Mimes fighting to be heard….
Now the truth is out. By day, mimes entertain us by silently pretending to be trapped in glass boxes, and … well, come to think of it, that’s pretty much the extent of their act.
Anyway, it turns out these white-faced denizens of street theater have their own army, with big mime guns – probably equipped with silencers – and they are planning some kind of revolution. The government is now aware of their violent plans, and reportedly is building enormous glass boxes for holding the thousands of mime POWs expected to be captured soon.
