10: Misused quotations aside, what does this statement really mean? | Please Play With Fire | http://www.flickr.com/photos/e_notagain/938032798/ | Incorrect

11: "Dont" is a term used in the card game Bridge, meaning "opening bid". No apostrophes are in sight, so who would ever know that the message is intended to read do not play with fire? It really reads, "Opening bid, play with fire". Frankly, anyone interested in playing with fire is not interested in bidding and would interpret this simply as an invitation to proceed and, yes, play with fire.
