For the record, I never said (or even hinted) that Wild Child was a
clown...I simply said he was in the running for Wildest hairdo, there's is a
quite a difference in the two. Go back and re-read the original post if you
need confirmation. You were the one who took the coversation towards the
clowns. I have always thought you were one of the best agents out there, I
just didn't realize that you didn't have a sense of humor. That's partly my
fault; There probably isn't much room for that sort of thing around all of
our esteemed associates. Like Zuzu used to say, "Joke 'em if they can't
take a f**k." chuck
