Worth going full screen and with the sound on to get the full benefit. Happy Friday.

    Excellent! Very funny – but who was driving the tractor as our man ran laughing into the sunset???

  • That made me very, very happy.. funniest thing I’ve seen in ages :0)

  • Suspicious as are the above but very funny anyway!

    From my own experience of balers I would agree with Richard – seems remarkable that he survived. Also, the rather convenient size of the bale, and the way all his limbs and head popped out of it without it collapsing, make me suspect the whole thing slightly, but hey – or possibly hay – it was funny.

    Oh, and FWIW obviously it isn’t hay but straw, too.

  • Bloody hell – the baler I grew up using had massive great cutters to trim the bale, he’d have lost both arms at least!

    Argh – thought I was going to witness some hideous agricultural accident! Very good 😀
