Scary One Brooklyn Bridge Park Children

When hurrying past this pay phone ad on Montague Street in Brooklyn Heights, we unconsciously worry about these rambunctious little children. If they were ours, we'd probably start yelling at them to "Get off the side of the tub -- How many times have we told you!" etc etc. Especially the little girl in the back, who could crack her skull if she slipped on the wet rim she's standing on.

But after passing by a dozen times we finally realized there's something more fundamentally wrong with this picture. When you look closer, the children appear to be too gleeful . . . so gleeful, they're almost scary. The kind of scary that bends forks and makes unpleasant people go away.

Look at their faces. They laugh and cackle, and no one has the nerve to tell them to get off of that tub. Because they can't ever really hurt themselves, can they?
