#8

Did they mention how much it weighed?


#9

Candian soldier- "Can u guys spot me from the sides?"
Guys- "Uhhhhh" Looks at eachother


#10

ROFL.

good one.

I know it's a joke, but I don't think it's heavy enough to require a spot.


#11

I was just thinking "I wonder how much that weighs." Probably don't look like much, but barbed wire isn't light. And that's wrapped pretty thick.


#12

I guess it depends on that bar. Is it a car axle or something? (I have literally no idea)


#13

It could be a sweet joust too...
