horn", but its too wordy.

How about a grizzly proof suit for protection?

A day without laughter is a day wasted- Charlie Chaplin

When wrestling a grizzly bear, you have to keep at it until the bear gets tired, not when you get tired.

My cousin needs one of those, he has black bears on his porch, he lives in northern VA near Griggs.

A large black bear can open a 55 gallon barrel like a can opener on a can of tuna. I'll pass.

I'd like to have one to purposefully scoop up dirty bums and carry them to the next town (if they'll hang on long enough).
