  1. The boys were very funny, and fairly certainly not gay.

    1. A gay version would have been fun.

  2. That was adorable! I'd forgotten how funny and sweet some of those early Candid Camera shows were.

  3. A colleague of mine was on Candid Camera in Singapore. He had sneaked into town one afternoon when he was supposed to be at his desk. There was a Candid Camera stunt going on, with people being charged for riding up an escalator. Payment was at the top, so it caused a bit of a traffic jam and people were just paying up in order to get out of the way. My colleague was really worried that his boss would see it, but fortunately it wasn't actually broadcast. Maybe not funny enough!

    1. The funny thing was that the obedient Singaporeans paid up, whilst the expats were furious and argumentative!

    2. That's why there's no crime in Singapore; people do what they're told!

    1. The UK Candid Camera was way ahead of this.

    2. I wouldn't say I 'laughed', but I did find it very amusing. All those kids being so easily seduced; I remember it well.

    3. I will say again, our Candid Camera was much better This is American humour, not great British humour. That barely made me smile for more than a second.

    4. I didn't get to see much of it, but I do remember a few real classics (the English ones).

    5. I note you have some people who feel that you have been hard done by by my comment and have leaned over to tell you how amazingly funny the US Candid Camera is. They do not know us very well do they!

    6. Yes, you're a beast. I shall be blubbing until supper time.

  5. The first candid cameras were ”candid” because people really didn't know they were being joked on.

  7. I had a teacher like that once - she was called Miss Pringle and became pregnant after a couple of terms.

    1. The head boy of my house (as a new boy), was expelled for having an affair with the headmaster's secretary. Very exotic; I hope he put it on his CV.

    1. We had very few female teachers; the ones we did have were DRAGONS.

  11. This was when reality was real. I found it very funny. British and American humor is different in some ways, but funny is funny and we all need to laugh more and criticize less.

    1. As they always said in the Reader's Digest; Laughter is the best medicine.

  12. Ah, the good old days...I look around now & see cameras on the stop lights, in every building, in everyone's hand and I miss the days of privacy. I get a kick every time I Google my address in the country because it always brings up a distant neighbor's property. Tee-hee. I'm anonymous! (Sort of). Great post, Cro! xo

    1. We don't have all that CCTV here, but I know that in the UK it's everywhere. In fact your every move is on film, and could be even more so with cameras in TV's and (of course) computers. BIG BROTHER.
