Not live, and don't care to.

I did see a streaker once.

I yelled "Don't look Ethyl" . . . .

But it was too late

She'd done been mooned.

Use to see them years ago at Kmart all the time. You would be shopping and they would announce a "blue light special" and everyone would run over there to see the deal.

Okay, a few flash-bangs when the mob gets outa control can liven up the party! (Remember kids, do not try this at home. We are professionals.)

Hi RoeD. You finally got me to sign up. That might not be so funny if it were you.

RoeDapple 6 years, 1 month ago

Thought that might be you Dan! You're right, but that's the way it rolls around here.

Everybody meet Dan, he's okay.

I saw a flash mob once. It was a bunch of college age dancers. Every single one of them had a smile on their face, as did I and everyone I saw in the crowd. Of all the things people their age could be doing, they were making everyone happy. I'm still smiling as I write this.

RoeDapple 6 years, 1 month ago

Okay, I can't hardly stand this guy but can you imagine him leading a flash mob?
