When pigs fly...


When pigs fly, as these surely plan to do, are they circumnavigating the globe?

I was not sure of the interpretation but found this window amusing.

I don't think they're flying. I think their job is to hold down the books (which might float away otherwise).

Oui?

Sweet por bigs. They seem to have the whole world's weight on his shoulders (the snout). I think that they can not fly because of it.

Lovely pigs. I agree with Rob-bear that must be bookstand pigs and so they do . In this case standing on books. Great find.

Too too funny! Love the angle and wonder at the intention (although there probably was nothing more intended except to attract attention --- and it has --- world wide attention! As always, great eye, Genie!

Il est dit que les porcs ont une très grande intelligences... eux-ci sont peut-être des littéraires...
Gros bisous

I certainly agree with amusing.

Harriet said...

I think martinealison is on to something. The French always love to have a double entendre.

A travel shop? Looking for a country where they don't eat pork?

:<)

TheChieftess said...

Heh, heh!!! This can explain soooo much!!!

MadAboutParis said...

And I spy Genie in the corner...covering up her pretty face with that "honker" camera!!!

Alexa said...

I'm thinking Bibi is right. :~} That looks like the Bibliotheque National reflected in the window—were you with Virginia and Peter?

Virginia said...

Lardon on the wing? HA

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Alexa, Holly and I were in an apartment just a block away and were walking to Metro Bourse when we saw this window. You are absolutely right about the Bibliotheque National across the street.

I do love discovering scenes such as this and wondering the intention of the window designer.

I do wonder if the expression "when pigs fly" translates to French.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Bises,
Genie

This pair are too cute.

Jack said...

Love it! If I were there, I would have been elbowing you for the better position to shoot the picture.

Joe said...

A great find Genie. It would make me stop too.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

There's no way you could have walked past this window without taking a picture Genie, it's just too much fun!

Sara Louise said...

These are too cute! I would love to have these little winged pigs at my house :-)

Kate said...

Perhaps they're trying to locate Miss Piggy!

Nathalie said...

Did you know that the French saying for "when pigs fly" is "quand les poules auront des dents" (when hen have teeth) ?

Merisi said...

Wonder if those pigs have a frequent flyer pass! ;-)
