    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.

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

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

    It gives you pile(s) anyway.

    The snack bars around there must be terrible!

  15. jjhitt | 5:38 am |  Vote: Add rating 18  Subtract rating 0  

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

  16. PeeBee | 5:40 am |  Vote: Add rating 15  Subtract rating 0  

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

    ETA: What is this sign supposed to say?

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

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

    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.

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

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

    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 |  Vote: Add rating 3  Subtract rating 0  

    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.
