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.

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

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.

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.

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.
