A Blue Ribbon Day

18 giant bottles of Pabst beer, 4 empty on each side. They look a little drunk, but they don't look like they're having a great time - more like all that beer is a chore to get through. What's the story here? Brothers? Where is the photog's share of the beer?

They look pretty fucked up to me. Strange picture.

Looking at it more closely, I think they may be guarding that door.

Great find. This one is weird, and I like weird.

Yeah, this one gets odder every time I look at it.
