Pigs on wheels

Here is a series of amusing photos, forwarded to me by a coworker.

The photos were taken in Vietnam, where small motorcycles are a standard means of transportation. But how can you transport _____________ on a motorcycle?

• hula hoops

• pigs

• chickens

• very large fish

• a mirror

• pipes

• leafy greens

eggs!

I think it would be great to live in a society where cars are a rarity. It isn’t a good option for us in Canada, given our six-month-long winters. But it must reduce pollution and congestion significantly.

And it must be better for pedestrians … until the guy with the pipes swerves to miss the guy with the eggs and goes hurtling onto the sidewalk!

    Loved these pictures!

    The craziest motorcade I’ve seen is a family of 5, with the oldest child holding an umbrella over the whole crew. Yes, one motorcycle.

    Too bad you don’t have a photo of that! It’s hard to imagine how it’s even possible – sounds like a circus trick!
