IMPORTANT (no hats) (thank you)

by Chris MacDonald

IMG_4057This sign, posted at the lineup for a small roller-coaster, is beautiful and slightly ridiculous. It is ridiculous in just how emphatic it is about removing hats. (For comparison, signs at other rides warning patrons to keep their hands and feet inside the cart, or not to ride if they have a heart condition, are much much smaller.)

It is also beautiful in its rhythm. Almost like a very short haiku.

It was taken at the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto.
