Caution: Bimbo on Board
Here's a "Bimbo on Board" sticker in the rear window of a car. Oodles of Italian cars have these, because there are millions of bimbos in Italy.
In Italian, bimbo (pronounced "BEEM-bo) is short for bambino, meaning child, in this case.
Nonetheless, I still refuse to put this sticker on our car, even though we have three bimbi. I'd hate for an English-speaking tourist to see me driving by and assume that I'm the bimbo on board...
