    You made an ESTJ cry????!

    I doubt I would do it, but I am hoping you will and that you will post pics. Sorry, but that's the truth of it. Just kidding sort of. You are a beauty to behold and if you think it would be fun, I'm sure it would be a pleasing site.

    I'm not sure whether to tell you to buck up or put on the bunny suit.

    Okay, so I would do the dunk tank in the rabbit suit. Now that WOULD live up to the hype. I promise. (Unless my head fell off)

    And how exactly do you buck up? It sounds kinda fun.

    Lookin4, I guess with something like this, you will have people with all different reactions. There will be people there for innocent games and there will be guys who think you are beautiful and fun, and there will be creeps who think demeaning thoughts. It will likely all be there, so it depends how you feel about it in its totality.

    Silly. Pentecostals are supposed to cry. Emotion is more than acceptable, it's expected. In that context (my brother is an ESTJ Pentecostal preacher) crying (and all kinds of other emotional demonstrations) are normal and, being normal, they are what the ESTJs do. I, OTOH, being very private with my emotions, have very nearly had my salvation questioned for not being demonstrative enough. They obviously didn't see me going through half a box of tissue while watching 50 First Dates.

    sorry for the

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Hi Lookin4,

    I remember one old carnie in a dunking booth at a fair. For starters, he called all the young kids "booger-eater." Skinny or even medium-weight women and girls were "skinny Minnie," and he had some similar rhyme for skinny boys. Typical insults were that the thrower was too weak to get the ball to the target or too uncoordinated to hit the target. He would tease them about long hair blocking their vision or baggy clothes tangling up their throw.

    But other than that, he stayed away from personal stuff or fat jokes or whatever. He wanted to tease the thrower a bit, but he didn't want to alienate the onlooking crowd in the process. (After all, the taunts are mostly geared at entertaining the crowd, not the thrower.) The old man came down hardest on the young kids (age 8-12) with the booger-eater label and some taunts about being too small to get the ball to the target. The kids would get a little pissed, but the crowd just thought it was hilarious to see the young kids get grim and determined to take the old man out.

    The old man did his taunts only when there was an actual thrower at the line, and he went silent between throwers. In between throwers he had an assistant working the crowd, collecting the money, doing a steady patter about dunking the old man, and gathering up the balls after each thrower. The old man only came alive when there was a paying customer lined up and ready to throw. (No use giving the show away for free.) The old man only really had a total of about 5 lines and a couple simple insults; the crowd turnover was quick enough that he didn't need to be endlessly creative. But he mixed and matched his lines with his insults pretty well. And he occasionally interacted with the throwers a bit, for example coaxing them to come back and try again when they missed all three balls.

    Be prepared to project your voice a bit. There may be a plexiglas shield in front of you to protect you from stray balls, and you have to yell over or through the plexiglas shield*. Don't feel that you have to keep up a running patter all the time in order to keep the crowd energy high; leave that kind of steady stream of patter to the assistant who collects the balls and the money and works the crowd. You want to preserve your voice, so just hold off on your lines until someone's actually up at the throwing line. Choose a good assistant who will keep the patter going in between throwers and who will sell your act to the audience.

    Anyway, that's what I remember from the last time I saw a dunking booth in operation at a large fair.

    FL

    *[Edit:] I think I remember one gal who stood up on the seat, leaned on the plexiglas and yelled over it, then ducked down behind the plexiglas when the throw came.]

    Comparing the personage to a small rodent perhaps?
    Relating their musclature to your cousin Sue the wall flower?
    Perhaps insinuating that your beagle throws harder?

    Shame it's not a more adult audience as there's some prime stuff in The Long Kiss Goodnight.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Typical response from me...."What's your gut feeling tell you?"

    If you think there are ulterior motives in them asking you AND you don't feel it appropriate or don't feel comfortable doing it, don't. If you are personally comfortable with yourself and how to handle the jerks that might be there (both office and strangers), go for it and have not regrets. Just be sure that it's what YOU want to do. What's important here is not what we think, but what you think about it.

    Where's this at again? And when?

    Sigh. I have to admit, the movie was just awful from a "T" point of view... but I got choked up a number of times anyway. Go figure.
