I wouldn't mind being a member of that "socety". Great capture!

James said...

ha. That looks like something that I might do.

The "I's" have it! But hey, I think it's great. I'm actually embarrassed how people all over the world speak English and I know so little of other languages...

Part of the problem is that the U.S. is so big we tend to think we don't need anyone else, and so isolated we can live our whole lives without hearing another language (well, I'm exaggerating, but you know what I mean)...

If I could do it again, I would travel everywhere and learn every language I could.

And if I was in Livorno, I'd stop by the Pet Socety and tell them I love their sign!

For a translator and editor, those mistakes hurt! Where's my red pen?!!

It looks like Engrish?

Hahaha! I saw a sign the other day here in Greece which read Acient Diolkos - but my camera battery had run out so I couldn't snap it.

Oops! A simple error - could happen to anyone. I like the bright green color & the paw print. Are there Livornese who object to English language signs? I would imagine that some would rather keep to Italian.
