Friday Caption Contest: Elderplayground edition

By raincoaster

From the land that gave us Monty Python and, inadvertently, The United States of America, comes this delightful concept: playgrounds for old people!

Seniors’ playground

From the Guardian:

Manchester, UK: John and Patricia Baxter, aged 73 and 57 respectively, try out the new play equipment at the Older People’s Play Area in Dam Head Park, Blackley. The new play area, which is the first of its kind in the UK, is designed to give gentle excercise for the elderley and has the slogan “You’re never too old to play”

True enough, and now it’s time for us to play: Captions in the Comments section, please. Winner announced Monday, and I promise not to pick myself this time.

  1. Jennie Says:

    Maude and Albert decided to experiment with spicing up their marriage after 35 years of the same old thing. However, they didn’t quite understand what “swingers” actually did and while it was fun, they never did see what all the fuss was about…

  2. Margaret Says:

    I’ll be teeter…you be totter…

  3. gemdiva Says:

    Although delighted with their new sex toy, the Baxters couldn’t quite figure out how to get it through the front door. They decided they would keep it in the front yard, but remain clothed while using it, so as not to offend the neighbors.

  4. gemdiva Says:

    After years of quibbling, Patricia finally had to admit, she was heavier than John.

  5. Phyllis Says:

    This headline appears on the front page of your local paper (you know, the free one they leave in your mailbox), and it’s right above the weekly story about zoning variances:

    “Local Man Breaks Coccyx in Playground Mishap”

  6. Liz Says:

    Jennie is good!

    Wheee…wheee. Oh! My hip!

  7. Bellamama Says:

    Proof that seventy is the new five.

  8. raincoaster Says:

    You know, on THIS playground the creepy hangers-on would be gold-digging twentysomethings. Is it haunted by the ghost of Anna Nicole Smith?

  9. gemdiva Says:

    1, Hannah & Jim were determined to make it into the Guiness Book of World Records. Their latest attempt made them a shoe-in in the “Most Time Spent on a Teeter Totter by Two Senior Citizens in Winter Coats Without Depends” category.

    2. Ella kept yelling at Fred to let her off, but his hearing aid battery had gone dead and he was totally in the zone.
