Post your awful photography jokes here.

I'll start.

Q: Why is flying an F-16 better than flying an F-22?
A: It's one stop faster!

Q: What did Mozart do when his Olympus broke?
A: He borrowed Pachelbel's Canon.

Q: What's wrong with most cameras that won't take good pictures?
A: The nut behind the viewfinder!

I'm not creative enough to come up with my own but that is going to be my new answer to all the 'why doesn't my camera...' posts. The others?

Remember way back when, when someone had a computer problem, the common thing to say would be "Oh, sounds like a PEBKAC error".

(Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair.)

Now we can say, "Oh, sounds like a PEBV error".

...a what?

Problem Exists Behind Viewfinder.

Actually that is still in effect today.

I'm not creative enough for this either, but I like the last Q and A.

In my case, it would be just about any photo I've ever taken.

Works for me. Back in the day though, the computer problems usually stemmed from a power switch set to the 0 (off) instead of 1 (on) or the power cord disconnected. Still a PEBKAC in the end.

That was a problem easily solved with switchable power strips. For those who actually used them that is. It Did create another problem with some of the brain trust... Now NOTHING worked! "...Um, did you turn on the power strip?" ------silence------click------goodbye.

True too. But I find some people use them to shut the computer off and that can be bad for a computer. And I'm the one got to fix it after they blew something out by doing that.

P.S. I think we need to turn this back to the OT.

I know a bunch of bad photography jokes, but I won't repeat them here. In fact, it makes me shutter just to think of them.

Agreed...

What do you call someone who buys lenses he/she neither needs nor particularly wants?
Addicted.

When is shooting RAW a bad idea?
When the Police show up and tell you to put on some clothes.

(won't really take credit for that one, it's based on someone's sig line).

(hey, he did say Awful... )

Does one need to flash to get correct exposure in this case?

That's my problem - all my shots suffer from indecent exposure.

That was pretty thin, maybe our sense of humor's underdeveloped.

Better stop and fix it.
