Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

My girl friend Anna-Mei, an expat from London, recently shared this image on Instagram.  It’s a sign that was posted at a “bottle-o” or bottle shop as they call them here.  The sign says the following:

“The wearing of colours’ is not permitted in this venue.  Any person wearing any form of clothing, jewellery or other accessory associated with a Gang will be refused entry or removed from the premises.”

Can you even imagine someone posting up a sign like this in California?? Yeah right!  Oh Australia, you’ve got a mighty big government…

  1. In regards to the term bottle-o did you know we call it an offy as in an off-license! Sid cracked up when he heard me saying it. I suppose it does seem a bit odd calling an alcohol shop an offy. What is the correct term….my mind is boggled!
