south african ribsters beware!

AND YOU THINK YOU’RE HAVING A BAD DAY AT WORK !!

Although this looks like a picture taken from a Hollywood movie, it is in fact a real photo, taken near the South African coast during a military exercise by the British Navy.

It has been nominated by the UK Photographic Society as "THE photo of the year".

I believe the picture has been exposed as being fake.
Had me fooled though!
