    Ouch! I do wonder about the intelligence of those folks standing between the green crane truck and the edge. Were those creamy pints held in their hands?

    I've seen those before, the last picture is faked. If you look at the 5th picture in the sequence, where the first lorry has landed in the water, take note of the position of the lorry, the surrounding vehicles and the position of the people standing around.

    In the last picture, you'll see its that exact same photo, with the green lorry 'photoshopped' on to it. Also note the severe blurring by the wheels of the green lorry where blending in to the surroundings has been attempted. In particular, take notice of a green van behind the 2 men in white t-shirts, which disappears after the 5th picture in the sequence, and miraculously re-appears the split second the green lorry is supposed to have slipped on its footing, likewise for a small white dinghy tied to the red boat, and a grey van at the back of the picture, which somehow turns in to a red escort when the lorry tips over! And who stole the orange traffic cone from in front of the lorry? Damn theives!!!

    Ok, Ok.. I change my story... the reason the picture looks fake is because the little Irish lepricorns pushed the green lorry over the edge using magic, causing a distinct blurryness to the image, and creating the illusion of travelling back in time so no one remembers the lepricorns ever being there!

    I'll bet Taffy tells children there's no Great Pumpkin either, and then laughs.
