Who can resist the hole-in-head tourist photo-op?

SUBMITTED BY: Robert Rizzo    LOCATION: Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (2009)

If you take a piece of plywood, paint a goofy character — any character — cut a hole in the head and prop the wood up in the middle of the desert, within a half an hour, a busload of tourists will show up and poke their face through it.


This culturally sensitive photo-op is at Tiki Jim’s, a classy South Carolina chain of novelty t-shirt shops that also do a brisk side business in fart machines and “fart alarms.”

(Robert Rizzo is one of the most respected photojournalists in the Carolinas).
