Who remembers this one? I bet Lefty and Mel do. I know Blong and Spinderfella and Mr. Boone do.

This pic is from Paul at SeizeAdventure, who says, "On my website I have several pictures of signs from places I WILL NOT be visiting during my travels. Since I'm in a wheelchair this one particularly stood out."
I can see how it would, Paul. WTF?
My first thought is that perhaps this was taken at some wild animal sanctuary/zoo in Australia or Africa; but if so, what, they have wheelchair ramps leading directly into the crocodile pond? Just for entertainment?
It also looks like wheelchair guy is carefully snapping a photo even as his chair careens down the ramp doing about 45 mph. Is he oblivious, or just determined to get the shot? "Closer... closer... THAT's it," he's thinking, capturing the shot only milliseconds before the croc swallows him and his wheelchair in one swift gulp, but not before he tosses the camera out of the croc's mouth so that the shot isn't lost forever and he can win a posthumous Pulitzer Prize.
