Pictures of Funny Bridges
Here is Will and Guy's collection of funny bridge pictures and amusing articles about crossings.
Bridge to Nowhere
Those who jump off a bridge in Paris are in Seine.
Will and Guy ponder as to what happened here. Was there an earthquake? Or was it just a planning mistake?
Ole is the pastor of the local Norwegian Lutheran Church, and Pastor Sven is the minister of the Swedish Covenant Church, which is just across the road.
One day they join forces and are seen pounding a sign into the ground, which says:
DA END ISS NEAR!
As a car speeds past them, the driver leans out his window and yells, "Leave people alone, you Skandihoovian religious nuts!"
From the curve they heard screeching tires and a big splash.
"Yaa," Pastor Sven agrees, then asks, "Do ya tink maybe da sign should yust say, 'Bridge Out?'"

Where Did the Bridge go? How Did the Bus Get Stuck There?
Darragh O' Malley was driving his lorry when he saw a bridge with a sign saying 10 foot max. headroom. He slowed down wondering if he could drive under it or not.
'A shure I'll give it a go,' he thought only to find that his lorry got stuck underneath it.
Darragh sat back in his seat, poured out a cup of tea and lit a cigarette. A policeman arrived a short time later and knocked on the cab door which Darragh immediately opened.
'What do you think you are doing?' demanded the policeman in a sharp tone.
'Sure I'm having me tea break,' replied Darragh.
'And what do you work at?' enquired the policeman.
'Agh shure, I deliver bridges,' smiled Darragh.

Disappearing Bridges: Will and Guy Investigate
The bridge picture [above] showing a bus and a bridge missing got us thinking and research has indicated that bridges are stolen far more often than one might imagine.
Metal bridges can be sold for their scrap value; but Will and Guy find it amusing that these bridges disappear without anyone noticing, it is not as if they are small, some are enormous as our photos show:
Police in the western Czech Republic border town of Cheb have launched an investigation into the theft of a four-tonne railway bridge. 'We are not sure if it was taken for personal use or for its scrap value,' police spokeswoman Martina Hruskova reported. 'It is the first time we have dealt with this type of theft.'
Russian police are hunting scrap metal thieves who stole a 200-tonne metal bridge in a night-time raid. The bridge in Khabarovsk in eastern Russia vanished overnight and was part of the only road leading to a local heating plant. Now staff at the plant have to find alternative routes to work.
Staff at a heating plant were astonished when they discovered the bridge to work had been stolen. Apparently the cost of replacing the bridge will be ten times the value of the scrap metal. The bridge was made of four steel pipes half a metre in diameter and covered with steel plates. The thieves worked at night when there was no one around, which allowed them to dismantle and remove the heavy construction without anyone noticing, a spokesman for the heating plant added. That is that no one noticed until it was time to go to work in the morning and staff couldn't reach the plant.
