Bent Metal. That's the theme. Could be anything from a car wreck to a crushed beer can to a piece of jewelry to an L bracket to a.....well you get the idea. Turn your imagination loose. As always, offbeat interpretations are welcome and most of all have fun.

Here we are a few hours later. Time to take a break. Put down the notepad, the pen...take off the glasses and......right in front of me...bent metal!

Note: I posted this picture before I saw that JustEd had already posted up the first one with eyeglasses. Ed- you know what they say about great minds. In any event, just wanted to acknowledge that Ed actually beat me to it with this one. Back to the drawing boards. LOL

Michael, a CS theme I really like! Somehow it reminds me a bit about Dennis...

I'll see if I can find a sledgehammer Sir:biggrin:!

Years ago men like this one used to bend metal for us.

A good pair of driving glasses can help prevent bent metal:
