The sheer loopiness of it all

You know who's a poster child for How to look frighteningly deranged? GrinningSkull, no duh, especially after a hard night where his smiling mug suddenly looming out round some corner when you have barely pried your eyes open, which is like several stages beyond sobering, if you know what I mean. Sometimes it is a useful thing to have around (mostly when solicitors show up at our door) but mostly it is just something that you kind of grow used to, if you're lucky. The funny thing is that looking crazy is contagious, like a yawn, so before you know it you find yourself smirking and twitching and dressing with wacky mismatched patterns too. One time I suddenly caught sight of myself in a full-length mirror and felt like I was going to die of embarrassment.

Lots of evil supervillains go for that foaming-at-the-mouth look though, which makes for quite a sight whenever those bats get together for their conventions. The thing is, you don't always know how much of that is real crackpottery and how much is an act for show, and things being what they are, you don't usually want to investigate too closely to figure out which it is. In any case, it's usually a good thing if you can avoid eating over at their place, and since you probably are working up a pretty good hysterical shtick of your own, it mostly all works out anyway, as they are not so keen on coming over to your place either.
