The Playful Apostrophe

A friend of SPOGG snapped this picture on the playground of a gated community in a lovely seaside town. At first, we were very concerned about the effect of the sign's punctuation on children.

Then, we realized two things:
- At least the sign doesn't say "SLOW CHILDREN AT PLAY"
- Clearly, the apostrophe is engaged in a game of hide-and-seek. It belongs after KIDS, but has hidden itself between the T and S of RESIDENTS, instead. What fun! Don't tell, but next time, we're going to look for it in GUESTS. Hoo, boy!
