I've got it figured out, Henry!
You use fast film, a wide angel lens pre-set for focus at about the 3 ft mark, and a decent aperture - say f8 - to get enough DOF.
You have a wireless remote with the trigger on your chin. You have the 'roo trained really well so that as soon as you toss the camera, he punches your chin and triggers the remote. If you toss was good, and the timing right, you'll get the shot.
If not, at least the guy with enough sense to stay back gets this shot!
