A friend with photoshop is all you need

Jimmy is a good guy – I like him, he works in security and trains MMA. Which means if he can’t gain access to your server, he’ll simply beat the password out of you.

Then he posted this picture on twitter in a cowboy hat. Ridiculous cowboy hat

As they say, a little photoshop is a dangerous thing – and the temptation was too great to not take advantage of the opportunity.

This got Jimmy a bit worked up, so I challenged him to a duel.

He said he’d kill me – to which I said that’s a crime punishable by hanging till he’s dead, dead, dead!

The subsequent barrage of messages proved that Jimmy was indeed unchained.

With his other friends and colleagues chiming in, Jimmy said he felt like he was surrounded by children.

Eventually though, the gag ran a bit old and I was worried that he’d get me in a choke hold at some conference so I tried to make amends. He seemed to genuinely accept my apology and even came to me one day and asked me for a favour.

Of course – I jumped on the opportunity to make amends with Jimmy. I think I done a pretty good job too. Hope he’s happy.
