    Found a good camera on holiday in Ireland. About a weeks worth of somebody`s holiday snaps but no info on it. Genuinely no way to return it, and so my friend got a free camera. Ho-hum. :)

    I once heard a story about an unwanted tag-along hiker who wouldn`t leave this couple alone, I guess he was really being stupid and being a nuisance. So these hikers took this EWWW dudes toothbrush and took pictures ( with his disposable camera ) of themselves with his toothbrush being brushed with their a*ses. But The thing is that the dude didn`t know, until he got back home and had the roll developed...so for the rest of the time he was using his toothbrush. Kinda mean but form what Chaz and Cass told me, sounded like the dood deserved it.

    What really amuses me is how much he resembles the guy in this video I found when I was thinking about buying one of these cigarette machines. Yeah, I guess it`s kind of weird to enjoy a video of someone demonstrating how you use one of these machines, but the way the guy talks and looks makes me crack up laughing every time I see it.

    Questions:
    1)Since you clearly have a camera what is the brand and model you used and what is the brand and model you are seeking?

    And if you don`t i`ll find you and eat your still beating heart as the rest of your family watches in horror. That`s how to get a camera back.

    That`s so funny.
    I REALLY hope that he loses his camera.
    And someone finds this.
    And returns it.

    heh, I saw this thinking there would be a lot of commenters wrongfully accusing him of ripping off the "girl quitting her job". I was right.

    Would posing next to expensive cars and piles of cash while holding a reward sign work just as well?
