What I Have Learned

What I have learned from STUNTMAN!, the autobiography of Hal Needham (our current Doomed Book Club selection), is that when a stuntman wants to play a joke on another stuntman, he shoots his friend with an arrow, for example. "[I] let out a scream of pain," Needham reports of one such merry prank. This reminds me of the time in another Doomed Book Club selection when comedian Joe E. Lewis joshed with a heckler by throwing scalding liquid in his face. Good times!
