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

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

I think that's a chubacabra in the background.

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

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!

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.

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.

Pulling the haggis wagon is definitely a euphemism.

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

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.

Well, I welcome our wagon pulling overlords.
