Triple Ostrich Pun


This sign is complicated!

"Non fare lo stronzo" is an Italian expression that translates to "don't be a jerk" but literally means "don't make a turd". Because the word "stronzo" ("turd") is too explicit, the authors of this sign write "str... uzzo" -- the Italian word for "ostrich."

"Raccoglila!!!" means "scoop it up."

This is followed by the reminder that "the secret to being welcomed is to be polite and civilized".

So there you have it. The secret is all in scooping the pooping.

This sign, found in Lugano, Switzerland, comes from the wotten waven Italian website DogWelcome.it.

  2. Hi Y'all!

    First thing I thought upon seeing that sign was "how perfect"! Humans tend to "stick their heads in the sand" and not "pick up". What do they think we keep them around for anyway?

    Y'all come by now,

  3. We are sure glad you explained that one to us Tootsie, bcuz we were trying to figure out why the doggie was taking the big bird for a walk. The big bird was about to step in the pile of stronzo!

    Thanks for the laugh this morning.

    Hugs,
