I mean… assistant.
Starting with this picture, there was some amusement to be had. We were walking on our way to the london eye, or eye of london, or british airways eye of london, depending on who you talk to when I was caught blindsided by a guy twirling a toothbrush on his finger.
I stopped in hopes of his performance improving, and it did somewhat. As it turns out this guy was about to escape from a straight jacket, but he needed someone to put it on him and do other various assistant type things. He picked me out of the crowd for some reason. Likely because I was canadian and he had some USA jokes up his sleeve.
Anyways, I got to put him in a straight jacket and all was well. Until the dumb bastard started going on for 20 minutes about how this was his job, and essentially begging for people to pay him with bills only (that’s 5 pounds or higher in england)… At that point people started walking away and he probably scared off half of the people that would’ve just dropped something in his hat.
To the point, he did a double dislocation of both his shoulders with an amazing “crack.” I was right behind him, I heard it most. And I did my job by counting down two minutes. It was amusing and he did it. No surprise there. There’s video, from digital cameras, if I can find a way to edit them cleanly i’ll post it
I didn’t get paid, but it was fun.
