Neither wishing to remove nor change the caption, I do wish to note that the "old carrousel" owner has posted some pretty wussy rules. Each one has the sad signature of a dying, desperate, and hopelessly litigious State.

Carrousels are for fun. Only for fun. The rule should read (actually, it should be clearly understood), "Have Fun".

This image is of an animal I did work on, but which was from a different bunch. Those "gems" were added by me circa late 70's.
