Zen and the Art of Speedskating

Caption This

Filed under: from home — andrew @ 5:25 pm

Some images just beg for words to be added to them, to explain what “is really is going on”:

here are a few pictures that I have taken this month, the first having to do with speedskating, the others are just plain weird, left me speechless, and I will leave suggestive captions up to your collected good minds:

Picture #1

Picture #2

Picture #3 (you can click on this one for a closer view of this extremely weird scene)

and here is a bonus, an image my brother took, and this scared him to death. I am not sure that this needs a caption, maybe just a reaction. I wish I had a recording of his scream.

Picture #4

  6. hahahaha!

    I posted these without any ideas myself, but now I have a few ideas

    #1 -Need more coffee before putting up all these pads…

    #2 -Alas poor Roadrunner, I knew him well, but you are what you eat!!!

    #3 I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each. I do not think that they will sing to me. Because now I have evidence they like singing to Giant Candadian Geese!

    (apologies to T.S. Eliot on that last one)

    #4 A sure-fire way to test your fast-twitch muscle fibre reaction time.

  12. 1) Now i’m not just living speedskating, i’m sleeping it as well!

    2) Who cut off the bottom halve of this sticker! You know, the part with the punchline!

    3) Sorry, before we can continue our relay, we first have to find the relay-stick. You’ve all seen it, it’s a small green one…

    4) Hey! You feeling lucky?

  13. Pic #1 - As the two skaters exited the turn and crashed into the board pads, the pads began to peel away from the boards in an accordion style and they all came to rest harmlessly at the other end of the rink. Unable to believe they suffered no broken bones and/or lacerations, the skaters layed morionless in silent rejoice. Or not!
