"Hey, guys, I have a great idea!"
This phrase was, no doubt, the inciting incident for this Julius Caesar debacle in Aspen (pictured): http://www.aspentimes.com/article/20070830/NEWS/70830004
...and this Dracula tragedy in Texas, which I actually wrote about in the book: http://www.ringofsteel.org/reference/news.html
...as well as a stabbing I heard tell about at UCD? Someone who knows the facts comment here and let me know what really happened. Oh, and of course, the demise of Brandon Lee: http://www.thecrow.info/accident.htm
So if you hear someone uttering the above phrase, or this one: "I know what we can do!" Run away. Far away. :) ~Jenn
P.S. If we were to make a Darwin Award for stage combat blunders specifically, what would you name it? Comment here please, and we'll institute said award once we have the perfect name.
