A simple story in pictures


Professionals at work is the title of this series of unattributed pictures. (Via memepool Nov 26, 2004.) I think they speak for themselves.

(I apologize in advance for the lowbrow advertisements on the page.)

    I don’t know if the story below is true, but IMHO it’s even more fun:

    There’s a little more information on Snopes about this incident, if you’d like more than the 1000 words from each picture:

    They "appear to be genuine photographs of an incident that reportedly took place in Ireland at Roundstone Pier, Conemmara, Galway, around September 2004."

    Unless I’m missing something here, there are meant to be a couple more pictures of the green crane not being strong enough to lift the first crane out, and they both fall in the water.

    Paul H, the picture you refer to is a poor fake.

    The green crane didn’t fall into the water.
