man in stocks with his hands bound


He sure does seem calm about the whole thing, doesn't he? I wonder what he was locked up for. By the look on his face, this is not an unfamiliar situation for the guy.

He is awfully calm. Like he is about to take a stroll.

Might as well. Not like he can take a nap in that thing.

That would be the worst part- no lying down.
Hey! I like the new look. Indeed.

Thanks! I'm not sure how I feel about it yet.

He couldn't even really lean properly.
