"Mankind" has, in some circles, taken on a sexist bent; better to refer to Man as personkind or humankind?

Oops, I think I left a too-difficult ending to follow on from. :hmz: Let me try again.

"Mankind" has, in some circles, taken on a sexist bent; best then to bend the bent straight and simply refer to all of Mankind as "people" :wink: ("Humans" could also be incorrect, which would mean coining a new word like "hu-people" or "you-people"!) :twisted:

You-people who visit the parks should at all times be considerate of others and be prepared to participate in park etiquette.

Etiquette at tables sometimes fails dismally as eructations and flatulence escape as from a firmly-blown bugle.

Bugles are definitely not to be given to small boys for Christmas or birthday presents - unless you are the grandparent :twisted:

Grandparents are often substitute parents that can feel grand with their grandchildren for as long as they choose, until they feel like running away back to the quiet backwaters of retirement.

Retirement? What's that? You may retire from work but never, ever retire from life as there is more to do and see when you are not hampered by a 9 to 5 existence

Existence is what happens when material possessions are chased in the false belief that these equal happiness.

Over and over again we visit the parks but never, ever during the school holidays - our days of being one of the crowd are long gone :D
