One with the lot.

I'm sorry to say I didn't take this photograph, but I would have if
been there, please click to enlarge.

Check out this awesome photo - this one deserves an award. Fireworks,
Lightning, Sunset, a Comet, and the greatest of Aussie icons, the
Beach all in one image.

In addition to the obvious features in the photo, look between the two
displays of lighting up the sky to see the third - McNaught's Comet.
(about center of photo just below the clouds.)

The photo was taken in Perth WA, just north of Hillary's Marina, which
you can see the harbour wall on the left with fireworks being launched.


A little boy about 12 years old is walking down the street dragging a
flattened frog on a string behind him.

He came up to the doorstep of "a house of ill repute" and knocked on
the door. When the Madam answered it, she saw the little boy and
asked what he wanted.

He said, "I want to have sex with one of the women inside. I have
the money to buy it, and I'm not leaving until I get it.

The Madam figured, why not, so she told him to come in Once in, she
told him to pick any of the girls he liked. He asked, "Do any of the
girls have any diseases?" Of course the Madam said "No".

The boy said, "I heard all the men talking about having to get shots
after making love with Amber, THAT'S the girl I want."

Since the little boy was so adamant and had the money to pay for it,
the Madam told him to go to the first room on the right. He headed
down the hall dragging the squashed frog behind him.

Ten minutes later he came back, still dragging the frog, paid the
Madam, and headed out the door. The Madam stopped him and
asked, "Why did you pick the only girl in the place with a disease,
instead of one of the others?"

He said, "Well, if you must know, tonight when I get home, my
parents are going out to a restaurant to eat, leaving me at home
with a baby-sitter.

After they leave, my baby-sitter will have sex with me because she
just happens to be very fond of cute little boys.

She will then get the disease that I just caught. When Mum and
Dad get back, Dad will take the baby-sitter home. On the way, he'll
give her one in the car and he'll catch the disease.

Then when Dad gets home from the baby-sitter's, he and Mum will
go to bed and have sex, and Mum will catch it. In the morning when
Dad goes to work, the Milkman will deliver the milk, have a quickie
with Mum and catch the disease…..

and HE'S the prick who ran over my FROG!"

And the moral of the story. . . never run over a young boy's frog!

The photo by the way is awesome and so is the music on your blog. Think I'll just sit awhile and listen.

I loved the photo AND I'd never heard the joke. Good One Peter.

Jack K. said...

I agree, an awesome photo. Thanks for pointing out the comet.

As for the frog story, there is a young man who is a very logical thinker. His youth may have kept him from thinking about the consequences of his having the disease. With a little luck the shot will do it for him. I wonder how he will break it to mum and dad that he needs the shot, too?

Marcus said...

WOW! What an incredible photo!
I've just printed a copy for myself!
Gotta go quickly, that music....!

Big Dave T said...

Incredible photo. Perth, WA. So that's in Washington state? Wouldn't have guessed that.

That sounds like an Aussie joke. We don't have houses of ill repute over here anymore. Frogs are getting pretty scarce too.

Carolyn said...

He sure thought that one through, lol!

Spectacular photo too! Just curious: Seems like several folks are all wearing the same outfit. Is it a group or club of some sort?

Tan Lucy Pez said...

That joke is just too good!

Great photo Peter! I suspect it's made up of a few photo's (there's some ghosting that's more than just a slow shutter). But a great photo anyway!

Ignore your Son, John and Placido rule!

Gidday Peter,
That was a bloody good photo. Heard the frog joke before but it's still funny reading again.
To think you have another artist you can tease Marcus with. I suggest you make a MP3 of this sort of music to play on the trip over to the west.
I received a e-mail with a whole bunch of photos of lightning strikes in the photos so I'm gonna use them in a post. They were nothing like your photo so I may take the liberty to also use your photo as well.
