Got to be guy on the far left. He's furthest away from the guy who is pissing (far right).

WV: reopensh - what they do to windows when it gets too hot in Holland.

the guy on the far left has got the food (and is holding it over the fat guy's head) so he's got control over the fat guy, AND he's got fishing pole-esque weapon gripped tightly in his hand. he's definitely in charge.

everyone else just looks like they're in line for whatever he's feeding the fat guy with.

Teach a man to fish? I disagree that the far right guy is pissing - he also has a pole, just not as big as the guy on the left. I almost went with the fat guy, but he's in such a submissive pose, at the mercy of the most left guy, I can't do it.

Most left guy with the big pole is most def in charge.

I love these guys. Jimmy Herring used to play with the Allman Brothers.

gonna have to bow out of this one.

btw, i think second from left is pretending to be the caught fish.

Second from left is clearly the caught fish. The problem is that they're fishing a stream, not the deep sea, and wouldn't have brought anywhere near the rod and line necessary to land such a ginormous catch. One of the jokers in the back would also have to be at the ready with a net and not messing around mugging for a camera.

Which puts far left firmly in control. Rear/far right has no chance of reeling in a catfish, trout, or percussionist anywhere near the size of what his friend just brought in.

Dealer Man said...

The makers of the Bassmaster video game are in charge. They gave the fisherman on the far left the skills to land the pack of tossbacks behind him.

Word verification: "annyman" = who they will let in the band next.

oh, i could try to come up with some contrarian response based on clothing, seniority, or hairstyles. but it would be futile to vote against the guy holding the glowing excalibur fishing pole. fisher king on the left is in charge.

Second from right, grizzly beard, blue shirt. He looks on the point of leaving them all to it, such infantile pranks, it's like herding cats. But just now he is in charge.

PS Splotchy, Love you too.
