    I don't think I ever posted this diverting story on this forum, although I have elsewhere.

    F***ing Shakespeare

    So, it is 4.45am in the hometown of..... and a few yards from, the birthplace of the greatest playwright ever. "Take our picture" demanded these two exhuberants (still drunk from night before) "How shall I get them to you" I ask. "Facebook" said the one with the most punchable face. I don't facebook I told them. "Flickr then" said punchable face, "OK, what shall I call it so you can find it" I ask. "F***ing Shakespeare" said punchable face. So, here you go.............."F***ingshakespeare".

    which guy is the most punchable? I hear you ask. Well, how could you punch a guy wearing cable knit? Would be like punching Val Doonican.......your granny would hate you!

    you should be able to figure it out...
    I don't know if you have enough stories to go along with your photos, but if you could put together a book of 40-50 (or more) photos along with similarly wonderful stories, I'd buy it in a heartbeat...

    The guy with the rolled up sleeve is definitely more punchable, regardless of dress. Of course, he's also far more likely to punch back... :eek:

    LOL ... I would have said "F***ing Francis Bacon". Great story Pete and an equally good image.

    Love it, Pete! Keep 'em coming - I'm with Ray 100%, but I'll have a beer with Luke.

    How come other people always have decent puncher experiences, I took a photo the other day and someone threatened to punch me! I supposed I wanted to punch him back but I was the punchee first.

    Well, the title certainly got me to click on it! Great story, and I knew who you meant immediately, though I agree with Ray, that is clearly the one who would swing back. I'd also agree with Ray that a book of such stories would be an instant buy, lol.

    Hey All,

    Good story and image but I immediately went to 50s rockabilly and where is the rat rod?

    I'll take photos of Gary taking photos of Luke 'hiding' behind Kristen while she is punching the punchee in the bokeh part of his photo. It will be quite an abstract circumstance.

    A cable-knit cardigan is a reflection of sophistication, albeit in this case deep-seated, eminent good taste as well as an expression of sartorial elegance.

    In this instance, it may well be a reflection of a freshly broken window at the local branch of Gant...

    Stand the gent with the short sleeves in front of the other and punch him really hard in the face, his head will hit the guy behind and you cannot trhen be accused of offending the Val Doonican supporters!!

    Great shot though!
