THOSE THINGS SHOULD NOT BE IN CIVILIAN HANDS

RCMP are searching for a man who attempted to rob a motel in North Battleford armed with what appeared to be a projector screen.

"Give me the money or...I'll make you watch my home movies!"

Next time, bring a gub.

"I heard you guys had free movies so I brought my own screen!"

This is one of my favorite stories, related to a projector screen.

Having invited Charles Laughton and a number of other film stars to dinner one evening, pianist Artur Rubenstein entertained his guests before the meal by showing home movies of his children's amateur stage performances. The "audience" was visibly relieved when the last reel came to an end and dinner was served.
"I've always regretted that I never had children," remarked Laughton to his host as they passed into the dining room, "and never more so than now. Because, Mr. Rubenstein, if I had children, I would make them play the piano for you."

Those things are dangerous! They present multiple opportunities to look stupid and pinch fingers when trying to set up.

The robber's psychologist told him he had a problem with projection but he misunderstood what that meant.

Points for creativity, surely?

Don't make me bring out my carousel projector!!
