I dunno, I can think of more innocent victims than mimes.

This headline is proof that mimes aren't funny, period.

And also, Super Dave can't afford to keep them on the compound, so they have to roam free.

Last night I went to an experimental music showcase and this guy performed an intense mime/cello suite. At the very end, as the audience applauded (no, seriously), a guy in the crowd went into cardiac arrest. It was a totally surreal moment.

They should form a committee and then voice there displeasure with the situation.

Game With Stones: *put on my robe and wizard hat*

That's one of my fav skits!

bloodninja: I cast Lvl. 3 Eroticism. You turn into a real beautiful woman.

BritneySpears14: Hey...

bloodninja: I meditate to regain my mana, before casting Lvl. 8 Cock of the Infinite.

BritneySpears14: Funny I still don't see it.

bloodninja: I spend my mana reserves to cast Mighty Fark of the Beyondness.

BritneySpears14: I swear if you do it one more time I'm gonna report your ISP and say you were sending me kiddie porn you fark up.

Alas, such low standards pervade the mime industry these days. What happened to knowing your classics, like *turning pockets outside* to demonstrate destitution? Frankly, mimes these days hardly master the basics, yet they expect curbside pennies just for showing up painted silver. Oh tempores oh mores!

Actually, I think there's a sign upside down, just above the scorpion pit saying just that.

Still, as totalitarian rulers go, it aint that bad, besides, I share his views on mimes.

And a waist is a terrible thing to mime. Just ask any woman.

Depression??? We're barely into a recession at the moment.

If a tree falls in the forest and it kills a mime, does anybody care?

"Lets go...Mime is money, baby".
