As much as I love my Zuikos ... Leica M3/90mm Summicron; circa 1981-82. Note: I did NOT retouch this image for dust/dirt, so it is "as is". No post-processing other than unsharp mask to recover original sharpness in the Kodachrome original. Kodachrome STILL rules.

Dummies for Dummies

This evening I went to my local pharmacy to pick up some film processing. On the way out I passed the cashier and saw a counter display of some of those "... For Dummies" books. One of them was Baby Names for Dummies.

Whaaaat??? I mean, really, are there special names for children of Dummies? Are "Dummies" so stupid they need a special book to help them navigate the world of names for their child-to-be-born? The mind reels.

But it got me to thinking. Without knowing all the "Dummy" titles, this could be a really fun exercise ... come up with the stupidest, dumbest "for Dummies" titles we can think of. So without giving it too much more thought, I offer my own ultimate "for Dummies" title:

Dummy Books for Dummies

Bring em on ... post your ideas and see if you can top that!
