Is This Your Sausage?

Austria, 2011

Saw these signs everywhere I went in Austria. For Signs, Signs.

PS. After reading all the comments I realize the purpose of this sign is not so obvious. Andy got it right: it's a poop and scoop message. The website he links is also in German and says roughly: The famous Jack Russell Terrier can be seen again all around Vienna. A total of 18,000 of these dog signs have been distributed across Vienna's green spaces to remind people once again to pick up their dog mess or get fined Euro 36.

It's a cute ad! But it is advertising for human consumption or dogs?

Sausage dog or sausages, best not to mix the two up. One is best not fried.

I initially thought you'd photographed an actual dog holding the sign. when I enlarged it was obvious! I'm wondering about the intended message, who it's directed to. this is a laugh. thanks Francisca.

Luna Miranda said...

a cool ad...it could something naughty here (or illegal!). LOL

Andy said...

Okay Francisca, without a explanation and a language barrier I had to Google it. It means stoop and scoop? Otherwise clean up your dog's mess or else face a fine of 36 Euro. http://www.arabella.at/wien/tagebuch/sind-dir-36-wurst/
