2005 06 28 - A Little Joke Re-Visited

I was shooting my friend Linda yesterday when the whole group stopped for a few drinks and to meet with with another photographer. It was during this time I thought it would be funny to share a little joke I played on Linda a short while ago.

We were out shopping in one of those large Mega Malls a while back when we stumbled across someone's fanny pack on the ground. She looked down at the fanny pack, then back up at me and said, "We should take this to the lost and found".

My outer voice said, "Yes, we should".
But my inner voice was screaming, "TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN - IDIOT!"

She hesitated picking it up and actually asked if we should be careful, after all it could be a bomb.
It was at exactly that moment my genius kicked in - I said, "Yeah, you're right. Maybe you should nudge it with your foot a little".
*** Yeah, that would keep us safe from a bomb - I see bomb handlers do that on The Discovery Network all the time - Duh!

Anyhow, she slowly steps up to the fanny pack and ever so gently nudges it with her toe.
At that exact moment I yell out (pretty loudly) BANG!

To this, Linda lets out a giant scream (louder than mine) and immediately turns the darkest red I have ever seen.


Luckily there was only one terrorist at work that day - The Comedian Terrorist: Paul Buceta.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot.. Here are some pics from the shoot last night.

more to come soon...
