Street Performer in Paris

While waiting in line to get into the Notre Dame - I'm talking about the Notre Dame de Paris (the one with the hunchback), not the University of Notre Dame (hunchback equivalents: Charlie Weis , Jimmy Clausen) - we encountered a particularly entertaining street performer. With all of the people waiting in line making up his captive audience, he donned a mask (which reminds me vaguely of the "mask" Hannibal wore in his Silence of the Lambs escape scene) and proceeded to scare the crap out of passing pedestrians. He would sneak up behind them and hold their hands, or wedge himself between a couple, or wrap his arm around them. They'd turn, see the mask, and go running down the street. The wait was long, so the entertainment was well worth some of our spare change. Below are some pics.
