The Associated Press reports that a traffic-control program in Caracas, Venezuela, employs mimes at crosswalks to "politely and silently scold" reckless drivers and careless pedestrians.
Since mimes, who constitute approximately .0001% of the world's population, are loathed by the other 99.9999%, here are some better uses for mimes in public spaces:
--breakaway safety posts at curbs
--doggy-do bag dispensers and collectors
--poles for posting "Work from home $$$$" fliers
I hope you weren't expecting anything profound.
If I ever need to plead insanity, this blog will provide valuable evidence.
