I’m keeping Vail chairlift picture in wallet as reminder

Vail, CO, Colorado

The photo printed Saturday in the Vail Daily of a person hanging upside down from the chairlift at Blue Sky without pants was without a doubt the funniest picture I’ve ever seen in a newspaper.

Yes, I’m sure that it was an unpleasant moment for the unfortunate person who put his or herself into this awkward position.

But since its impossible to tell who it was or even their gender, in a sense they are Everyman.

Be careful or this could happen to you!

I’m not sure what problem Vail Resorts has with it. They could use it in their marketing to replace that tired one of the bear in the gondola.

I’ve cut the photo out of the paper, and put it in my wallet. In the future, whenever I’m having a bad day, I’ll take it out to look at and remind myself that things could be way worse.

The only problem I have with the picture was that it was printed so small. Could you please reprint it larger, or make it available on your Web site?
