If he falls he could skin an elbow or even break a wrist.

Not nearly as amazing as a wolverine with a yooper on its butt.

I always chuckle at that pic, no matter how many times I see it. :)

This is from a Volkswagen ad campaign. Undoubtedly either safely staged or photoshopped, just like the rest of the pics.

I know how to hot link photos too. But this might be in violation of the agreement between The Atlantic Monthly and Free Republic.

However, let’s have the Admin Moderator rule on this. If he say’s it’s OK, then fine.

It’s not hot-linked.

Have a nice day.

I like the electrician standing in an aquarium but the steam roller operator with the feather boa is good too.

That’s OK ES. I can count on one hand the times I’ve hotlinked on FR ... it’s very unusual for my server to be down.

It’s a great image and I’m quite impressed with how clean it looks in that meat locker. Alas, The Sopranos missed out on an opportunity for a scene. ;D

As RepublitarianRoger2 said in his post #11, it's probably staged or photoshopped.

Pretty cool ad campaign, though. I like the images; they certainly caught my attention.

Talk about a workers’ comp injury claim just waiting to happen. I wonder who the dumb company is that allows this guy to do such an unsafe thing. Then again, maybe he owns the butcher shop. Sure hope his life insurance is paid up.

Check out the photographer's website; scroll to left of images ... also check out "commissions" ...cool stuff. I can see why he is an award winner.

Gotta wonder what the heck the inspiration was for the unicorn bag lady.
