In the early 1800s in Manchester, England, and unhappy and depressed middle-aged man, while traveling, visited a physician who had been recommended to him?

"What's the nature of your ailment?" the physician asked. The sad-faced man told the physician that he was suffering from a hopeless illness. He was in terror of the world around him and nothing gave him pleasure or amused him or gave him a reason to live. "If you can't help me," he told the physician, "I'm afraid that I will kill myself."

The physician tried to reassure him. He told the man that he could be cured. He encouraged him to get out of himself, to find things that would amuse him, and cheer him up and make him laugh.

The patient said, "Where can I go to find such a diversion?"

The physician replied, 'The circus is in town tonight. Go see Grimaldi the clown. Grimaldi is the funniest man alive. He will cure you!"

The sad-faced patient looked up and said, "Doctor, I am Grimaldi. I am Grimaldi."
