Theme # 154 "Humor"

This one half of a "Tin Man" was found at the junk yard where I took the picture of the VW posted below. As you can see I cropped the lower extremities of Mr. Tin Man off in order to not violate the regulations of posting X-rated material on this blog. Need I explain any further. When I first saw this creation I could not stop laughing. The artist certainly had a sense of humor. It's mounted and chained to a trailer that can be towed by a car or whatever. It appears that he has three kegs of "Beer" hoisted above his head and he is showing off his masculinity, male proneness and strength. I would love to know where this was displayed and what for. My DW said this was x-rated and could not post it. But with my sense of humor I could not help myself and had to just show a portion of the piece of local folk art. I will find out the history of this piece of local folk art and update the post.

  1. I'm laughing w/ you on this one! The artist really created a one of a kind piece! I have to agree w/ your DW - I liked her theory! Ha! You asked if the man in the kilt was really my uncle, the answer is YES!! That was the first time I've ever seen him in a skirt though! LOL

  2. Oh my gosh, Eddie, this is hilarious. I'd like to have heard the conversation wherein you tried to persuade your wife that the Tin Man's anatomy was rated PG.... ;-)

  3. I'm glad you posted it! Gave me some grins...although I must admit, you have piqued my curiosity about what kind of metal made up the ... er ... censored area? :-D

  4. LOL! I may just need to take a ride out to Yaphank to search for this!

  5. Now that is Anti WoW if ever I saw it, terrific find a immense bravery standing up to DW (even just a little bit)

  6. Wonderful photo of a hysterical "sculpture". I'm afraid I would be interested in seeing the whole Tin Man! LOL

  7. That's a riot!! Great photograph and I'm sure it is even funnier in a full shot!!

  8. Great picture. This must have been to fun a trip. What a sculpture. I too wonder if it was ever displayed anywhere. Too funny!!

  9. too funny! Thanks for the giggles...

  10. Great technology post, thanks. I found some crestron system builder that were better than most!
