PAGLIACCI

From Alan Moore’s Watchmen,

HEARD JOKE ONCE:

MAN GOES TO DOCTOR. SAYS HE’S DEPRESSED. SAYS LIFE SEEMS HARSH AND CRUEL. SAYS HE FEELS ALL ALONE IN A THREATENING WORLD. WHERE WHAT LIES AHEAD IS VAGUE AND UNCERTAIN.

DOCTOR SAID, “TREATMENT IS SIMPLE. GREAT CLOWN PAGLIACCI IS IN TOWN TONIGHT. GO AND SEE HIM. THAT SHOULD PICK YOU UP.”

MAN BURSTS INTO TEARS.

SAYS “BUT, DOCTOR ….

….. I  AM  PAGLIACCI.”
