[Slingshot John Milligan calming down Waitress Covered in Egg]

Description: Photograph of Slingshot John Milligan calms down the waitress covered in egg after shooting through it with his slingshot. In the image that woman, holding a skillet is making a face from being covered in egg matter and shells, one shell has landed on her head. Narration by Junebug Clark: After letting John scramble three dozen eggs of of the back of his hand, Joe decided to do the shot he had pictured. Inspired by the Greek Coney Islands in Detroit that attracted crowds by cooking breakfast in the mornings and coney dogs by night in their front window. On the first shot the waitress in the photo thought that she would release the egg it would fall toward the pan, John would take aim, release the stainless steel slingshot ball, it would travel to the egg and punch a hole in it as it fell toward the pan. She had no idea that the egg would explode virtually at the moment that she let go of it. Calming her down, about a half a dozen more shots were attempted and made. John Milligan, a machinist in Detroit, Michigan who was also the “country’s greatest slingshot expert. “He won local fame by shooting the marks out of playing cards, hitting objects in mid air and bagging game in the field.” Joe took John national with his photos documenting his talent and accuracy. To assure accuracy, he has designed his own precision-built aluminum sling, called the Milligan Special. Additional photos and information can be found in the Clark Family Collection. Photos from this series appeared in eight national publications. Here you can find articles in “Life Magazine . February 3, 1961. Pages 80-83. And in a fifteen page pictorial in the book “Photojournalism” by Joe Clark, HBSS. Photo by: Joe Clark, ...
