    You could have knocked me over with a feather when I was cruising thru our local most excellent bookstore, Kepler's, and saw 'that' pic lurking out at me from the cover of the unlikely literary magazine, "The Bagel Digest"

    Well, I thought twice about bringing this up, but then felt like it was good closure to bring the artist behind this weird disturbing work to light. He is Roger Ballen, http://www.rogerballen.com. And this pic is part of his "
    Platteland: Rural South Africa" photo collection.

    Probably more than you wanted to know.

    BTW, you can find the Bagel Digest at www.bageldigest.com. I thumbed thru the issue, but ended up leaving it on the shelf.

    Eeep...

    Interesting... Say, does "Roger Ballen" collect Telecasters and sell stuff on eBay?

    :lol:

    Oh... my...

    I took a look at the pic again from a different computer (one that doesn't downsize jpegs to fit in the browser window) and got to see the full size image...

    and....

    Is it just me? I only *just* noticed the drool on these guys and wet patches on their shirts.

    WAAAY too gross first thing in morning :eek: :eek:

    If you can't tell, best that it stay that way.

    :eek:
