Behind Blue Eyes
What good would an April Fools joke be if it didn’t fool anybody?
(Fake News I guess?)
I’ve been fooled a few times myself over the years.
But I also feel a bit guilty about doing it because there’s always a few people
who don’t realize it’s a joke – and they go around telling everybody
about this wonderful new movie about Billy the Kid
– starring his (non-existent) grandson.
NO. There no new Billy the Kid movie. (Sadly. I wish there was.)
YES: there is such a person (or more) called James Tyler McCarty.
(Though I didn’t know that) But it’s not this guy that I made up.
(Seems you can make up just about any name
and such a person will actually exist).
NO: Billy the Kid has not been “Resurrected”. (Don’t tell Spielberg).
NOR does Sergio Estafa (which means ‘Scam’ in Spanish) exist.
(I don’t think?)
YES there are a few “Sam Westwoods” – but my Sam is a composite name
from Sam Peckinpah and Clint Eastwood.
NO: “Bruce Willis” and “Benedict Cumberbach”
are not interested in my fictitious movie.
(I don’t think? Too bad).
NO: this image of James Tyler McCarty is not real.
This image is a composite I constructed from these pics I found on the Net:
Then I found this image of Martin Short:
Which I reversed horizontally:
Then I removed the hat
and enlarged his ears.
Then I found a Billy the Kid hat on the Net.
(You can buy one of these)
I dropped it on Marty’s head.
Then I dropped Marty’s head on the body.
Then I wrote up a bunch of ridiculous crap that sounded somewhat credible.
It was fun.
I hope it was fun for you.
