This is the excellent foppery of the world, that, when we are sick in fortune,—often the surfeit of our own behaviour,—we make guilty of our disasters the sun, the moon, and the stars; as if we were villains on necessity; fools by heavenly compulsion; knaves, thieves, and treachers by spherical pre-dominance; drunkards, liars, and adulterers by an enforced obedience of planetary influence; and all that we are evil in, by a divine thrusting on: an admirable evasion of whoremaster man, to lay his goatish disposition to the charge of a star! — Shakespeare, King Lear, Act 1. Scene 2.

You just have to realise that some people are like Slinkies ... not really good for anything, but you can't help smiling when you see one tumble down the stairs.

Ok, so after reading maybe half of the first page, I decided to reply.
You need to be more understanding. There's no room here for intolerance. That belongs in the Debate forum.
And, I've always thought clown piss tasted "funny".

Good one. I've never tasted it, so I'll have to bow to your expertise on that.

(Incidentally, clowns scare the piss out of me. Always have. I probably need therapy, but I just thought I'd mention it here).
