FORT WORTH, TX — In the dog days of summer, all you want to do is find a place where you can just cool off, right?  Well, there’s a new rule in Fort Worth that has some kiddos breaking the law.

Yep, we’re talking terrible toddlers.

Hey Kid! No frolicking in the fountain. You heard me! Tell your mom you’re in time out.

I mean really, how do you punish a kid playing in water?

But no one, no matter how cute, is allowed to splish-splash in the Sundance Fountain. It’s only allowed between the hours of 2pm and 6pm.

So, how do you explain that to a kid when the fountain is tempting toddlers to indulge?

Meanwhile, in our nation’s capital, another toddler terrorist attack. This time it was at the White house. That’s right one toddler managed to escape from his parental units, squeeze through a barred gate and was found on a lawn by the secret service.

Oh, and the punishment for this tiny threat?

Well in a statement – a secret service spokesman said “We were going to wait until he learned to talk to question him. But in lieu of that he got a timeout and was sent on with his parents.”

Ha! Look out folks, the twos really are terrible and they’re out breaking all kinds of rules!
