Random Quote #86 topic: black-humor, Death, violence-as-humor, and the like. Really sick stuff.

What you mean, how old am I? About one hundred! But Viennese answer is
better: we say, "I keep passing the open windows." This is an old joke.
There was a street clown called King of the Mice: he trained rodents, he
did horoscopes, he could impersonate Napoleon, he could make dogs fart
on command. One night he jumped out his window with all his pets in a box.
Written on the box was this: "Life is serious, but art is fun!" I hear his
funeral was a party. A street artist had killed himself. Nobody had
supported him but now everybody missed him. Now who would make the dogs
make music and the mice pant? The bear knows this, too: it is hard work
and great art to make life not so serious.

-- John Irving "The Hotel New Hampshire"
