Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

Photo taken in Oslo, Norway. I’m pretty sure I understand the meaning, but don’t know the literal translation.

  1. It’s obvious what it means: Beware giant dog-attacking rice.

    Haahaa the translation was even better than I thought. Via Google Goggles – it apparently says ‘Use the Leash Bag’ – Fascinating.

    They need more such signs in Buenos Aires! Cool take TBM 🙂

  4. Northern Narratives says:

    I think the literal translation is “lead and use bag” … keep dog on leash and use doggy clean up bag 🙂

    I am going to have to find this hilariously inadvertant photo of my kids standing under a sign with a hilarious idiogram sign in Norway! Love this one, put your dog on a leash and don’t let him bruk (bark, barf?) I don’t know! 🙂

  6. Thank goodness for pictures! I’ll definitely keep my dog out of the rice field.

    That’s a cute sign! Must be a universal problem. 🙂

    I think it means ‘only cigar smoking dogs allowed here’… 🙂

    I bet Miles understood it at least…hehehe

  10. Fergiemoto says:

    LOL! I’m pretty sure I know what it means too!
    Great capture!

    @Zelmare, I love your interpretation, I am laughing really hard. TBM,thanks for the existence of sign, for some people common sense is not that common.
