Buke anyone?

Sighted in an upmarket Bombay suburb-

From the context, I presume 'buke' means bouquet.

Okay, I NEVER would have gotten that one. Ever. No way. *shakes head* Now you need to find a good definition for it and tell me before Thursday. *snort* ;-)

Like the name, but wonder about the car decoration part. Interesting.

I guess so but that's an odd word.

That's so funny. Rhymes with puke. I wonder what was crossed out...

Thanks for the picture......then explaining what "Buke" meant.

Enjoy your week-end.

My Dad and I have a little game of taking pictures of signs that make one go, "Huh?" or whose misspelling results in a completely different meaning. I'm adding this to our collection :-)

Car decorations puzzles me though! With flowers?

Buke is too close to puke. They should have gone in a different direction or maybe a different spelling.

Nice photo!

"Buke" -- that's a new one to me!

I’m glad you translated! But now that I know, it does seem like a logical way to spell bouquet.

Wondering about flowers and cars decoration also. Glad you explained "Buke" :)

Well that went right over my head until you said bouquet. I had no idea what they were talking about.

I will ask the spouse to give me a buke on my birthday:)

Too Funny. Car decoration? LOL!

If you think about it, bouquet does phonetically spell out as buke!

And car decorations? That can be next Saturday's photograph.
