No Cattle Allowed

Ok, perhaps this might sound like another “paranoid’ warning about the nefarious alien bovine plots for the Earth. But people in Guyana must clearly be in the know more than I knew!

For here is a sign that has tickled my interest and raised goosebumps. “No Cattle Allowed” at the entrance to a residential area just outside Georgetown. Now, you can read this anyway you wish, but I choose to believe that these people know that cows can READ, hence the sign (because cows generally roam the area unfettered by human accompaniment, so who do they expect to read the prohibition?) AND they are afraid. Very afraid. They need to warn the cattle away!

Don’t believe me about the underlying menace behind this sign? Then what is the bird of prey doing lurking about? Sure, it’s just a chicken hawk, hardly the largest or freakiest looking bird in Guyana, but it’s the perfect setup for the horrors to come, to have a bird of prey looming overhead…

Be warned.

  4. LOL. There used to be this “no goats allowed” sign on this formerly empty lot here in Anguilla and we used to be tickled pink that there were actually never any goats on that lot!

  5. Last time I heard that cows can read …cowinese I think they call it … lots of low bellowing. But they can’t read that sign; it has to be translated first HAHAHA! 😀

  7. Nicole So livestock signs are clearly effective :-)

    Felix I think you underestimate the bovine intelligence 😉

    Ewe Chauncey will just have to avoid certain hoity-toity areas. I know, limiting the places to wear his frou-frou boa, but c’est la vie sometimes!
