There was a loud bang in the sky. I looked up to gaze at a fiery ball hurling towards me from the azure sky. As the flames lessened I quicklly grabed my trusty Pentax Me Super and while stumbling over (place name of latest young trendy female star here) sunning herself in the hot Venice Beach sun I managed to push the shutter button. I fell into a sun tan lotioned, Frisbee, beach pail heap.

    Easily, at the last minute I placed my thumb in my mouth and blew out my cheeks. The balloon effect gently brought me down to a crowd of well wishers. That day, I dined as a king!

    Allen Taylor said (28 Feb 2008):

    Thank you Lina. However, I can't take credit for it. I copied it off the back package wrapper of some twinkies from c. 1973 I found in my parents house last week. You know, that stuff lasts forever, mmmm.

    Robey, you merely have to believe. You do believe don't you Robey? Don't let us die.

    You should have heard the guy in this picture crying when he landed. Especially when I made him do it again. Baby.
