ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Redditor Amiziras posted this photo of several nested trucks, taken last year in West Street, Bedminster, Bristol.

Maybe he had a long way to go and didn’t want to stop for gas.
What, no skateboard on a motorcycle in the pickup? Nesting FAIL!
What, no roller skate on top of the skateboard?
It’s just missing a smart car on top painted as a cherry.
You forgot: on a planet, on a turtle.
…On a turtle, on a turtle, on a turtle, on a…..
On a box of Morton Salt…
Shouldn’t in a cavern, in a canyon go between planet and massive truck?
…. theres no planet that site on turtles.. on a disc on a turtle, on its way to mate.
Does that make them nested lorries?
Yeah, blimey, I can’t believe Cory ignored the opportunity to drop in the word ‘lorry’.
I like to think the mini cooper in the foreground is preparing to top the pyramid.
Not visible: the Tonka truck sitting on the dashboard of the pickup.
It’s actually in the glove compartment….
So there really is Royal Society for Putting Things on Top of Other Things.
I missed getting this in there by five minutes! But I was going with turtrucken.
Oooh, that’s nice too! ;-)
I was going to go for matrushka.
Lately it occurs to me what a long, strange trip it’s been.
Keep on turducken!
Add a few tons of potatoes and carrots, baste and season to taste. Pop it in a (large) kiln for 3.5 hours or until tender. A viola. Bon appetit.
It’s like an automotive tudurken!
It’s hard to tell by the picture, but I think it looks like there is a motorcycle or an ATV in the bed of that pickup truck… You can barely see what looks like handlebars and a seat sticking out the top.
Sometimes, I think the point of the comment system timestamps is so I can see exactly how much faster other people are at beating me to jokes.
There was a great opening sequence to one League of Gentlemen episode where a big truck pulled up, let down the ramp and a small delivery truck rolled out. The delivery truck disgorged a fork lift carrying a crate. The crate opened, and a toy truck rolled out carrying a box of russian dolls…
Finally in real life that great Simpsons sight gag: the “truck trcuk truck” – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfOVJAQebas (german, but better image)
It looks a bit safer than the fractal cranes.
The reversed air sled on the second-largest truck is going to create some fantastic drag!
I guess I have to say what everyone is thinking …
Can you drive it all from the pickup?
I saw something similar last weekend: a flatbed (which was carrying a truck) towing a flatbed (which was also carrying a truck)
i especially enjoying the professionalism of the sign on the back
it’s one of those photo challenges where someone posts an idea for a photo and people make it happen. One is a truck on a truck on a truck. Guess they took it a little further on this one. Another is outside a window escaping lover with red boxers hangs while husband looks out targeting him with a gun, and the wife also looking out in horror.
That’s why it’s happening, because it’s a challenge someone accepted, nothing more.
This is where I live! Fame at last.
Repo men, hard at work.
How about a bike on a ute on a truck and all of them doing burnouts!
Kiwi style: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smj6BceU0u0
And in the center of it all, there’s a nano car!
I really need a tumblr of this kind of picture, pls.
