This is a real sign found at a real lake. So the person responsible for this sign claims to have known that it is completely ridiculous. The lake had bacteria problems, so to keep people from swimming in it, they put up this sign. Apparently, the guy in charge thought that people would associate the word “hydrogen” with “hydrogen bomb” and be scared enough to stay away. What I find interesting is not that someone would put up a ludicrous sign for an even more ludicrous reason; what’s surprising is that this guy didn’t think that the word “bacteria” might scare people into not swimming in the lake, given our culture’s penchant for anti-bacterial everything.
