Maintained by Evan Dunlap of the Orlando Magic blog Orlando Pinstriped Post.

Inspired by Slaugherhouse 90210, which does the same thing, only with television.

"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 says, ‘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.’”

- Alan Moore, Watchmen
