Friday Pix  
No, I didn't do the Friday Pix last week. Yes, I had them, I was just lazy. No, I don't feel bad about it. Yes, there's twice as many this week to make up for it, stop hitting me, please.






8100 terra cotta soldiers discovered next to the tomb of Chinese emperor Tsin Shi



Hell, I'm impressed with the balance. I'm also feeling positively thin, now.



Anything I say here will be less funny than the picture itself.



Tell me that's not the most fun thing you've seen all week.



"Well, I had the car, then it broke down and I called my friend with the truck, and then it got a flat, so...."



Cruel tricks of identical twins, next on Oprah.



Aw, look, Dad brought home take-out!



The Salami Samurai prepares to unleash Hell.



BOOM



The stork embraced technology, and now uses FedEx. Which explains why the baby is already a year old on delivery.



The good news is that the bomb was a dud.



My buddy, John, says it looks like they hit a whale.



The new wave of the future! Take your music with you in your new Chrysler! The white gloves just complete the feeling of luxury.



In later years, he'll blame his impotence on this moment.



I like to think nothing scares me, but there are still some things I'm just not gonna do. This one's all you, buddy.



Basking shark. *GULP*



Suburban topiary



There's just a laundry list of things wrong with this image.



I've had dreams that started like this...



Spandex: it's a privilege, not a right.



Ever have that one spot you can't scratch?



Little known fact: in later years, Dorothy returned to Oz, married the Tin Man...and regretted every minute of it.



Gooba gabba, gooba gabba, one of us, one of us...



I've been there, more than once. It's not bad, as long as you don't wake up by rolling over.



Just hang your wet things on the railing to dry.



I love this picture. Just LOVE it.



This one too, but for different reasons.



Not a road I wanna drive...well, OK, maybe I do. ;)



Apparently, they don't have nuts where this guy is going.



Time to feed the snakes.



Compass? Check. Trench tool? Check. Puppy? Check.



Way to go, jackass.



This 'conservation of water' thing has gone too far.



Thank god, diet water. I've been killing myself with that stuff I get out of the faucet.



90-year-old granny takes on The Sheik of Araby. I'm not making this up.



The Mustang logo finishes this off nicely.



"Well, Bob, it looks funny, but, damn, if it ain't the most comfortable seat in the house."



Well, damn.



Well, damn.


OK, OK, you've had your fun. Was it everything you'd hoped it would be? At the very least, here's hoping it brought you a smile, enough to get you through the rest of your Friday. Seeya around!

The salami samurai has the weirdest ears EVAR.

I think we drove that road on our vacation. Not sure, but it *could* be the road up to Engineer Pass, which is supposedly the most gorgeous pass view in the world. After crawling up and down in 4x low 2nd gear, I believe it.

The pics of the twins cracked me up. Thanks for the grins; I really needed that.

I love the tattoo. Jackass needs to go back to 2nd grade.

Spelling is a system, isn't it? He's just living up to his ideals. *LOL*

God, the Spandex picture reminds me that DragonCon is just right around the corner.

ahh, well done!

Double-plus-goodness! Thanks for another great installment!

In case you didn't get details from the source of that last picture of the guy falling down the stairs, it's a staged photo by Kerry Skarbakka. He has a whole series of such shots that I think kicks ass. This stair picture is one of my favorites.

When his work first appeared on the scene in Chicago a few years ago, there were prints of this and a couple other selections placed on the stairways and landings leading up to the L platforms. It was both jarring and pretty amusing.

Heh, nifty!

No, I don't feel bad about it.

*insert me sticking out tongue* Pffffffft

Good pics as always. Been a bad week and these certainly brightened my rather gray day. Your god daughter will be 8 tomorrow. Can you believe it???

Yikes. Send her my best, of course.

The orange nightstreet picture gives me a powerful urge to play something dark and gothic. Fortunately, I just got Persona 3 so I am safe from backsliding into White Wolf RPGs.

The fightin' granny reminds me of Throw Momma From the Train.

Sadly, the site I got it from gave no credit. No clue, which is too bad, 'cause it's a very nifty bit of art.

Salami Samurai: Excellent!
Boom: HoFuSh!
Bomb: Shopped? Good one if it is. A crane accident would be funnier.
Unicyclist: Great shot. Is that this guy?
Giraffe: Makes my neck hurt.
Tin Man: THAT. IS. THE COOLEST.
Hanging girl: Oddly hot.

Another excellent production.
