This is a checklist that one should run down every so often when one suspects that they are entering clowndom.
1. Does your face makeup leave a crotch print when you give head to your mate?
2. Do you believe that honking a horn twice is a suitable substitute for the word "yes"?
3. Is your car four doors or two?
4. Do you carpool?
5. Has one of your co-workers recently tossed a bucket of confetti in your face?
6. Are your suspenders holding up ridiculously over-sized pants?
7. Do you buy your shoes several sizes too big?
8. Are you a redhead? Is your hair curly?
9. Does the smell of elephant shit make you horny?
If you answered "yes" (or honked a horn twice) to 5 or more of these questions, you are indeed a clown. The people around you are perfectly justified in treating you the way they do. Stop whining and carry on.
