You come upon a clown, who is sad. He has pie strewn across his face. Clearly, he has been the butt of what has long since been his own joke, played on unsuspecting circus-goers. Do you,
A: Console him by singing a clown-lullaby
B: Laugh, as most people surely would, at the sheer irony of it all, or
C: offer a novelty clown-handkerchief, to the clown, who begins to wipe the pie remains off his face, only to reveal that it is a gag handkerchief, and squirts ink, to your utter delight, and his dismay?
