The act of throwing a heavy metal ball has long been an obsession for many. "Shot put," as it is known, requires skill, strength, and a heavy ball. It also requires arms. Beyond that I have absolutely nothing to say about shot put, and have probably already written more about it than anyway else in history. This week the Something Awful Forum Goons decided to take a picture of a shot put player in action, and make it ten times more exciting, substituting the player and the ball for more adventurous things. I think it's an improvement, at the very least.

Here is the original image, unblemished by ne'er-do-wells.
