    You never know who’s walked on it

  3. timmy | 4:05 am |

    Must be shag then.

  4. timmy | 4:09 am |

    Billy, eat your carpet, there are starving children in India!

  5. timmy | 4:09 am |

    But it looks like neopolitan.

  6. Huu Yuu | 4:13 am |

    I like cut a rug before eating it.

  7. jjhitt | 4:14 am |

    Isn’t that part of the the Postmodern Vegan Paleo Diet?

  8. Huu Yuu | 4:14 am |

    By the Order of the Friends of the Floor Covers

  9. jjhitt | 4:14 am |

    Unfair to lesbians.

  10. Big Fat Cat | 4:24 am |

    If I am correct, this photo was taken at an Indian airport. Eating flying carpets, which provides the only means of transportation, is prohibited and will lead to prosecution by the airport authority.

  11. DrLex | 4:35 am |

    I can see the problem. That carpet looks like a cross-section of a giant layer cake.

  12. sirpaulfan | 4:45 am |

    And don’t bring any carpets that eat anything in here, either.

  13. Droll not Troll | 4:51 am |

    It gives you pile(s) anyway.

  14. Droll not Troll | 4:54 am |

    The snack bars around there must be terrible!

  15. jjhitt | 5:38 am |

    Cleaning the carpet doesn’t look like it’s permitted either.

  16. PeeBee | 5:40 am |

    Not a problem. I’m on an all-Linoleum diet anyway.

    ETA: What is this sign supposed to say?

  17. Droll not Troll | 5:41 am |

    Even if I bring my own?

  18. Droll not Troll | 6:01 am |

    They’re not licensed for a floor show.

  19. Seventy2rd o clock | 6:22 am |

    It’s a frying carpet!

  20. Seventy2rd o clock | 6:27 am |

    It flies it when it eats it!

  21. DrLex | 7:06 am |

    The sign was supposed to say “(sitting and) eating on the carpet prohibited”.

  22. J-Luke | 7:38 am |

    The restaurant is serving carpeccio; I guess that’s out of the question as well…

  23. coffeebot | 8:41 am |

    because Lesbians

  24. The Dude | 8:51 am |

    Unless it matches the curtains.

  25. Tom41 | 9:48 am |

    But eating the wallpaper is perfectly fine!

  26. Garst | 11:13 am |

    I’ll just rip up the carpet and lick the floor instead.

  27. Big Fat Cat | 12:47 pm |

    Flight attendants: Security to Section A20. Someone mowing their carpets there.

  28. Filboid | 1:00 pm |

    It’s a sign for the parking area, it should read “Eating car pet strictly prohibited”

    You’re not supposed to bring pets in your car and eat them – especially cows.

  29. A Non-Y Mouse | 3:58 pm |

    But it’s my favorite thing to munch!

  30. algernon | 4:00 pm |

    I like the taste of a shag pile

  31. Eggrish | 4:06 pm |

    Pink shirt guy to the left of the sign has been totally emasculated by this Order. Note the long gaze.

  32. Long Tom | 7:00 pm |

    That ought to scare the moths away!

  33. Ann | 10:28 pm |

    They would not need this sign if they kept those damned goats out.

  34. Seventy2rd o clock | 3:47 am |

    New Order Disorder?

  35. Marum | 10:08 am |

    So much for the GLBT robby.

  36. Marum | 10:09 am |

    BUT!!!
    I’M A CARPET BEETLE!

  37. Marum | 11:13 am |

    Probably only occurs after 8 or so.

  38. Marum | 11:16 am |

    Between 11 and 12 they also bite holes in the concrete.

  39. Peter | 1:39 pm |

    No problem at all.
    I shall eat the carp instead ^_^

  40. iLock | 3:35 pm |

    Razors are also strictly prohibited in this airport.

  41. iLock | 3:36 pm |

    Eating carpet publicly in the airport lounge
    is strictly for the uninhibited.

  42. Marum | 9:28 am |

    It actually says. Carpet mateing is prohibited. They actually meant carpet matting. Buy hey! To get over 1 billion people you can’t be fussy.

  43. Paul | 3:04 am |

    Actually, the Hindi text says “Eating [while sitting] on the carpet is strioctly prohibited”. Carpet is not mentioned.

    Perhaps the English text is for the arriving English-speaking clothes moths.

  44. TS | 5:58 am |

    Muffed this rule already.

  45. Derek | 9:11 am |

    Welcome to India, unless your a lesbian.
