Fear of Mimes: Objection, Your Honor

Personally, I don’t think displaying emotion denotes weakness. Besides, for all you know, the mime could be lying to you. It could be imitating someone who’s ecstatic beyond imagine, but inside (s)he could be bawling his/her metaphorical eyes out.

And, I also think it’s impossible not to show emotion. If you think about it, a lack of emotion (in any form) is technically an emotion. Therefore, if a lack of emotion is an emotion, then there’s no such thing as a lack of emotion. And therefore, with the reasoning given, a fear of mimes is not, in this case, linked to a fear of death.
