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.

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.

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.

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.
