Friday Funnies

It is now hot in the old European eastern countries. Metal is melded with heat, and it seems heat unmelds metal. Do hold on tight for a moment


Remind you of anything? Was Jorn Utzon inspired by seeing the dishes his wife had he had just washed?


We Fit did not.


This is a set up prank by a Belgian firefighter. There used to be devices that allowed a train or tram to very slowly go over the top of fire hoses.

  1. Sue that company for false advertising. We definitely do not fit.
    Thanks for the smiles.

    1. EC, what amazes me about these accidents is that it is not just a scrape across the roof. The miss by quite a height at times.

  2. Dammit! My dishes don't inspire me to design an opera house. I'm more inspired to design the Wreck of the Hesperus when I look my rack full of dishes!! ;)

    1. Ingrid, but look at the Opera House now. I hope the result is not thought to be awful.

  7. I remember one summer in England when the temperature got to 29/30C and the tar on the roads got a bit sticky! Was mind boggling for us coming from Africa and used to the heat ☺ I can't see how truck drivers don't see ahead that they might not make it under some bridges, it seems to happen so often! Do you remember when you and R were in Perth it happened twice in Melbourne 😀😀

    1. Grace, you have a good memory and I had forgotten about the trucks hitting the bridge, two in one day I think. England is not pleasant when it is hot.

  8. There is an overhead train tressle traffic routes under here where I live. At least two or three times a year, despite extreme warnings including one that routes trucks a different way, a truck tries to go under it and hits the train bridge. Why, I wonder, does it happen, over and over again, at this one spot.

    1. Strayer, I know there are a lot more trucks on the roads but it seemed to be a rare thing in the past.
