Guys like that are why when feminists tell me they can do anything a man can do I just laugh at them. Men built this world they feel comfortable enough to talk sh*t in.

Photo buffs know the truth behind the classic photo: It was staged. The men in the picture were real ironworkers. They did build the structure that is now the 22nd tallest building in New York City and home to NBC studios. But rather than capture them in the midst of their lunch break, the photographer posed them on the beam for multiple takes — images that were intended as advertising for the new building. Some historians believe there was a sturdy level of the structure, then called the RCA building, just below the frame.

“You see the picture once, you never forget it," Rockefeller Center archivist Christine Roussel told Time magazine. But “the funniest part about the photographs," she said, "were they were done for publicity.”

Other photos taken that day show the workers playing football, holding up American flags or pretending to sleep on the steel beam. It was the lunch photo that was published in the New York Herald Tribune that October, seven months before the building would open
