Yo, Adrian, The Best Meat

I saw this ceramic tile sign at a shop in Mijas Pueblo last week. Although I'm no fan of Sylvester Stallone, I could immediately hear Rocky yelling "Yo, Adrian!!!" Obviously, that's not what they intended.


A few minutes later, as San Geraldo got up from a bench and crossed the street to meet us, I noticed a sign in the background behind him.

THINK WHAT YOU WILL...

Four seconds is all I could bear...

      I agree with you about Stallone. Talk about a meathead.

  2. It must be cold for San Geraldo to be so bundled up.

      Didn't like Rocky. Don't like Stallone. Springlike day today. I even left my jacket home when I went to lunch (although the walk home was a bit chillier than I expected).

      That's a shop that sells the parts (frames and tiles) to make your own signs of any size.

  8. I am proud to say I have never seen a single Sylvester Stallone movie, and nor do I ever intend seeing one! I might have known he is a Dump supporter...

      I saw part of "Rocky" (the first) and couldn't get through it. I only know "Yo, Adrian" from all the jokes since then.
