Dabbble - "Glad we've got the Congressional support for our Arctic oil prospecting. Mighty chilly though."

Scott Creighton - "The blind leading the blind"?

Lyndsay Powell - "Dang it guys I still can't see a thing, are these binoculars really for night 'cos its pitch black out there....."

Rob Hawken - “Gee these night vision goggles sure do work, it's as black as the inside
of one of pappy’s oil rigs.”

Bruce Hill -" That's Bushit! I can't see a damn thing!"

Bruce Hill - "That's funny, I thought these were regular field glasses, not night vision ones!"

Meanwhile the question on whether the photo is authentic or altered remains moot according to urban legends authority Snopes.com.
