For the past couple of weeks I've been trolling through the pictures I tool during last year's Enfilade! for inspiration to promote this year's convention.
While I took over 750 pictures, I kept coming back to one Gene Anderson's kid-friendly "Games for Young Warriors."
The led photo lent itself to a humorous "Wish You Were Here (Sharing the Misery and Danger)" post card-style image.
And oddly enough, one of my favorite images of last year's Enfilade is this one of a handful of Foreign Legionnaires making a last stand against the horde of Arabs.
It seems like every game game session I've participated in, at least one player will reference a movie or TV show quote, or character catchphrase.
Since gaming and movie quotes often fit well together in a "peanut butter and jelly" sort of way, the Legionnaire's last stand seemed like a natural for Oliver Hardy's catchphrase rebuke to Stan Laurel.

Laurel and Hardy's heyday was actually before my time. (Really, I'm not THAT old).
However, growing up in the pre-VCR Era, there was no On-Demand, or Netflix. Outside the three networks' prime time viewing slot, the movies and TV shows my siblings, friends and I watched were at least 10 years old. Most were a lot older.
So I'm well acquainted with not only Laurel and Hardy, but Abbott and Costello, the Marx Brothers, The Three Stooges, The Little Rascals (Our Gang)--and since I was raised in Upstate New York--The Bowery Boys.
I'll keep trolling the internet for some classic comedy gems to
steal incorporate to my own repertoire.
