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.
