Anna and Bob were browsing through a thrift store. Neither had anything in particular that they wanted to look for, they were just killing time and seeing if there was anything that might catch their eye that they would be interested in.
Anna stopped at a shelf of knickknacks to look at some cute little cat figurines. Bob went to the next set of shelves to look at some pictures.
Anna was inspecting a set of salt and pepper shakers that looked like Siamese cats when she heard Bob call to her.
“Hey, Anna!” he called. “Look at this!”
Anna set the shakers down and turned to look.
Bob stood in the middle of the aisle with a wooden picture frame draped over his shoulders and a big grin on his face. “I’ve been framed!” he joked.
Anna rolled her eyes but a second later chuckled. She grabbed her cell phone and quickly snapped a picture. “You and your joke may be silly, Bob,” she said as she tapped some buttons on her phone, “but I can’t help it. I’ve got to get a picture of it and share it.”
“Go right ahead,” Bob said. “Share the laughs.”
And so she did, and the picture of the framed Bob was shared with the world, and it quickly went viral.
