“Caution, Lumpy Cow Crossing”
On the Road, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.
Foreign (and often domestic) roadsigns are endless sources of entertainment. Here we have a strange animal crossing sign. I have three theories as to what it could mean. #1: In trying to convey a simple message, “Caution, Cattle Crossing,” an unskilled artist pieced together images of several different cows of various sizes as seen from different angles in order to achieve one horrifying image meant to represent all local cattle breeds. #2: There really are wonky oblong cows in Brazil that have a tendency to undulate freakishly across roads. #3: Due to the unnaturally long torso, the sign might read “Multiple drunk rednecks sharing a cow costume trying to cross the road. Proceed with Caution.” Doesn’t it look like one of those two-person animal costumes, when the tail and the head have had enough of one another and simultaneously decide to mutiny? That’s what I see anyway.
