"Every Village Has One, Ladies and Gentlemen!"
Tonto’s old buddy, Reverend Stiggins, did not fare well after heckling the clowns in the touring circus, during their performance of the “Unicycle and Rubbish Can” routine. They did not appreciate that Nathaniel’s sense of humor was based on his unique perception of universal characteristics, like absurdity, incongruity, and emotional chaos. What these clowns had in mind, was more along the lines of the physiological, where the comedy involved exaggerated physical violence and a skit which exceeded the boundaries of common sense. The crowd went mad.
