Me being an idiot. Just felt like doing something stupid... it was fun.

After challenge comments:
This was by far my most enjoyable entry. I laughed all week at the comments. It's a self portait under a sprinkler. I just thought it would be funny to try and be sexy with a wife beater, cheap cowboy hat, fake teeth, and a lot of body hair.Pretty scary, but pretty damn funny too!

Dude, I totally love this shot and understand your desire to take it. I have teeth too; you can see them in my profile pic. Great entry, should have done much better.

I'm pretty sure my teef are the Bukk. My dad has a set with the $ gold cap... very funny stuff.

Here is another entry with my teef...
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/264/thumb/114673.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/264/thumb/114673.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

FYI...

You can get teeth similar to mine here:
Dr. Bukk
Mine are actually a soft version that they don't make anymore. They look quite real and they are fitted for your teeth.

I was actually afraid to comment on this shot during the challenge because I thought it might have been a serious entry from someone. You look slow, dim-witted and even though you are soaking wet, about to burst into flames.

It's perfect!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 05:07:53 PM
What do you really look like??
I'm sorry I voted this so low, but I really wasn't up for flaming queens with bad teeth in the rain soaking wet. I took it literal I think!

Now that I know the deal its pure genius!

Thanks for the comments.. I know this is my photo, but I still can't look at it without laughing. I think I'm going to do more of this. I just laughed all week instead of stressing about a .134 score change!

I have some good ideas for the Diary challenge.. YEEHAW!
08/22/2005 02:25:58 PM
I just got through reading the comments and I'm laughing even harder than the first time I saw it. I literally am crying at what people said. For the rest of the day, I'll have his s-eaten grin and hairy arms etched in my brain.

I can't stop laughing. :> O ha ha ha ha ha ha

Thanks again for making my day.

You got a purty mouth, boy. ;) Am I the only one hearing "Dueling Banjos?"

Great shot; should have scored higher!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 12:32:10 PM
This shot was severely underscored IMHO. I thought (and still think) it's great!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 11:17:49 AM
i cant believe this scored so low! oh well you did a great job, keep up the amusing good work!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 10:03:59 AM
The comments are very funny. I stayed away from saying anything because the image made me cringe. Totally grossed me out. Way too Village People as stated many times but I am starting to warm up to the humor now that I know it was a joke.

It's a Classic.

08/18/2005 03:37:26 PM
wow, what a capture. the boyish face and grin combined with the big hairy arm makes for a strong visual impact.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/18/2005 11:16:05 AM
Added points for:
- excellent use of available models
- making the model wet
- figuring out how to pose

Demoted points for:
- the lack of an interesting environment (like a farm, farmland or perhaps a forest)
- not having a female model when showing wet tshirts (kidding here)

08/16/2005 07:30:28 PM
I really like your subject - someone who can work in the rain and smile. It made me smile.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/16/2005 01:24:03 PM
Technically, this photo is ok and the subject really look like he his enjoying himself. But I don't find this photo very esthetic. 5

08/15/2005 03:52:08 PM
nice to see he's gittin' er dun despite the rain. i'm not gonna lie, this creeps me out a little. a little tighter crop could increase the impact. don't be scared to crop off a part of his butt and even some of his hat.

the pose is interesting to say the least. compositionally, the curving line of the fencing is a distraction for me. the chest, arm and stomach hair add a touch of realism. Nice human touch. 7 for the smile, and this would have gone higher without as cluttered a background.

Are the Village People getting back together?? Sorry, this is hilarious. Love the guy's expression! I gotta hand it to ya - this is one unique shot.
