Slip-Sliding Away: A Gallery of 5th Avenue Ice Trips

  • Straight chilling:There are few things as publicly humiliating as falling on your face in the middle of the street. There are also few things as funny as looking at pictures of such graceless individuals. Circle of life, Hakuna Matata: One man’s burden is another’s LOL of the day.

    Luckily (for the rest of us), one intrepid AFP photographer named Timothy Clary posted up on a 5th Avenue yesterday and took as many photos as possible of people slipping down the street. The results are unsurprisingly amazing.

  • Slip-sliding away.

  • This guy is going to get a ticket.

  • The plethora of bags cushioned her fall.

  • ...against the forces of gravity....

  • ...and general ridiculousness.

  • (You know where this is going...)

  • You can slide home on your back like a penguin.

  • ...and the vague unease of knowing that someone is taking a photo of you right now.

  • Obviously the best thing to do is pretend that you meant to fall on your ass, as you know have time to relax and enjoy the view in the middle of 5th Avenue.
