Default Just Being Silly

My husband was reading the covenants on our new Village house:
“Birds, fish,dogs,and cats shall be permitted.... Each owner shall be responsible to keep such pet on a leash.”

So you all have leashes for your goldfish, parakeets, and cats?

I have searched Amazon and can not find any fish leashes - anyone have any idea where to get them?

Are you planning to take your goldfish out for a drag?

Now that is something that needs to be re-written.

The intent is clear, the wording is humorous.

Uhhhhhh . . . There are a number of items which could stand to be re-written.

Some of them are older than Methuselah!

It's not as silly as the noise restriction that requires the noise level to be "moderate" after 10 PM.

Is moderate 5 or 6 on the volume control?

I don't think the peepers living in the preserve behind our house got the message to keep the noise moderate after 10 PM. Good thing, love listening to them while we hang out in the pool with a frozen margarita : )
