Balancin’ Fool

From Life magazine for March 10 1952, we get eight photos of one Robert Dotzauer, who liked to...well, balance things.

Why is he balancing crap while in bed?

BikerPuppy - You ask that of a guy balancing a push mower on his face? I think most of his decisions are based on "why not?".

I'm not so worried why he's in bed but why's he looking up the dress of a doll while in bed? He some kind'a purrvurt!?!

I noticed Paul said "he liked to balance things" I take that to mean Robert's no longer with us and has taken his balancing act to the great beyond?

And yea, that whole doll in bed thing is creepy..

The poor little girl in the chair doesn't look too happy. Who would let their kid do that? That must be his daughter, huh?

Whoops. Fishmen commenters are going to be confused. I meant it for this one. Great! Now, could we get this guy to work on the budget?

expat, isn't a purrvurt someone who molests a cat? :cheese:
do you think the guy is over compensating for something he's not good at in bed?! 😕

You know who may be a good candidate to take over this guy's position. Bruce Campbell. I mean most of what he is balancing is on his chin (except the doll, but that's been driven into the ground already) and Bruce has just the chin to do it. 😉

I could never sit that still to balance anything on my face. Joe, that's impressive.
