Mystery Quote

Here is your mystery quote of the day:

"...do not drink from the candle basins as this is no drinking water.
Stake nothing to the ground as this really endangers your life..."

I came across this quote on another site today and it made me laugh. If you know where it's from it will probably make you smile too.

UPDATE FOR THE CURIOUS: This was a public announcement that was made every fifteen minutes (all through the night as well!) over loudspeakers by the kind people organizing World Youth Day 2005 at Marienfeld where the vigil with the Holy Father and Papal Mass took place. Each section in the field had huge basins filled with water and giant candles that were used for the vigil and they didn't want people setting up tents. We got the message. It might kill us.
