Shopping in a foreign country is interesting.  Some things are just the same as in the US, although the instructions may be in another language.  Some are very different and sometimes you see words you recognize but that mean something completely unlike the words in English.  Here are two oddball photos directly from France, one that fits in each of these categories.

Meat in the small grocery in Melisey is very fresh and of high quality.  Here’s a chicken presented in way unlike what you’ll see in most markets in the US.

Sometimes the eye sees what appears familiar, yet isn’t, as the brand name on this label.

    I guess it’s pretty fresh if the feet are still on it. Yikes!

    Very, very interesting!!!!! Labels can be soooo misleading or just plain strange.

  4. I know that chickens do have feet, but don’t wish to be reminded of the fact when I’m about cook one. 😯 Hope no-one thinks that this fabric softener is edible. 🙂

    Wonderful shot for this week’s odd ball. I always enjoy seeing what you come up with. 🙂

    Definitely an oddball, Janet. At least it’s not hanging by the feet displayed on the window 🙂 I thought it was a turkey.

    • Your comment reminds me of the things I see sometimes hanging in the windows of Chinese restaurants. I’m never sure if I’m better off knowing or not knowing what they are. 🙂

  7. It is all so new and so amazing to me.

  8. Great photos. I’m not sure about the feet. 😀

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
