8/18: Image backlog clearing



I have no idea.



About a month ago, a guy took off climbing the Brooklyn Bridge for no reason, and here he is.



Do not drive through large puddles of water. You may stall out and require rescuing.



This is in the Congo, and they are searching for a dead body. Apparently, searching for dead bodies is high entertainment over there.



This is a dwarf hippo baby. I want one! Except hippos are not supposed to be very polite.



Yes, another nude protester. Has it gotten so commonplace that it's a yawn for image of the day?

K9 Academy?

Tony, I think this is a picture from one of the K9 training academies in the country. What they're doing here, I think, is letting a cat walk the line, and test each dog's control over their instinct to "run down the cat and shred it". If one dog leaves the line, that dog fails and therefore doesn't graduate. I guess the prospect of not graduating compels them to succeed. =)

Of course, that's just my opinion, I could be wrong.

That's what you're supposed to think. But actually it's an army inspection for a combined feline/canine force. The cat is the general and the others are his dog soldiers.

Lightbulb What is it?

No, it's clearly an excerpt from the production of the sequel to Cats & Dogs entitled "The Cats Strike Back!"

This scene (according to a spy at AICN) is an evil cat inspecting the line of his robot dog army.

I still don't know

You'd think it would be a K9 academy situation, but then the real question is not how they got the dogs to stay, but how they got the cat to walk slowly past them. No self-respecting cat is going to have any part in that action.

=) Maybe they gave the cat a whole lotta catnip for the task?

This is clearly yet another nude protestor photo. This was taken during the recent G8 meeting in Genoa. The dogs are Italian police dogs. The cat is nude.

Simple!

And a compelling argument for making your domain name short.

What's the URL on the back of the protestor? Goved.com? I can't quite make it out ...

I can see it now, in one of the remaining dotcoms "lets hire an army of nude protesters with out domain branded on them to run though the city at peak hour!"

Some dotcom company used that advertising scheme at pacbell park a while back, I think. They hired a guy to run naked around the park with the name of the dotcom across his body...

Cheap advertising to reach 60,000 people....

They did a spoof of that on a television commercial, except the guy was just running around on a baseball field with a sign of the dotcom name.
