I think this is one thing that I like about Saudi – the little men on bins wear thobes.
Well, actually I have two interpretations to the logo above and haven’t decided which is a more valid explanation for this fine specimen of a motif.
The optimistic interpretation:
The little stick man in the picture is indeed wearing a thobe and the message is addressed to Saudis:
Keep your city tidy, put your rubbish in the bin.
The pessimistic interpretation:
Based upon the observation that some Saudis believe that “work” is something that you import and pay someone else to do. The little stick man in the picture is actually wearing a lungi and the message, whilst still addressed to Saudis, is:
Keep your city tidy, tell your worker to put your rubbish in the bin.
Which one is closer to the truth? Well…
