Years ago we saw that sign up in a restaurant in Laconia, New Hampshire.
DON'T FEED THE BRIDS. The brids.
Was it a typo?
Surely someone must have noticed and told the owner of the place that his sign was all wrong.
Or do brids live in Laconia? Are brids native to Laconia? I never saw them anywhere else.
And why shouldn't we feed said brids? Do they get fat? By feeding the brids do they hang around too long and scare off the tourists?
Now when you go up to Laconia as a teenager and see a sign telling you NOT to do something....well, guess what?
You want to do what it says not to.
SO TO SUM UP:
Me and Hoag fed the brids.
