What’s the first thing that comes to your mind upon seeing this picture?

Vadodara

I was immediately reminded of Dr. Alban’s “Roll down the rubber man…” song. Now could someone translate the text-content for me?

Vishu, here comes the clarification.

When I said “I should have come back when you woke me up that day,” I actually meant to say “I should have come back when you knocked on the door, came into the room, and then woke me up that day.”

I see major deviations from topic on this page.. so I’ll stick to the translation (mind well this comes from a Gujju)

Its the usual: “avoid-extra-marital-affairs-and-cover-up-or-you’ll-suffer- from-unwanted pregnancy-disease-HIV/AIDS” (and if nothing else gets you, guilt from having read this sign and still not paying heed sure will)

I guess Vishu got it in fewer words (hey I’m gujju I like to talk! Yak Yak Yak!! :D)

Wow! Thanks for the translation.

Note to self: Need to ask Vishu to refrain from using local dialect in his comments.
