It’s spring, and lots of schools are having their outdoor fairs. And what draws a bigger crowd than seeing one’s favorite classmates and teachers (and maybe not-so-favorite classmates and teachers) take to the tank plank?
Here’s one ambitious cheerleading squad who is charging 25 cents a throw:
I’m sure they made their weight in quarters!
And here’s another dunk tank, whose occupant has just seen a hard ball connect with the target, heard the bell ding, and felt the plank fall away.
Work with me here for a minute! If you were the one who threw that ball, and the dunk-ee could be any male celeb in the world, who would it be? Who you would you like to see emerge from that tank, his t-shirt all soggy and tight against his chest, his hair slicked back from the angular planes of his face, his eyes glimmering with amusement, or maybe a little resentment?
I’m going to surprise everyone and go with someone besides Josh Holloway and Mark Wahlberg (although if they get picked by someone else, I promise to hang out and enjoy the show). I'm going with Michael Phelps, the Olympic gold metalist. Because I’d be sure he could find his way back up to the surface...and he’d be mighty fine to watch hauling himself out of that tank.
Who’s next? (Steph, do you have a certain young actor to put in the hot seat?)
