I was driving down the highway when I happened to glance to the side and see a couple of farmers on their modern tractors talking over the fence. I thought this had some potential so I recomposed the scene using a couple of antique tractors that I saw at the Hamilton Antique Tractor Pull. For those of you who arent into Antique Tractors the Rivalry between the fans of John Deere (Green Tractor) and Farmall (Red Tractor) is sometimes quite intense. So if these two guys with their extreme differences of opinion can be friends, why can't those Muslims and Jews get along?
