Awesomest Image du Jour LVII

Wait...nobody move!  I dropped a contact lens!!


Can you imagine?  Holy cow!  (Literally...this is India.)

I also say "holy cow" because this is a street scene in Kolkata (formerly known as Calcutta), the capital of the eastern Indian state of West Bengal.  The metropolitan area has a population exceeding 15 million, which makes it, according to Wikipedia, the eighth largest urban agglomeration in the world.
