Behind the Scenes in Greece: Ass Snipers

Last summer, my friend M and I went to Greece. It was beautiful and amazing, but a good deal of it was spent scouting out ass with our cameras. Yes, while most respectable tourists take pictures of the Acropolis and other historic ruins, the two of us ran around like perverts snapping shots of the derrieres of unsuspecting natives.

This wasn't entirely my fault. A gentleman friend of mine who is particularly fond of the female backside requested that, as a souvenir, I take photographic documentation of the Greek women and their gluteus maximi. And like the loyal friend that I am, I complied. Hence, the Ass Snipers.

For said gentleman friend, our crowning moment was on a volcano tour in Santorini. M and I were on the top deck of our tour boat admiring, aka staring unabashedly at with dropped jaws, the physique of two Greek demigods. Suddenly demigod #1's girlfriend's dress flew up in the wind as she leaned over the railing. M, with reflexes like a pubescent ninja, captured the Kodass moment in its full exposure. Never the subtle types, we immediately huddled together to review the digital shot, giggling like perverted morons.

But our moment of glory happened on the island of Paros. We were walking back to our hotel when we saw this:

I really think this photo captures the serenity of the island. Notice how you can almost hear the gentle rippling of the...water. Yeah, yeah. I also took pictures of the statues and the churches and blah, blah, blah. But this. This is a rare vision of Greece that few have beheld. Your welcome.


  1. That is the best tourist picture I've ever seen. It's Carrot Top impersonating two ham hocks trying to escape from a swimsuit, right?

    If only there was some special contest you could enter it in....

  2. oh man, i have many of these photos from when we went on our honeymoon in DR. gotta love it!
    Visit me at

  3. Oh, this is priceless! I love that you guys were ass-snapping tourists and aren't ashamed of it. This made me giggle :)

  4. I suddenly have a hankerin' for cottage cheese...

  5. Oh no, no no no no.
    Please no?

  6. Is it a beach? Is it a whale? Is it a beached whale? As tails wail let me tell you a whale of a tale of a whales tail.

  10. Pat said to come on over... I am glad I did.
    That photo is just too funny .

    I am probably one of the few people that
    actually enjoys the chaos and smell of petrol
    in Athens... so much that I have been there
    four or five times... I saw some strange
    Greek goddesses but never one like your photo..

  11. Pat forced me over here. I am glad I came. Awesomepost. I like that you captured the bad ass rather than the good ass. Funny stuff.

  12. Pat said come so I did. Funny read and outstanding photo...ya know, in a disgusting way!
