Cell phone photography / Фотки с сотовика

I'm lost in thoughts on how to title this one. Finish is there? Finish that way, please? Теряюсь в догадках, как озаглавить эту картинку. Конец там? Кончать туда?

Thrift store "Goodwill" Комиссионка "Гудвил"

A horse with two tails and a drum instead of a butt. Do they expect kids to play with that? Лошадь с двумя хвостами и барабаном вместо попы. И с этим предлагается играть детишкам?

LG Chocolate, но он не GSM-ный. Тут когда продляешь контракт с провайдером, тебе делают большую скидку на новый телефон.

Tombstone Pizza is an old brand, actually. Not very cheerful when you think about it, but I think most Americans don't think about it. Their ads had this southwestern flavor, note the cactus.

The horse thing is probably a Christmas decoration. We had a lot of crap like that when I was a kid - somehow drums are supposed to be the basis for certain types of Christmas things. Actually in my mind they go together with Nutcrackers (the things from the Tchaikovsky ballet, not the useful things that actually crack nuts).

The "finish" was probably painted as direction and encouragement for people doing some kind of race, but it is a bit confusing without an actual finish line in sight.

As for the contact lens holders, I can only imagine it was poor translation or poor quality control in the packaging division of some Chinese factory.

Thanks for your answer!

As for pizza, when a piece of bread is firm, we say it's like a stone. Also when something is poisonous we sometimes say that it'll make you into a tomb. You understand now why "Tombstone" made me smile: it means "firm and poisonous".

I did know about the Nutcrackers, but did not about the drums. Thanks! But even with your explanation, this horse looks pretty psychedelic. :)

As for the finis arrow I would think they tried to mark both the beginning and end of a loop.

In Russia you normally have an infinite amount of little funny things like this. I have to admit, they're really rare in USA. I hope I made you smile too...
