Well, my dad grew up below the poverty line - so I got a lot of stories about walking to school in a blizzard, up hill; both ways - sounds pretty horrible... so I want to avoid having to live in a neighborhood like that.

So I always used to see these mimes hanging out at the ice cream parlor on Third and Market here in San Francisco. The'd be dressed in their black clothes and their white face makeup and they'd just sit around and make dramatic gestures and never say anything. Then someone told me that they were goths!

Curious, I went out on the web to find out more about this new breed of mime. Aside from a million and one badly-done geocities sites praising such mime bands as Marilyn Manson and The Cure, there is really only one good explanation of these ice cream-loving clowns: the tamagothi site.

The tamagothi is like a tamagotchi virtual pet, only its sole purpose is to train parents to raise their mime children properly. It is real-life training for the care and feeding of mute adolescents from an early age.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
