Knock-off Monday-Pool sign

This is what I made for my Dad for Christmas, I just never got around to blogging about it. 
Idea for sign for pool
I think the men in my family are born w/ out that little warning bell that goes off in your brain when you are about to do something stupid.  This seems to occur more frequently, when all the females go inside to fix lunch.

I saw this on Pinterest and thought my Dad needed it out by his pool-especially when my brother Dave is in town.  
-Over Thanksgiving, all the girls went out for some girl's time and left the boys in charge. Shortly after we left, he texted me a picture of my youngest sitting on top of the slide dripping wet with purple lips. (Since it was November no one had suits and several of them were in their underwear) 
-They've also been known to "surf" down the slide and participate in the world's most dangerous slam dunk contests.  
-Last time we were over, they found 5 gallon buckets in the garage.  The tipped them upside down, trapping air inside and were using them as some sort of primitive scuba diving device.

What crazy things do the men in your families do?

To make the sign, I just painted some wood w/ exterior paint.  Then I cut out some vinyl letters w/ my Cricut and covered the entire thing w/ some polyurethane.
