Yes, I know – they’re staring at nothing.  The photographer says, “Now, look over here” and he points; they look.  However, sometimes their expressions make one wonder… maybe, just maybe they are looking at something quite extraordinary.  The couple above look like they’ve just witnessed a crime being committed. Or maybe a homeless person is exposing himself.  Who knows?  The possibilities are endless.  Sure, it’s probably nothing – but it’s fun to speculate.

Photographer: “Okay, now pretend a giant alien spacecraft is hovering in the sky, and it has telepathically gained control of your mind.”

Yes, Baxter is just staring at a hand holding a doggie biscuit… but deep down he feels intense shame.  If the gang ever catches sight of him in this sweater, he’ll never hear the end of it.

Him: “There goes the greatest man the world has ever known.”
Her:  “He’s so dreamy. (sigh)”
