You know, I learned English from a book...
(Manuel - Faulty Towers)
...the indicator (tongue?) of a balance?
my dictionary is burning hot!

By the way Hadrian, could you teach me how to make a fishlet jumping like your magic sheep here, for the cod liver oil topic????
It would make everybody crazy!

Hi Carolyn,
We Italians use to say "Mamma mia!" -that means "My mother"- when something awful shows up or is reported to us.
Actually, in this particular case I was joking, 'cause I don't think this is an awful wild beast visiting Hadrian's neighbourhood...I would go for veggies...or other stuff.  I might be totally wrong.
By the way, how is your fish-oil-propelled kid doing?
Ciao

You probably use something like "Oh my God" in the same way.
So...is that an animal or a plant?
Let's start from big groups of..."things"

Firemoon,
To me it could be something to eat...like one of the previous pics, before the antique weight-scaler.
I think they eat peculiar foods down there!
What do you guess?

IKO, we use your term of Mamma Mia, the same way in my family, meaning "oh my goodness" or "for heavens sakes" or "aye yie yie" or "Lands  sakes alive"! "Oh my gawd" qualifies also, so for me, it means the same as your meaning! I got it, no mis interpretation.... YAAAAY! I did not misunderstand you this time YAAAAY! So Glad!! LOL
