Actually, that was the title of the video at the top of the page

I wuzn't hatched outta the mushroom patch ... I know the difference between a funny guy and a fungi ...

Makes sense. I'm psychotic and the spirits tell me I am funny.

We disagree.

That's why we never say: " That's funny. You're a funny guy. "

And that's....bad?

I don't suffer from mental illness. I enjoy every minute of it.

That explains a lot, eh Dave? Dave?

You mean, let me understand this cause, ya know maybe it's me, I'm a little fucked up maybe, but I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a clown, I amuse you? I make you laugh, I'm here to fuckin' amuse you? What do you mean funny, funny how? How am I funny?

Just a closet psychotic. I'd rather be a happy psychotic than a mean psychotic.

Actors on the other hand are congenital liars and afflicted with multiple personalities.

I prefer to think of myselves as being quirky.

And the sky is what color?

nursecindy - I prefer to think of myself, too.

ya think?
