I heard a joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he's depressed. Says life is harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world. Doctor says, "Treatment is simple. The great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go see him. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says, "But doctor... I am Pagliacci." Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. Curtains.
Rorschach, "Watchmen" (Thanks to Andrew Flynn on GetGlue for going to the trouble of typing it in and posting it to the movie thread over there... where I stole it.)
