I am innocent

A se uita ca viţelul la poartă nouă (literal translation To look like the calf at the new gate) is a Romanian expression similar to the English expression - To look queer at the sun - or the French one - Être comme une poule qui a trouvé un couteau
The patterns of popular expressiveness allow recombination and substitutions, funny and spectacular innovations, contextualized in comic scenarios, mainly with animal characters, as indicative of ignorance or incompetence. For instance: To look like turkey hen on woods, like frog on barrier, like cat on calendar etc.
