Danger: There’s an Obvious Danger Here!
by Chris MacDonald
This one is fun. It points out something terribly obvious — namely that there’s a very large hole in the street, maybe 10 feet wide and 20 feet long and 12 feet deep, and then adds the strikingly obvious fact that this giant hole constitutes a danger to pedestrians.
Oh, and note not one but two layers of fence between pedestrians and the dangerous, deep hole.
Interestingly, the normative conclusion — “stay away” — is left implicit.
