    Mimes

    On another forum I visit (non-firearms related) someone asked whether any member was a fan of mimes. What followed was seven pages of "why I hate mimes" stuff. Seems no one is neutral on the subject.
    Anyone here like mimes?

    I love mines. I find them very useful in keeping the JWs and cookies sellers off my lawn. I also use them to--

    Oh . . . You said Mimes. Never mind.

    I don't hate them or mind them. But like msgt/ret, it's an art form I don't really understand usually.

    Why aren’t there many famous female mime artists?

    I always have found them to be a bit creepy. Not my form of art or entertainment.

    Red Skelton practiced this "art form", and I loved him. I think it take's a certain type of person, with a particular "mind set", to make it work.

    I heard that there were some people who hated mimes so bad that they'd hired hit men to kill them.

    Too bad, 'cause a mime is a terrible thing to waste!
