Daily Calisthenics for U. S. Army Air Forces Bombardiers

They look like they're engaged in some sort of modern day cult ritual. "All Hail Mars and Chuck Taylor." In their favor, I should add that those are reportedly hundred pound bombs.

That is a very confusing picture. But then again, I am just very confused today.
The picture is sort of gay-porn-like and yet, so not.

I do not believe that those bombs weigh 100 lbs. I just don't.

downtown guy said...

That's what they said. 100 pounds! Would the army lie to you?

May said...

Yes. Yes they would. They aren't even straining! Some of those guys are holding one side up with one finger! 100 pounds, my ass.

downtown guy said...

But it's a very strong finger. An Army Of One (Finger)!
