This was a very delicate operation. Or… something like that.

I’ve got my spine, I’ve got my orange crush
Collar me, don’t collar me…
I’ve got my spine, I’ve got my orange crush’

Ouch! Also, I’m thirsty.
Sometimes thirst can just hit you, er, sneak up like that.
It looks scary but it’s still delicious. 😀
I like oranges (although I can see how it might not look like it in the photo)!
Awesome pic! Now I’ve got REM stuck in my head… 🙂
Why, thank you! Hahah… me, too! Maybe some vitamin C will help me with that… I hope>!
love the song … and the photo I really love! I’m just wondering HOW … but no explanations needed. The wondering is good for me.
Awesome! I’m so happy to hear that, LB, thank you! I do a lot of wondering myself… only I rarely come-up with many answers!
The second “through spattered glass” really makes this unique. You crushed it!
Why, thank you! Ha! A freak accident, I assure you!
Wowza! This is amazing! Love it. I hope you didn’t do that INSIDE the house. If so, we know how you’ll be spending the rest of your day.
Why, thank you, Patti! Hahaha… wait… this isn’t how to ‘Orange Glow’ a floor? And walls? And ceilings? Uh-oh. 🙂
The most perfect quote FINALLY
*WHEW* See? Only took a few years.
YOU ARE A CREATIVE GENIUS!!! Brilliant once again! Have a fabulous week! Robyn
How ridiculously kind of you, Robyn! Thank you very, very much!!!
I hope that you have a wonderful week as well!!!
Orange juice with zest and “pulp friction”. Fantastic composition. 🙂
Hahaha… ‘Pulp Fiction’… too clever… I really like that!
Thank you very much, sir!
This is how I’m going to make orange juice from now on! Love the flying juice. Looks delicious, but I can see how this could be problematic now for making juice…hmm, on second thought. This is excellent!!
Hahaha… right? Let me tell you, Amy… me + kitchen = problematic… on SO many different levels!
Refreshing and scary at the same time! 😯
Hahaha… if I’m ever allowed access to a kitchen it’s absolutely terrifying, Nancy! It’s a small miracle I haven’t started any major fires yet! 🙂
When life gives you oranges…..
Absolutely, Loon. Take that… life!
If that’s a delicate operation, I’m glad you’re not a surgeon!
Nice image, though.
Hahaha… you and me both, Binky! I shouldn’t be allowed to operate on the board game ‘Operation’! Poor dude… pretty sure I’d wear out that awful buzzer!
The redneck way to make orange juice.
Hahaha… if you’ve got to be in the kitchen, you might as well have a little fun with it, right, J.B?!
Yes sir. That is correct.
Now that’s a new way to get the juice out of an orange!
Love the image, Sig!…It looks great!
Have a great week! 🙂
Hahaha… creative applications in juicing!
Many thanks, Deb! I hope you are having a good one, too!
I never heard the song but I always wondered how they made those great orange soft drinks.
I always wondered how they made them fast enough to keep up with how fast I drink them!
If like hands you a lemon. Make lemonade…If it hands you an orange just hit it with a hammer.
Hahaha… absolutely! Unless you’re like me and you wind-up hitting a thumb or two instead!
This is such a healthy way to just let it all out and get your juice going! A brilliant shot SiG – how many hands do you have???!!!
Hahaha… well, now that you mention it… one of them is pretty sore (I should probably work on my aim with that hammer before I start off on projects like this)! 😉
reminds me of the old knock-knock joke.
knock, knock who’s there?
banana. banana who?
knock, knock ** slightly irritated voice** who’s there?
banana. banana who?
knock, knock ** very irritated voice** who’s there?
orange. **less irritated voice** orange who?
orange you glad i didn’t say banana again?
enjoyed this image. such pun. thanks for sharing!
Hahaha… I remember that one, too, P&K! A l-o-n-g time ago when I was attempting to make a sad little webcomic I did a strip based on that very joke (great minds… right?)!
Thank you very much, P&K!
Great Work once again Bob 🙂
Thank you very, very much, Jake! You are very kind to say so, sir!
Totally in love. So striking. I’m really interested in the fact that you printed this and rephotographed it. Why? Too difficult to set everything up at once?
Aw, thanks, U.M!
Simplification is indeed one of the reasons I broke this one up like that. To tell you the truth, the biggest reason I put it together this way is probably just… that’s how I’m used to doing these. I’ve done one or two that had to be done in two steps (a lighthouse, etc.)… and I guess… it just didn’t really occur to me that I might have been able to get everything set-up in one step on this one. Yikes! *face-palm* 🙂
Poor Mr. Orange! That must hurt!!!!!
Hahaha… fortunately he seemed to shake it off pretty well.
Add vodka to get really hammered.
Hahaha… that would be a smash-hit, no doubt!
Oooooh! I love this one!
And I’m filing it away in my memory (the one in my head) along with the other bondage fruits. 🙂
Excellent! I’m thrilled to hear that! I tried a variation of this in the past, but it didn’t seem quite right. This might be a bit closer… maybe. I do like the concept, anyway… I think… maybe.
It looks great, 🙂
I sincerely appreciate that, S.E! Thank you very much!
Caught just at the moment of impact, I like it 🙂
It practically took a whole crate of oranges to get there, too!
Excellent image – and Orange crush is one of my favourite REM tracks too 🙂
I couldn’t resist (I was listening to it the whole time I was editing this, too)!
I’ve never heard that REM song. Love the way you brang the hammer down. You really know how to put fruit in it’s place. I guess that’s the last piece of Citrus that messes with you Robert.
I think it’s one of my favorites, Mr. M… I think it might have been on ‘Green’?!
Hahaha… well, you know how it is with citrus. You have to practically have to hit it over the head sometimes.
