OK, this isn’t silent film, guys…

Such emoting!  Such grand gesturing!  Mark’s hand locked in a palsy, Cherry going all “big eyes” on us.


The laconic Sheriff, who no doubt has seen it all, is barely moved by any of the outcomes he is describing…  But Mark and Cherry are positively aghast!  Not much happens in their little corner of the world, except for the odd poacher that thinks he can make a few bucks nabbing pelts off the preserve…  Now there is THE GREAT (non-verbal) WILHELM, who is probably on some behavioral/ physiological/ psychological spectrum, so they figured they’d dress him up and throw him out in front of the audience… Clowns are funny, right?  So anything he does, even if it’s weird and creepy will draw laughter… at least that was the bit that seems to have worked for decades!!
