You gotta be KIDding?


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.

ANYWAY …

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:

I don’t know who these good looking folks are, but I used this guy’s  body (in circle).

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.
(Great Scott!)

Then I dropped Marty’s head on the body.

Voila !!
Instant Billy.

Then I wrote up a bunch of ridiculous crap that sounded somewhat credible.

It was fun.
I hope it was fun for you.
