Buffoon: (n) a ridiculous but amusing person; a clown.
Even though clowns can be creepy, bizarre, outdated, corny and certainly over-dressed, they do offer us a warning:
“Everything that’s about to come out of my mouth is passing through excessive grease paint.”
It’s a good thing.
That’s completely unfair.
Sometimes it’s not enough to say, “I’m kidding” at the end of a nasty statement. (Like “LOL.”)
The thought comes to our minds, “Were they kidding, or just covering their butt by pretending it’s a joke, masking hidden animosity?”
I just feel it’s my responsibility to let you good readers know when I’m being a buffoon. It happens all the time.
I often choose to be a buffoon just because I’m nervous about the subject matter and don’t really know what I’m talking about. It’s just easier to joke than provide answers.
But I do want to put a request in to all politicians, ministers, Hollywood actors and school teachers. Please give us a heads up when you don’t really know what you’re talking about and there’s a high possibility what’s about to come forth just might be the ramblings of a buffoon.
