Yes, because taking a mock blow-job picture is so much more mature.
I didn't intend for this to be a "post pictures of you with musicians" thread, by the way. I mean if people want to take it there, whatever, but I wasn't going to post anyway.
By the way, my pictures I take with musicians are to remember the experience in the event that it's a really fond memory or someone I really idolize. It's not like: "Well here's the awkward obligatory horns picture". My photo in a New York Diner with Manticora at 4AM is completely genuine, it was the summation of 2 days of good times and random fun at two shows. I don't stop people to get pictures, but if it's a real relaxed environment and I've said what I wanted to say, I'll go for it unless I sense some sort of a weird vibe.
