Must...resist...puns...


This bunny ("Miffy" or "Nijntje") is a familiar sight here in the Netherlands, as the city of Utrecht is home to its creator, Dick Bruna.
I snapped this shot through a store window here in Wassenaar, mainly because it reminded me of a funny post from Luxembourg DP.
Obviously a coat rack, I have to say that at the time I took the photo, I didn't notice the --umm-- strategic placement of the dowels. I'm not sure the maker really thought this through ... or maybe he did...

Very amusing. I think that it is quite funny, intentional or not.

Yeh 'NIJNTJE"
This little bear is such a great design, so little and so big ' all in one figure. Did you know that "NIJNTJE" is almost without words? So no one needs translation, it makes its own story, Now "NIJNTJE" is allover the world know, I red that its also imported to Japan childrens books. Very funny right?

I am not sure that "bruna" made this design but he sold rights to use his "NIJNTJE" for childrens use 'whatever' is good for children..
