A Twelve Monkey Moment

I came across a fascinating old picture in a shoebox the other day. It’s got to be at least sixty or seventy years old…

I think I know where it was taken but I haven’t yet got a handle on who was being buried and why we have a copy.

What I love most about it is the detail. It was clearly taken on a big old plate camera and all those long dead faces are just frozen there - a moment in time captured for posterity...


But then I noticed the Spooky Thing, up in the left-hand corner of the frame. A curiously modern-looking profile, complete with shades...

And the question that has been plaguing me since I noticed that figure is this -

WTF is Adam Sandler doing in my old photo?

The Timelord of shite comedy?
