Believe it or not, this was a boy scout photography merit badge requirement. They wanted me to do a "story in photos" or something like that.
About this creation
Jacob: Okay, it's just a simple leak. Easy fix. Jacob: Drat, it's rusted. Bob: Hi Jacob! What's up? Jacob: Hi Bob. So much for easy fix now that Bob has arrived. Bob: So, what are you doing down here? Jacob: Leaky pipe. Turns out the whole thing is rusted, so the miracle of duct tape isn't going to help much. I'll have to replace it. Bob: That stinks. Why don't you just call a plumber? Jacob: Are you kidding? They cost you an arm and a leg, and then run off without doing much at all. Besides, it's just a leaky pipe. Easy fix. Jacob: Well, now that you're here you might as well make yourself useful. Go shut off the water. Bob: Will do. Ten minutes later...
Jacob: BOB, HAVE YOU SHUT OFF THE WATER YET? Bob: YES, I DID! Jacob: Good! Jacob: GAH!!! BOB, GET DOWN HERE!!! Bob: What? Did I forget something? Jacob: You didn't shut off the water! Bob: Yes I did! I shut of the faucet, the toilet, the dishwasher...and I was going to shut off the rain outside, but I couldn't find the valve. Jacob: Why you buffoon...I meant shut of the water shut-off valve! Alright, I'll do it myself. In the meantime, try to find something to hold that water!
Bob: This barrel should last us 30 minutes or so. Bob: Or maybe not... Bob: Hey...it stopped!
RUMBLE RUMBLE Bob: AHHHHH!!! Jacob: Emergency! EMERGENCY! Bob: Believe me...I noticed! Jacob: The shut-off valve was busted! We'll have to replace that later, but for now, we have to fix this! Jacob: an extra pipe should be around here somewhere... Jacob: Found it! Bob: Let's see if I can plug this thing. Bob: There! Jacob: Alright... Jacob: There! By the way, I sure hoped you plugged it with something that dissolves in water. Bob: Like duct tape? Jacob: Um, no, not like duct tape. Why? Bob: Cause that's what I plugged it with. Jacob: WHAT!?
RUMBLE RUMBLE RUMBLE
Jacob: Maybe I better call a plumber... Bob: I like that idea!
