Default What the....?!?!?!?!

The "What the....?!?!?!?!" thread LOL
Here you'll be able to post a photograph(s) to make the viewer say "What the....?!?!?!?!"

This thread was inspired by one of Photomao's post. Thanks Mike for the inspiration.

Default For Photomao :)

Ok, everyone else can look as well. While talking to Photomao on the phone and driving around E. St. Louis (NOT A GREAT PLACE TO BE ) I came across this bus and said what the ......

The next shot, well. I just thought it was neat with all the signs and everthing, then I had a couple of guys come out of the place and I FREAKED. I told Mike to "MAKE SURE YOU STAY ON THE PHONE".
BTW, I didnt notice while photographing it the building, but you can see ONE guy looking out the door looking at me

I noticed these three bar stools in the local tavern in Chesaw, WA. It was the only place in town to get a drink and a bite to eat. I snapped a picture of them while we ate our lunch. The stools look like recycled old tractor seats.

We found this pig in the window of an abandoned storefront in Molson, WA. The dead flies just add to the shivers that pig gave me--it was pretty creepy!
