I can't make this sh*t up

So, guess who was in class today?

I probably would have been more taken aback when he came into class if

A) he'd "found the damn wig"
B) I hadn't seen him in the snack bar earlier (where he saw me and did the "Why so serious" line and handed me a joker card from an Ace deck)
C) I hadn't already made a couple of character judgments about this student already--we are, after all, 12 weeks into the semester.

What I can't figure out is how, by all that's bright and beautiful in the world, he had the delusion that I wouldn't recognize him under the makeup.

And, by the way, he got it wrong--a bit too much WB animated Joker mixed in with the Ledger. Not sloppy enough (if you look, part of what makes Ledger's makeup so disturbing is that it appears applied by a drunken child).

Yup. This is my life--25 year old men in Joker makeup in the classroom.

At least I'm rarely bored.

I'd be tempted to critique his attempt.. Creativity, Authenticity, Documentation.....

I was going to make a snarky comment; but was suddenly gripped by the memory of "holding" the Fraternity tree at Geneseo for an evening, clad in armor. The handful of fighters in Ashental, along with the rest of the shire, stood around the tree and the Frat Boys didn't dare come near it to paint their letters on it.

Sooooo, Joker make-up, or a freon-tank helm with an SCA mace....I'll just keep my peace.

There's something to be said for life being interesting....;)
