Ok to move "The Clown Problem" but I recall it added to your fame! deletion OTOH would be bad karma.

Most politicians are clowns who think themselves to be philosophical. But all they really do is pontificate.

Are we governed by Clowns ? LOL

I was in a writer's workshop yesterday.

The one thing that I promised not to ever let out on stage is the unicycling, because I'll immediately become a clown in people's minds. I was asked for 2 truths and a lie - Suddenly everything out of my mouth is circus based bullshit. "I'm afraid of clowns, I ride a unicycle, I was supposed to run off and join the circus."

I'm not a sympathizer, but no one tell me where you hid stuff from the Nazis. They're going to need ways to get me to stop talking.
