Hilarity Ensues As Funny Auto Mechanics Recreate Renaissance Paintings

A mere mention of “mechanic” may bring to mind a greasy guy wearing an overall uniform. Heck, you probably even have a specific person who immediately pops up in your head as your go-to mental picture of the word.

These hardworking guys make sure that our vehicles run smoothly, carrying out repairs, and necessary maintenance work. When you chance upon a friendly, jokester type, then taking your car to the mechanic shop would be more of a delight than a chore. Believe it or not, some mechanics can be the funniest.

American photographer Freddy Fabris perfectly captured the hilarious side of our awesome auto mechanics. His dream has always been to recreate Renaissance paintings via photography and when he found this auto-mechanic shop in the Midwest, he knew it was the perfect place for the photoshoot.

As he explained:

“For many years I wanted to pay homage the great Renaissance masters. Translating painting into photography was a challenge I looked forward to. I wanted to respect the look and feel of the originals, but needed to come up with a conceptual twist that would create a new layer to the original. To take them out of their original context, yet maintain their essence. By chance I came across an old Midwest car shop that triggered this series, the place screamed for something to be shot there, and slowly but steadily ideas started to fall in to place.”

A man’s public marriage proposal on a boat went terribly wrong after the woman decided to throw the ring away and leave him heartbroken.

One courageous man in Hubei never thought that his romantic proposal would horribly fail. After all, the romantic guy showed up in front of a hospital riding an SUV towing boat. Holding a bouquet of flowers, the man climbed up on the boat and shouted into a megaphone "XXX I love you! Please forgive me!”

This man is pretty confident he’ll persuade the love of his life to say yes.

Bacon is probably the most loved pork dish in the world. It has that sweet, tangy taste and chewy to crispy texture that sends any meat lover to the heavens. However, we have to admit that it is not the healthiest of food. In fact, according to WebMD, 3 strips or 26 grams of bacon contain 120 calories, 9 grams fat, 3.8 grams saturated fat, 30 mg cholesterol, 7.5 grams protein, and 435 mg sodium. We don't know how much that will impact a person but the number sure sounds... scary.

But in this report, You. Will. Rejoice.

The world's oldest woman as of July 2015 declared by the Guinness World Records eats bacon everyday! She even has a sign in her kitchen that reads: “Bacon makes everything better.”
