    Yeah, it's an impressive trick, but not that hard to figure out really. 10 piggies for the first person to explain it in a comment...! ;-)

    no piggies for me too. No idea how they can hold like that. But I found the idea excellent for (i) overcrowded population (ii) short persons who wish to see the military parade.

    at first i thought, what the heck! then i though oh wait, are they maintaining this position with the use of hand/arm strength and that stick?

    @jean_louis_pujol: Ha, ha - excellent suggestions! ;-) @blueskyandhardrock: Nice try, but that would take inhuman strength - especially considering they sit like that for hours, with no visible sign of effort! Nope, guys, those 10 (imaginary) little piggies are still up for grabs... ;-)

    Seriously... I suggest that the one at the bottom is a real human being whereas the one on the top is only an helium inflated balloon.... Am I right or Am I completely ridiculous?

    Eureka! I know how they can hold : both guys share the same strong stick (probably made in Indonesian oak that is the strongest oak stick in the world as everybody knows). this was easy...

    An other suggestion: The upper guy is seated in a chair that is link to a base by the stick. the two guys are seated and the upper chair is hidden into the dress and so the stick then goes into the lower guy's sleeve ... is that ok.

    @jean_louis_pujol: BINGO! We have a WINNER...!!! You are absolutely correct this time (except I suspect it's a metal bar rather than a 'stick' - even Indonesian oak is probably not strong enough for that :-)
    As promised, you have earned yourself 10 beautiful piggies, and here they are: http://www.wontonpow(…)10_pigs.jpg
    Congratulations, and thanks for playing ;-)

    Yessssssssssssssssssss! 10 days that I thought about this snapshot... I did not go to work... I've even forgotten to eat trying to find out the trick! Thank you for the piggies, my friend. I am really glad and I'm gonna frame them.... but.. what did I see!.. please send me one more because they are only 9... (except if you consider the sow as a piggy, that is not correct). I wish to share the piggies with @noelie who, to be honest, helped me a little.. I'm more happy than if I had ran faster than Usein Bolt.

    @jean_louis_pujol: You are indeed more observant than Copernicus himself: there are only 9 piggies in the photo. However, you failed to read the Terms & Conditions, which clearly stipulate that 1 piggy would be deducted to cover shipping and administrative costs. That is how the modern world operates, my friend, so you'd better get used to it. Of course, if you feel that your legal rights have been infringed, you may seek an appeal with the European Court of Justice, which functions on the basic principles of the Napoleonic Code that so many of your countrymen died to institute. As far as sharing your piggies with @noelie is concerned, you are perfectly entitled to do what you like with your prize, although I would personally give her 5 piggies on the basis of her beautiful profile pic alone! P.S. I suspect that you might be a fucking maniac, but all of my friends are too, so welcome to the club!!! ;-)

    Yes. I am deeply honoured to be one of your countless maniac friends. Now, if you look closer to @noelie you'll find that (1) she is beautiful (2) she looks intelligent. Exactly like me! Finally a great lomographer as you are will detect that her avatar has been probably taken with a Fed Zorki type 1 on an efke film. Consequently, it become evident that jean_louis_pujol had taken this pic! Insofar as jean_louis_pujol did not receive a slap in return, then the conclusion is that... Noelie is jean_louis's daugther!! Unfortunately, possibility to cooperate again and make lomowalks with my beloved daugther will become complicated in the near future as she decided to follow her studies in Strasbourg, i.e. as far as possible from his impossible and tiring father! that's life. Really a pleasure to exchange with typical english humour!
