DOCTOR: The great clown Pagliacci. At this time of year. At this time of day in this part of the country. Localized ENTIRELY within my office?
DOCTOR: May I see him?
MAN: but doctor
@joshmillard ye gods, my joke is ruined!
But... what if I were to borrow some gags from the great clown Pagliacci and pass them off as my own wit?
@joshmillard and now i've got myself thinking way too much about how this joke is itself a failure, in that it contradicts the premise that Pagliacci is the protaganist of the original joke - but it's only a failure if this joke is considered to be acting as a continuation or rescue of the original; if it's a commentary or even a reboot, then it doesn't have that flaw; but then it has a new flaw, which is that it is no longer a good commentary on the ORIGINAL pagliacci joke, and (1/8)
@joshmillard in conclusion:
— Good lord, what is happening in there?
— The Aristocrats.
