    I am writing about safety signs and this one is a mystery to me.  Can you please help me out?

    I can understand "no dogs", take a shower, the bikini and the ice cream cone shape have my wondering what they are telling me.

    Can you assist?

      I think they are saying No ice cream if your wearing a swim suit.  Or No ice cream for the dog, and No clothes in the shower. jk

    No dogs, no food, no diapers and there is a shower. I think. smile

      Yeah, the shower sign would mean "take a shower before entering the pool." That's always been a requirement of every pool I've ever been in.

        i agree, the shower sign means - take a shower first before entering the pool

      The bikini-bottom part could also mean no swimming in your underwear. I've actually seen it done, though not in the U.S. But you never know...LOL

    Aha! 

    No food, no diapers - that makes sense.

    Oh, but to single out ice cream - the world's favorite.

    Thank you very much!

    I think it means skinny-dipping only. So quit eating ice cream, be sure to take a shower, and no dogs allowed.

    I think it means no thongs! Only large modest bathing suits. 

    But I prefer Pandoras answer!

      It looks like balloons me You cannot swim with clothes, animals, or balloons, and you must be showered.

        No wait no Speedo? No banana hammock?

    I think it's "No Speedo's Based on the Repulsive Factor" and "No Eating Ice Cream Cones Based on the Crumb-in-the-Filter Factor" (They don't seem to mind if anyone eats ice cream in a dish.  Maybe I'm wrong.)   smile

    Oops - now I see that it's no balloons - not no ice creams cones.  Hmm...  "No balloons based on the fact that they may pop, scare someone, cause any number of heart attacks in any number of swimmers, and result in a massive multitude of lawsuits against the owners of the pool - not to mention the lifeguard on duty (if, in fact, there is a qualified lifeguard on duty at all)....     Yes.  That's what I think the sign means.    smile
