Photo Phun: But Where Was That Delightful Steve Guttenberg?


Number Five is Alive! We were really hoping this photo, taken in Reston last Thursday, was a location shot from the much-anticipated remake of the 1980s comedy classic Short Circuit. Sadly it was just some SWAT Team exercise, where police officers simulated a hostage situation at a Reston church and used their robotic overlord servant to ferry some bottled water over to the "hostages." All we can say is that it's a shame that delightful Ally Sheedy wasn't available to play one of hostages.


  1. This is great. In the meantime someone has spraypainted "MS 13" on the Northshore Drive trail underpass. If this marks the arrival of this lovely group of individuals at Lake Anne I can't tell you how thrilled I am at the moment.

  2. Maybe they should name the robot Gunga Din?

  3. Raised in public housing, I worked my tail off to get out of the slums. Now Hudgins, Plum and their "more low-cost housing" tunnel vision are bringing the slums to me.

    It's enough to make a body vote Republican!

  4. Go scubadiver, go!

    And Anonymous 9:58 -- that is really funny!
