The Best Time Was...

 

Phew! - Paul Duquin, Jerry Filim, and I were hanging out at the Thruway Mall around Christmas time. The mall was packed liked any other Christmas season. A usual store to visit was Spenser's. While we were in there, Jerry came across a product that piqued his curiosity. It was an aerosol can of something called "Phew!". The can advertised that its contents would mimic the most awful of foulest, smelling farts. Of course, Jerry bought a can. For the next hour or so, the three of us proceeded to wander through the mall. At each pay phone stand or sitting bench, Jerry would let loose a mist from the can. We ran far enough away to be immune to the odor, yet close enough to watch the reaction on the faces of unsuspecting shoppers. This was classic "Candid Camera" stuff. "Phew!" lived up to its expectations. People had an expression of revulsion on their faces. They scanned the crowd for the guilty looking perpetrator. But, we were never found out. That was one of the best laughs I ever had. That was the best time!
