Smile…you are on Candid Camera! ;-)

As a kid I loved to watch a show called Candid Camera hosted by Allen Funt on television.  For those of you not in the new forty or beyond, the best current examples I can provide are Punk’d and Off Their Rockers.  The premise is to capture folks’ reactions on camera when they are put in interesting situations and don’t realize they are being filmed.  The results are typically quite funny – at least for those watching the film footage on television after-the-fact.

I thought of Candid Camera this morning when I saw the below photo that has been released by the Fargo Police Department to help identify a graffiti suspect.

Whoa, dude…it sucks to be you.  You were not only caught on camera, you have the spray paint can in one hand and the lid that indicates either the color or the paint manufacturer in the other hand.  I can see the writing on the wall on this one – plead guilty young man and contain your future artwork to canvases you own.  And if you are foolish enough to try this again, well next time – at least smile. ;-)

Day one thousand three hundred and eighty-eight of the new forty – obla di obla da

I teach at NDSU...but I remain a student of life with all the enthusiasm that entails. My favorite saying is, "Sometimes you have to take the leap and build your wings on the way down." In the new forty that is what I am doing...building my wings.
