It can also be said one's response to a clown might depend on where it's seen. At a circus or a party, a clown is normal and may easily be funny. The same clown knocking on one's front door at sunset is more likely to generate fear or distress than laughter or amusement. This effect is summed up in a quote often attributed to actor Lon Chaney, Sr.: "There is nothing funny about a clown in the moonlight." Ute myths feature a cannibalistic clown monster called the Siats.[citation needed
Maybe there is a point there.
Quote of the day from a fund manager: "This is worse than a divorce.... I've lost half of my net worth and I still have my wife.."
The bailout: a different perspective. Back in 1990, the Government seized the Mustang Ranch brothel in Nevada for tax evasion and, as required by law, tried to run it. They failed and it closed. Now we are entrusting the economy of our country to a pack of nit-wits who couldn't make money running a whore house and selling booze? You better hope your car keeps running!
Both jokes have been around for a bit and I thought of the Mustang Ranch one today while listening to The Chosen One tell us how bad things were but how he would save us all...
Jimmy M must have been reading my mind because he sent it to me.
