double entendre

I was just thinking about using this picture as an illustration for pijpen. But then I realised the image itself was already too equivocal to accompany a text about ambiguities in language.

Not only is there the misspelling ‘dentention’, but most of all there is this marvellous ambiguity about closing prisons, jails and detention centres as an effort to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Well … I guess the intentions were good.
