Headline: At traditional start of summer, thousands flock to shore, ignoring warnings

It’s Summer! Let’s head down the shore!*

All caution I’ll blithely ignore!

I’m done being grim,

All in for a swim!

What’s just a few hundred deaths more?

  • Philadelphia area people don’t “go to the beach.” We “head down the shore.”
