This is the point at which everybody says "I'm never voting for you again..."

Bad dad a dum

Seriously it's an usual but good theme, that'll make us think a bit I guess.

The only thing I can think of, is to gather a selection of various fruit fools and photograph them.

Re: April Photo Challenge. Discussion.

First of all, congratulations on the win, Alex!

Secondly, what an interesting theme! I have no idea of what to do for my second pic, though. I was wondering if I had any ornaments/pictures of clowns, fools or harlequins and such, and found the images of those little fools on the jokers in a pack of playing cards.

Now to put my thinking cap on for the next entry.

Re: April Photo Challenge. Discussion.

Hyeh, Hyeh. A rumble of disgrumblement ripples through the crowd. If it's any consolation, I'm going to have to work for this one, myself. I had several days to mull over various potential themes; most of which came with preconceived potential entries. The late flash, in the eve of April First, caught me by surprise as well.

Oh, ye of little faith...

Being newish in these parts; I browsed the last years' photo challenges to get a sense of what's been done, and the resultant entries.

Confidence is high that this crew will produce a broad and interesting array of interpretations on my evil theme.

Talysia opens with a hard-to-beat Joker hand. Nicely done.

Tiffany horrifies: invoking what must have been a truly abominable movie. Excellent!

Grinning over the "Gagged and Towed," Anivid. There's a story about how "Great and Terrible" devolved to something sounding like, either, a cocktail or a Wodehouse character. Another time...

See now, in the UK G and T generally refers to Gin and Tonic but I somehow didn't think that was what your name referred to...

Now that's exactly what I first thought when I saw it, but my mind never went further to question it until now!!

It's all much clearer, and right now the other meaning of G and T is appropriate as my mind is blank on what to go for this month
