Nothing is Foolproof – Nothing

CAUTION: THIS IS NOT A FLOTATION DEVICE.

DO NOT LEAVE CHILD UNATTENDED WHILE IN USE.

USE ONLY UNDER COMPETENT SUPERVISION.

Even something so simple as a classic vinyl beach ball isn’t foolproof. We sometimes loose sight of the meaning of words. Foolproof is one such ticklish word. For ever so long I’ve searched for an example of something that’s absolutely foolproof and hit upon this classic children’s toy. Boy, was I wrong.

Nothing is foolproof – nothing

“Give him a beach ball and that dang fool will figure out a way to go and choke hisself wid it.”

Mayhap just to prove and reiterate the point that nothing is foolproof – absolutely nothing.

So, the next time you see some kids playing with one of these vinyl beach balls snatch it away from them and demand to know who’s supervising them; and secondly, if they are being supervised, is that supervision competent?
