BERRY BITS: Candid Camera at Silver Barn

This past September, the TV show Candid Camera filmed three segments at the checkout area of Silver Barn Farms. (Unfortunately, they mistakenly gave its location as Brooklyn.) For the first practical joke, the cashier asked unsuspecting customers for 3 forms of photo ID when they paid with credit cards. The second prank had the same cashier ask for price checks on every item because her scanner was out of order. In the final segment, the cashier talked on her cell phone incessantly while customers were waiting to check out. Most of the victims were surprisingly patient while having these tricks pulled on them, but one lady did admit that she wanted to kill the cashier, who was portrayed by the daughter of Candid Camera co-host, Peter Funt. If you missed the original airing, you can still catch it online at tvland.com (Episode 107).
