Cosmo Kramer had good reason to be afraid of clowns

This takes the cake (or the pie in the face) as the most trivial item posted on this blog (so far!):

...and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished. Proverbs 17:5b

This passage is easier to give intellectual assent to than to obey. I wouldn’t use the word "glad" to describe my reaction to this calamity, but I couldn’t keep from laughing. What happened to the unfortunate William Snyder brings to mind another warning from Proverbs:

Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth. Proverbs 27:1
