It is not allowed to play with balls, so it gets the hose again.

Even better when you know the meaning of the French verb “peloter” http://www.larousse.fr/dictionnaires/francais-anglais/peloter/58755

Google Translate says that “No jugar a la pelota” means “no bowl.” So it’s not pocket pool, it’s bowling!

@Stopchicks. Once again Google gives a weird translation.

No jugar de la pelota = not play ball (lit. trans.)

The game of bowls = El juego de petanca (petanque) or El juego de bolas.

I don’t think the Spanish actually play bowls. This may have something to do with Sir Francis Drake. :#

Actually Petanque is great.

Best played whilst drinking copious quantities of Anise. (Ouzo)

We don’t know what “it” is, so maybe you should be glad it’s not allowed to play with balls.

Sorry but that’s not engrish. I’m pretty sure that’s what it says… sure it’s easy to make jokes about the meaning but the same pun would occur if the sign was in english to begin with. That’s not the result of translation, I think.. (I know jugar is to play and pelota is ball).

A happy couple get married and for weeks afterward they make wonderful love together. After each time they make love his wife snuggles up to him and lovingly plays with his balls until she falls asleep. He finally asks her after they make love and she is again playing with his balls why she does that. She answers “Oh, I just miss mine.”
