Man: Sir, I love the line, "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself", But I think I'd remove 'and clowns.'"
Why? Clowns are scary.
… and the only survivor in Rubes.
clowns sure scare the heck out of me. :)
He just means Republicans……..
”Clows” don’t scare me - don’t even know what they look like…….
Hey Risitas, the guy in office now is a democrat, get it right!
He’s scary and a clown, so I can see where that phobia comes from.
Clows are very, very scary, Risitas - you better hope you never see one. I had one swoop over me on wings of fire once, when walking past a cemetery around midnight (my fault - I knew better, with lightning cracking and thunder booming) Luckily, I had my special crucifix which had been sprinkled with holy water, and of course the Clow was helpless against it, thank God! It flew off shrieking in rage, looking for a more helpless mortal to rend and destroy, and from whom to steal the immortal soul. Consider yourself lucky so far, Risitas.
(No, of course I wouldn’t lie about something this serious)
And here I thought “clows” was a typo.
“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
Translation: “Don’t concern your little heads when we take the nation suddenly toward a fascist-style socialism via the National Recovery Act. Or when we attack the independence of the Supreme Court with the threat to pack them with our kind of people. Or when we grant recognition to the Soviet Union and have their embassy become the headquarters for several hundred spies. Yes, you have nothing to fear because I’m in charge.”
