Subject:OFF-TOPIC: What is this called? From:Patty Ewy <pewy -at- ICONTROL -dot- COM> Date:Fri, 11 Apr 1997 11:48:14 -0500
Please point me to the word or term, or a resource for finding the word or
term for those painted boards that they often have at oh, say carnivals and
tourist traps, where there's a cut-out where you're supposed to put your
face, and then have someone take a picture of you in the painted scene??
You know, they'll have a big painting of some hunky guy and some really
curvy woman, and the places for their faces are removed--you stick your face
there and get a picture of what you'd look like with the cartoonish bodies??
Sorry for the off-topic post; I'm writing captions for a web site and can't
find a way to describe this.
Please reply privately to me ... don't want to tie up the list with this
