Looks like one guy is working on the tail of an airplane.
looks like one guy is working on staying tethered to the lift they're on.
looks like the third guy is working at not openly snickering at the second guys' too-tight shorts.

Kate said...

I'll stick with cleaning an aircraft.

alice said...

Quelque chose à voir avec Qantas?

Anonymous said...

Looks like the tail of a Qantas airplane.

pastorrick said...

I will stick to what anonymous said.

Dsole said...

yeah I agree with chris and Deb... and it's sooo red, love it!

angela said...

Are they painting the tail of a plane? Can't think they'd be cleaning it wth brushes...
Chris and Deb..LOL.

Alex said...

Même réponse: la queue d’un avion de ligne! Sont-ils en train de le nettoyer ou de le repeindre?

Olivier said...

Comme beaucoup, je vote pour la reparation (ou nettoyage) d'un avion.

isabella said...

Screwing a logo unto the plane?
C&D are right - those are short shorts from the 70's. Are they in vogue again?

Maxime said...

Je ne sais fichtrement pas ce qu'ils font, mais ce rouge est magnifique.
Globalement, ça me rappelle le générique de "Red Dwarf", où un minuscule personnage repeint la carlingue d'un immense vaisseau spatial.

Pod said...

i won't spoil the fun for everyone
;0p

All replies welcome, serious, creative or wild. Well, if you don't mind, I reckon enough jokes have been displayed in these comments. So it's about time someone opts for the serious one.

These 3 courageous men are removing the bloody red paint some stupid joker spred over the Opera House with.
You can see that the guy on the far left is too short to do a proper job: he is messing a bit around trying hard but, well... He's not as efficient as the middle one, tall with shorts, who managed to rip the paint off nicely. The man on the right handside is definitely the leader of the team, look how he needs to differenciate himself, starting aside from scratch.

Of course, you've noticed the earphones. Well, those are vital for team spirit sake as the one on the left is an Elvis Presley fan, singing Love me Tender all day long, completely out of tune...
The fact that the song is dedicated to his mate with the shorts is known by no one but I had to spill the beans: it does explain why his work is so wild and messy. The man needs attention...

So, please be aware that you are witnessing a social-drama-on-a-work-scene. This not funny. Thanks Nathalie for pointing this out.

Bill said...

The team seems management heavy :)

Lilly said...

Ooops, i just left you a new comment on yesterday's post. Sorry.

jacqueline said...

on dirait qu'un travail de reprise de couture de tole sur la queue de l'appareil est en train de se faire.
Peut-être un contrôle des jonctions?

Mimmu said...

Outs, those vandals are trying to put some colour to walls of pale Opera house.But I could prefer green !

Have a wonderful day and send loving thoughts to your twins especially then, when you are most worried, it helps you and them - my experiences!

hpy said...

Les hommes essayent de sortir de la nacelle qui est restée bloquée en hauteur, mais ne savent pas comment faire étant donné que le paroi auquel ils pourraient s'agripper pour descendre est beaucoup trop lisse. Ils ont une peur bleue de tomber et de se faire mal. Voilà pourquoi ils se protègent les oreilles afin de ne pas s'entendre hurler en se faisant mal.

Imparfait présent said...

Ils font un piercing à un avion?

alice said...

Je connaissais l'expression "peigner la girafe", tu vas en lancer une nouvelle: "peindre le kangourou".

Ming_the_Merciless said...

Looks like Quantas aeroplane tail to me.

Spica said...

Ils repeignent la queue d'un avion (facile quand on bosse à côté des usines d'Airbus...).

julia said...

Funny, itsnt it? That animal is no bird, doesn't 'fly'

Nathalie said...

Oh Chris and Deb you get the first prize for the most hilarious answer, followed closely by bv, HPY and Imparfait Present.

Alice gets the first prize for knowledge for being the first to mention Qantas.

Isabella. good on you for spotting the screwdriver, but they were unscrewing, not screwing (hard to guess the direction of the screwdriver just from a photo, so you are excused!!!)

Pod, thanks for not spoiling the show!

Congratulations, all participants win a first class Qantas ticket to Sydney from the city of your choice. Just ring Qantas and mention this ad. Cheers!

Carol E. said...

I'm too late to join in the guessing fun, but agree with Chris & Deb about the shorts... I think the two with long pants are trying to disassociate themselves with shorty-pants and his blue socks. They want those shirts that say "I'm not with him."

Delphinium said...

Ils sont en train de chercher la petite bête. :-)))

freelancer said...

Pourquoi as tu donné la réponse en image sur la précédente photo ?
:)

Keropok Man said...

qantas is the airline i take most ;-)

Nathalie said...

Thanks again to all for your creativity and input. I was chastised in the beginning for giving the answer UNDER the question, which is not time consistent (meaning I had posted the answer before the question) so I changed. And now I got a comment from Freelancer saying 'why are you giving the answer before the question ?" - which I find very logical. HELP !!! Is there a sane solution to this ?
