Ahh yes, the Italian language can be so beautiful.
a lot of jokes don’t translate from Italian to English or visa versa either.
I’m not sure of this translation. It seems to be more colorful than “Say no to drugs”
Hmmmm, “Don’t touch this sh*t!” Am I right? Is that the message they are trying to relay? I have to agree with NYC. It’s definitely a more colorful way to put it!
*I deleted my last comment due to a spelling mistake.*
Ah, yes, J…so bellissima! Too bad THESE words I know. ha ha
J Doe – You would be surprised at how un-funny I am in Italian. Or, maybe you wouldn’t be!
NYC – I agree. It is more “funny” if nothing else.
G – I saw you deleted that…I wondered why. Yes, isn’t it a funny way to teach “our kids” not to touch drugs! lol
I see this poster plastered all over Rome and I laugh every time. But I guess the whole “this is your brain, this is your brain on drugs”…..sssssspop hisss frying egg thing is pretty strange too!
Yeah, I saw this one in Rome too. It’s the fringe extreme political parties like Forza Nuova and Fiamma Tricolore that never beat around the bush in their posters, they’re always so out there!
WOW! i think thats loud and clear! lol….and straight to the point….
You got to just love the way the Italians express themselves.
No beating about the bush with that campaign. 🙂
I forgot to come back and comment on this the other day. Too funny 🙂
Avery and Shelley – I am glad to see this artful poster is all over Italy and they didn’t “target” us Calabrese!! I DID think of the sizzling egg when I saw this!
Calab, Nadine, Delina, and Sogna – I thought this poster was VERY funny. I had to double check with Pep that I wasn’t missing some Italian joke or something…Seems I wasn’t!
