Make sure you don't take your kids by the many cow pastures when the bulls are out, or Alice you might have some splainin to do. Give me a break I've seen worse on Dancing With The Stars and Super Bowl Half time shows. Those pictures are not offensive. JMO

If the pictures (signs) are what was shown on post #17 then I believe whoever decorated Fish Hawk used poor judgment . I would not expect a sign like that anywhere in The Villages it does reflect what The villages represents

Not Alice! It's Lucy who does the 'splainin' !

I changed my mind and deleted what I wrote here before. I don't like the posters, either. TV is a class act, and those aren't in good taste, even if it's a pool hall. I think our pool halls are classy ones.

Let's take em' down and paint the room bland. What will be next to come down or be removed. How about the bull statues in Brownwood. I am sure they are offensive to someone. We are living in an age of where if one person is offended we must bow to their wishes...

Heaven help us....

Did you see the part about IF MY TEN YEAR OLD CHILD OR GRANDCHILD WOULD ASK?

Warren and Rubicon, if this is the worst things kids ever see, in this day and age, with all the stuff on the internet and on TV and all around them, then they will be unscathed.

I don't like vulgar people and I can't stand prudes either. We have to teach our children to live in THIS world.

The pictures are fine. They probably have them in Miami, Plantation, and other far off places people say they're from.

I'm under the impression this is an adult community. If the pictures offend you don't play billiards there and certainly don't take your children to this room. Use commonsense.

What an amazing amount of "hooey" raised by one person who appears to be very easily offended.
If we remove those posters, then we would have to remove the "(ate)" 8 ball, both the 6 & 9 balls, maybe "balls" in general, cue sticks with "butts" and "shafts," poolroom terminology like "breaking the balls" and "stroking" correctly," not even allowing mention of "screwing the shaft into the butt" of a 2-piece pool cue, and turn it into a Ping-Pong room (oops, that use "paddles" to hit the "balls."
I'm 71 years old and I still get amazed at many peoples' view of the world around them.

If these signs prevent anyone from taking their grandchildren into the billiards room, I say they have met my requirements for both form and function.
