GIRO BUS

Click on image to enlarge it!
Ok, this is something I found yesterday. The traffic signal says not parking there because then buses may not be able to turn. And someone added an H to BUS, and that's the story. USA president George Bush has a bad image here and people don't like him at all.... I don't want to hurt feelings but I found it funny/interesting...

Bueno, esto es algo que encontré ayer. La señal de tráfico indica que está prohibido aparcar porque eso no dejaría girar al autobús, y alguien añadió la H a BUS y ahí está el resto de la historia. George Bush no es muy querido en España, ni tiene una buena imagen. No quiero herir sentimientos pero encontré la foto curiosa...

La imagen de Bush no es buena en muchos países, no solamente en España. Yo creo que esto tipo de demonstración es muy comum hoy en día.

He isn't liked any better here too!

Heh, I love that someone felt so strongly that they had to write "no" over and over again. Interesting find!

Not very popular in the States, either...

Ditto to what Isabella wrote...and because it would take an entire page to voice my feelings about the man, I shall refrain, but indicate I can wait until he is gone from office.

Whoops...should say "can't" wait.

Pobre hombre ser el mas conocido del planeta y al mismo tiempo el menos apreciado. Eso si es nacer estrellado.

Genial la foto.

hahaha... whose feelings might you hurt? We don't like him here, either. Yesterday I took a similar picture. Maybe I'll post it soon.

No hurt feelings, Dsole. Along with Lavenderlady, I'll keep my mouth shut for now, except to say I support the sign. :)

¡Pobre Bush! como sea cierto eso que dicen que si alguien se acuerda de ti, te pitan los oídos a Bush le deben estar no pitando, ¡atronando!

it's an interesting bit of graffiti!

You're not hurting my feelings! He's been a disaster for our country!

 
At 16/4/07 03:16, Blogger Kalyan said...

hah ha...interesting one...he is unpopular all over the world!

Hi Dsole, don't worry, as you see here, lots of people in the US don't like him either.

Dsole, you well know he's not like in Guatemala and particulary in La Antigua Guatemala; remember I posted a few entries about his visit around March 12th.

Por cierto, me encanta la unión de la fotografía de hoy con la banda sonora de Silvio, aunque creo que el disco Unicornio le hubiera sentado mejor, en especial la primera canción: Por quién merece amor.

Creo que vos y yo tenemos unos gustos musicales bastante eclecticos. Te recomiendo que escuches the Morning Becomes Ecleptic en KCRW (radio de Santa Mónica, CA).

¡Saludos!

Magnifica foto, por los colores primarios sobre el fondo negro y por la referencia a Baby Bush, los graffitis que se encuentran aqui al respecto son impublicables. Seria un excelente tema para cualquier dia primero de mes. Saludos.

In France, you can see many graffitis and caricatures with puns about "Bush" and "boucherie" (butcher's shop)...

Duro con ellos!!
Y la música muy acertada, me encanta Silvio.

Interesting graffitti. Someone expressing all our feelings.

but doesnt mean that s/he has the right to vandalised the otherwise nice sign ;)

Good point Kris :)

he, he, great find. I also found a graffiti stencil in Zurich that expresses a similar sentiment, so I'll probably post it one of these days.

So I guess we could make a theme day of it! ;)

Well it looks like you have a good bunch of anti-Bush people out there. I'll go along!

Great find!

Did you ever see a BBC comedy called the Vicar of Dibly starring Dawn French in the mid-90's? There was this character Jim that started his sentence with "No, no, no, no, no..." and then would say something. Sometimes it was "No, no, no, no, no parking on the lawn," and the like.

Count me in on the sentiment towards Bush.

Wow, how does the man stay in office?! Very few people here like him either. We're looking forward to your next elections as much as you are, USA... :)

When the Democrates took over both the Senate and the House last November, I went out to celebrate even though it was raining heavily.

Excellent post and wonderful find! Glad you caught it on your camera and blog!

It is amazing how one man can have caused so much damage in such a short time - not just in Iraq, even though Iraq is beyond devastation, but also his environmental policies, international affairs, national pride (or lack of it) and separation low morale. It baffles me even more how he gor reelected but I have to say, its not justh im but all his corrupt, lying, "I cannot recall", peeps who seem to manage a way to make scapegoats of the underlings when a corruption is exposed. Doesnt people in leadership take responsibilities for their actions anymore - its a sad statement of the "role models" we set for the younger people coming up the ranks. Giro Bush, Giro Cheney, GIro Gonzales, Giro Rumsfeld, Giro Wolfowitz and all the clowns he hired...
OK enuf ranting, just nice to see the one street sign I like =)
