I think you know what they're talking about


Clint saw this at the Des Moines Airport. I wonder how little they're talking here, is this their pet name for annoying passengers? Particular parts of those passengers' anatomy?

I just hope they are not referring to "little people" (previously known as midgets and dwarves)

That was my original thought; it was only on the second reading that children came to mind, which is what I'm sure they meant. I wonder how many people were offended by this...

Sounds like Scarface to me.

"Say hello to my 'little passenger.'"

Parasites?

actually i live in that area, and i haven't seen that sign before...a bit disturbing. They do have a play area on the first floor for children, and im wondering if that is what the sign is referring to.

Meh, even if it's unclear or confusing it's still a proper use of quotation marks, given that "little passengers" is being used as a euphemism for children.

good thing this isn't the blog of improper quotation marks, then, eh?

Someone at the Des Moines airport relly likes quatation marks, it seems. I happened to take a look at their website after reading this post, where I learned you can fly to "17" destinations non-stop from Des Moines. See for yourself:
