    Yeah, I should try to find some old cars and photoshop them in or something. That would be fun.

    That's a good idea, BigF... maybe some homeless people, too; and cowboys, there ought to be cowboys.

    Ummm ... why?

    You lads on that side of the Atlantic might understand irony in about 800 years...

  5. BigFrank 111 months ago | reply

    Irony? I dont understand how cowboys in this picture would be ironic.

  6. Pig Sty Avenue 111 months ago | reply

    OK, BigF, I withdraw my last comment, which on re-reading it sounds rather arrogant. Any attempt at humour which has to be explained has failed.

    Now I'm sad. I just wanted to know why cowboys in this picture would be funny or ironic.

    Was it a Blazing Saddles reference?

  8. Pig Sty Avenue 111 months ago | reply

    The 'whoopin and a hollerin' was.

    Your wide streets just remind me of cowboys. And I thought you were being ironic about RUKnight's talk of cars/1950s. And I went a bit too far with my talk of cowboys.

    It's interesting, though, BigF. I wonder if recent DMU squabbles have been caused by misunderstanding of one anothers' senses of humour.

    Don't be sad, matey. Life's too short. Vive la difference, and all that.

    PigSty, No not at all! I didnt take any offense to your statement -- I just didn't get what you were trying to say and wanted to understand. I couldnt see the connection between the pic, homeless people and cowboys is all.

    If I took offense I probably would have deleted your notes and kept silent.

    Your statement reminded me of the final scene in blazing saddles with the cowboys riding into the movie theatre.... so I was wondering if thats what you were referring to.

    As I remember it, the bad guy in Blazing Saddles asked his henchman what he should do about the people in the town, and he replied that he and the boys should ride into town, "a whoopin' and a hollerin' ". One of my favourite lines from a movie.

    Of course, I suspect that there NEVER have been many cowboys in Rochester, NY.

  12. BigFrank 111 months ago | reply

    No. I doubt that highly!

    I know March when I see it.
    This is one of the best photos I've seen in a long time, and pulled me out of a flickr funk where I was looking through photo after photo and saying "crap. crap. that's crap. that sucks. oooh, your dog, how cute. crap"
    Excellent work, my friend, keep it up.
