Just found this kind of funny picture of Frank Zappa playing 'Ping Pong'

Funny because I thought I would never see Frank performing any kind of sport thing.

Where is this picture taken, when? by whom? And why ?

Anyone with more information about it?

That's GREAT! And it's obviously not just Frank posing for some reason. He's actually playing. Whose house is that, I wonder? Does anyone see an ashtray anywhere?

According to www.larrytt.com, the photo was contributed by someone named Hank Mohaski. Now, what's odd is that "mohaski" or "mohasky" was an early 20th century slang word for marijuana.

Here's another one:

If that's Bird Reynolds in the photo, then it's probably at FZ's own house.

I think they are from a People Magazine article on him that I read back when Jewish Princess was being attacked by the Anti-Def people!

These seem to be outtakes from the same photo session, but they didn't appear in the article you're referring to (May 21, 1979, pp. 111-112).

The bird is identified as Bird Reynolds in the article, and the photo does seem to have been taken at FZ's house.
