Top parenting tip: if you’re a terrible parent and allow your child to use their potty as a mouth, you can get away with blaming it on the local playground…

Norwich Evening News, 19 March 2010 (story):

Norwich youngsters pick up bad language from graffiti

Calls have been made for council officials to clean up a city park – because youngsters are picking up bad language from graffiti sprayed on play equipment.

Mile Cross Gardens in Peterson Road, Norwich, has been hit by vandals with yellow paint sprayed on the slides and scorch marks on the equipment. […]

Now, parents have raised concerns about the mess and say they want it to be cleaned up so their children have somewhere nice to play.

Wayne Bartle, 25, who lives near the park and has two children, Harvey, five, and two-year-old Kaden, said his eldest son has picked up offensive words from the graffiti.

He said: “I’m surprised no one has done anything about it. If it looks like that then no-one wants to take their kids there and see all that. It all needs painting, it’s disgusting.”

Stuart Allen, head of Mile Cross Primary School, said: “It is a shame that graffiti and vandalism of communal resources continues to rear its ugly head.”

NETHER REGIONS FACT: Nobody in Norwich ever swore prior to this graffiti.

A literal case of playground insults, it seems.
