This happened today and I almost had to change my BVDs. I was shooting youth football today. It was half-time and I was talking to a couple people. This rather attractive blonde is standing close by. She turned around and said, "I bet you could see Mars with that lens." The guy I was talking to, who I have never met before, btw, looks at her and w/ a totally straight face said, "Nope, but he has some great shots of Uranus," (read: your anus). She just nodded and said, "Well, that's cool," and walked away. She was obviously not the local president of the Mensa chapter. I have never laughed that hard in my life. Something almost happened that hadn't happened since I was 6. I told my wife what was said and she died laughing, too.

First let me premise this by saying that my son plays U13 soccer, and here in Central Ohio, this is the first age at which they play 11v11 on a full size (100 yd x 80 yd) soccer field. Prior to this year they have played 7v7 on a smaller (70x50 yd) field.

So, with that in mind, I'm shooting with my gripped 20D and a 70-100 with the hood. And a woman walks up to me and says (while gesturing to her husband), "Aha!! THAT's the secret. Bigger fields, means I need a bigger camera!!" "Honey, we need a new camera, so we can still get good photos of (son's name)."

Husband, Immediately looks at me and says, "Hey dude, how much was that camera?" "About $1,500", I said. "Honey, just buy his PHOTOS... they're probably better than yours anyway!"

For a brief second I felt bad for her, but then she agreed with him and said, "Yeah, I couldn't take good pictures with a $5,000 camera."

edit: It wasn't a 70-100, it was a 70-200

I think it's even funnier because I had no idea who the guy was. I was just jealous that I couldn't get that out faster than him.

Oh to have the wit to comeback with something like that!:D

It is. Unless, of course, you're a movie-star dog.

Laddie is the male.

Lady or lassie would do for female.

Laddie referring to the female of the species is just wrong:p
