Feb 5, 2010: Damifino

I don't know a damn thing about this picture.

I'll leave it to you smart people to enlighten us.



Lion, 2-ewe, bear, doesn't work.
Even if you're Jewish or Chinese, Bear, 2-ewe, lion, doesn't work either.

I looks like California to me, and I'd suppose a circus/carnival act.

But really, damifino?



lumberjim  Friday Feb 5 12:34 AM

I put the date of that picture in the late 50s, early 60s. The driver has native American attributes. The 3 boys seem to be blonde tow heads. I agree with the California assessment..... and carnie vibe. I'd raise you a surfer music sound track, and a likelihood that this has something to do with a famous person of a subsequent generation.

maybe it's Kurt Cobain in the back of this wagon?



ZenGum  Friday Feb 5 12:41 AM

Driver: man, this EPA horsepucky is really startin' to get me riled.



jano  Friday Feb 5 03:20 AM

I will go out on a limb and say it is more recent. The guy is from Mexico and say yes "Californication" is involved. The dog near the cart is a greyhound, not many of them in Texas. I put the place in California also. I would say 80's to now as a time period. There are bars to space the heads of the animals apart so they cannot eat each other.



SPUCK  Friday Feb 5 06:13 AM

This picture is just before the animals figured out they could eat the driver if they worked as a team.

Dog looks more like a Doberman with un-screwed up ears to me.



Antimatter  Friday Feb 5 06:29 AM

I call 'shopped. The animals are too equal in size, the pulling action delivered by lion and the bear doesn't really connect to the wagon, and the reigns are attached in weird places. Finally, four draft animals side by side is too wide for the wagon and probably also for the road - two by two would make more sense.

The Chariot of the Apocalypse.



monster  Friday Feb 5 07:40 AM

Well clearly that's Radar heading off on his great hotdog adventure.



Sheldonrs  Friday Feb 5 08:30 AM

I believe this is a picture taken during the great horse shortage of '56.



Spexxvet  Friday Feb 5 08:34 AM

Just a typical 18 holes in Mad Max's world.



anonymous  Friday Feb 5 09:06 AM

It ain't that big. The whole United States ain't that big. It ain't that big. It ain't big enough. There ain't room enough for you an' me, for your kind an' my kind, for rich and poor together all in one country, for thieves and honest men. For hunger and fat.
John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath



Cloud  Friday Feb 5 09:31 AM

I think that's a chubacabra in the background.



burns334  Friday Feb 5 09:59 AM

Looks like Farve to me, he even has the blue jeans

I agree with you. Look at the shadow of the awning and the awning's poles and see that the light is not directly over the passengers, but the shadows of the animals are directly below them. The lion's raised paw, in particular, is lit from above but there is no shadow of it.

Or maybe this is a re-enactment of that Flintstones episode where Fred had a broken foot so the family had to get a hybrid car!

This is what you get when you buy a car on CL



HaLFOfKeN  Friday Feb 5 12:59 PM

Anyone want to guess how many months they had to apply a cattle prod to that bear and lion so they would resist their natural urge to immediately and remorselessly attack and eat everything else in this picture with a pulse?Mmmmm... Carnie-life. Good stuff.



Diaphone Jim  Friday Feb 5 02:29 PM

From another forum where this pic was discussed came the question: When he gets to the river and only has a small boat, how does he get that menagerie across without the sheep gettin' et?



spudcon  Friday Feb 5 02:38 PM

They don't cross any rivers. They're on their way home from the zoo, and when they get there, it's dinner time, and my guess is the lion gets et first.



lumberjim  Friday Feb 5 02:48 PM

Sundae  Friday Feb 5 04:17 PM

Pulling the haggis wagon is definitely a euphemism.
I'll be using it.
As soon as I work out what it means.



squirell nutkin  Friday Feb 5 05:17 PM

When I take you out, tonight, with me,
Honey, here's the way it's goin' to be:
You will set behind a team of a lion, sheeps, and a bear
In the slickest gig you ever see!

Chicks and ducks and geese better scurry
When I take you out in the surrey,
When I take you out in the surrey with the fringe on top!
Watch that fringe and see how it flutters
When I drive them high steppin' strutters.
Nosey pokes'll peek thru' their shutters and their eyes will pop!
The wheels are yeller, the upholstery's brown,
The dashboard's genuine leather,
With isinglass curtains y' can roll right down,
In case there's a change in the weather.
Two bright sidelight's winkin' and blinkin',
Ain't no finer rig I'm a-thinkin'
You c'n keep your rig if you're thinkin' 'at I'd keer to swap
Fer that shiny, little surrey with the fringe on the top!



Gravdigr  Friday Feb 5 05:39 PM

I lost my lion-sheep-bear-pulled popcorn cart in 9/11, you insensitive bastards.


Also, if you put a lion on a treadmill, will it still eat you to death?



squirell nutkin  Friday Feb 5 08:02 PM

Only if you are playing Vegas...



monster  Friday Feb 5 09:53 PM

Does anyone have a cool "reaction to 4-animals-1-wagon" vid?



Elspode  Saturday Feb 6 01:11 AM

Sun angle is about directly overhead. The disparity in the shadows is because the awning does not cover the full length of the cart.

I think this is some religious thing. Lion...lambs...bear...



xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Feb 6 02:14 AM

Well, I welcome our wagon pulling overlords.

Two by two would be a lot faster, too, if the sheep where in front.

Welcome to the Cellar, GunSgt1863. Or should I call you Gunny?
