I clicked on the link and saw a picture of ballerinas dancing on the 
Millenium Bridge in London.  Either the picture in the link changes 
throughout the day, or Hakuho has really put a unique stamp on his 
ceremony.  Not to mention that he and his assistants have, in a very 
short time, acquired rather shapely physiques...

Or, should I click on picture #5?
