I Can Eat Fifty Eggs

You run one time, you got yourself a set of chains. You run twice you got yourself two sets. You ain't gonna need no third set, 'cause you gonna get your mind right. And I mean RIGHT.

No, these folks aren't on a prison chain gang. Given the number of people and the gross inefficiency of what they're doing I suspect it is some sort of government sponsored make-work project. I counted somewhere between 30 and 40 people on this weed clearing gang. They came in a chartered city bus. They cut the weeds by hand, place the cut weeds on a plastic sheet, and pass it up to the guys on the truck. They dump it and return the sheet to be filled again.

This panorama was made from three normal photos stitched together.
