SHEESH!

However, (and you're the pro, Scott, so I'll defer to you) could that be "shopped"? Don't see a shadow for the ladder.

That's nothing compared to... well ok, it at least ranks right up there with that stupid stuff I've seen in the DR. Talk about a dangerous, lawless, free for all. Imagine that same scene but with a motorcycle and a steel pole across someone's shoulders as the ladder. Now imagine the steel pole loaded to the hilt with clothes on hangers. Now try to imagine that making a pass on a busy highway between cars.

Whew.

Closest thing I've seen to such idiocy was someone transporting a brand new storm door home over the I-10 Industrial Canal Bridge in N.O. years ago. Strapped (but not very well) to the top of a car. Coming down on the eastbound side, it flew off.

You know how, in such cases, people describe it as a slow-motion thing? That's what it was... Luckily, everyone in its path was able to dodge it, but could've been a major FUBAR!

I always enjoy watching the rednecks trying to keep a sheet of plywood, panaling, or a matress from flying off the roof of thier SUV by holding it down with thier hand. AND trying to steer with the other.
Good luck pal.

Yes, but which hand do they use when it is time for a swallow of beer while doing it?

Careful now...I resemble that remark!

At least this one is only coming out one door.
