I dedicate this month-long challenge to children, with nephew Jeremy topping my list. Much thanks to the animated or more serious characters who agreed (or not) to conduct interviews this month. Sure, I had to promise them 80% of my profits, but a few are altruistic to the core. At least, that sounds good. Right? My point: Have fun reading this or doing something else. Give a child a hug today too.
Robyn: Folks, please welcome Mr. Herschel Shmoikel Pinchas Yerucham Krustofski, otherwise known as Krusty the Clown.
Krusty saunters in, smoking a cigarette and winking at the audience. Hey, hey kids! He dips his left hand onto his coat pocket and pulls out a kippah. Do you have some bobbi pins?
Robyn: Sure. She reaches into her bra and pulls out three bobbi pins and a piece of Bazooka ABC gum.
Robyn: You're smoking!
Krusty: No kiddin.' I heard you're Jewish and desperate and all. I promised dad I'd look my best for this one.
Robyn: No, I mean, you're smoking. There's no smoking at Life by Chocolate. I need you to put that cigarette out.
Krusty: That's not good. He crushes the cigarette on his pants, then tosses it over his left shoulder.
Robyn: Thanks. Tell us Krusty, how are things with your dad, Rabbi Hyman?
Krusty: After our 25 year shabbatical, the Hyman's come around. Lisa and Bart eased him back in. They're a little young, but very precocious. Yeah, now Papa Hyman's fine with me clowning around and not going to yeshiva. Wanna go out? He said I should ask. I'll give you forty bucks.
Robyn: Well, no. I read you've been married 15 times, and Sophie's your love child with Mia Farrow. That's a tad wrong.
Krusty, sighing: She's a good girl, that Sophie.
Robyn: I'm afraid they're signaling me to wrap up. You might shorten your birth name, Mr. Herschel Shmoikel Pinchas Yerucham Krustofski, before the next interview. Thanks for joining us, Krusty!
 Kippah = Beanie worn by Jewish men and sometimes women. Even less frequently, by clowns.
