Theme Thursday-An Impression

Signore Mimo works the Piazza Del Campo in Siena Italy. He strolls about looking for an unsuspecting tourist. Ah, yes he sees his next victim.

Signore Mimo takes his water pistol and shoots it into the sky. Drops land  directly on this gentleman's head. Confusion and perhaps, dismay at what might be falling given the sunny skies is evident. He keeps on walking while the crowd laughs.

Signore Mimo works the crowd as the poor tourist walks in the opposite direction.


I felt the impression that I was his next victim. Heart thumping, I was ready to get the shot. Alas, Signore Mimo prefers unsuspecting prey and sauntered off, his job done for the day. Ciao Bella!

For more impressions--take a look here!

Good thing it's just a water pistola! But I imagine he doesn't leave a good impression with the local policia, wot? Love the theme take ;)

JeffScape said...

Irreverently funny. And I love irreverence!

Wings said...

Fun take!

Betsy said...

Ha...looks like his hat is made of felt, too! :)

Kate Hanley said...

Funny. I bet he was fun to watch.

Stephanie said...

Funny!

Kris said...

I am unsure about that hat.

Betty said...

Good post! And I love the red beret. Will be in Siena in June - had better take my umbrella.

brian-to watch him was magic. He wove his way in and out of the crowd and no one really knew what was going on until four or five people started to look at the sky and wondering why their heads were wet. So much fun! I just wish I could've caught him in the act. best-c

subby --oh do I have a story to tell about the policia--miami vice is rome--it will definitely be a post--tubbs and crockett live. Signore Mimo's behaviour is ok--I wish I thought about the pistola though--best c

C.M. Jackson said...

jeffscape--oh signore was definitely irrevent. He worked the crowd and was adamant about his being invisible--once, noticed he blended into the crowd until people forgot about him only to reappear--a great show--best-c

C.M. Jackson said...

wings--this was a tough one. c

betsy--you know I didn't even think about that--I feel better now 'cause I'm closer to the theme-thanks-c

kate--it was an amazing 30 minutes-c

stephanie-at first, one wasn't certain but then it became a circus --remarkable! c

kris--I know what you mean;-)

betty--you will love Siena--take a water pistol too! Let me know if you need any advice on restaurants and places to see-best c

subby said...

Do tell, do tell, heh, heh...

C.M. Jackson said...

subby--stay tuned my friend. Until then keep that theme song playing...c

subby said...

"Keep your eye on the sparrow, when the going gets narrow( well, well, well, well... )" oh wait...that's the one for "Baretta"; my bad!

C.M. Jackson said...

subby--Baretta? now that's an entirely different post..c

Baino said...

Excellent. I wish our spruikers had such a sense of humour.

Jill said...

I do hope it is JUST WATER in his pistol!
He is a CLASS "A" STINKER! LOVE his red beret.

Dreamhaven said...
