Sometimes. I enjoy clowning around as much as the next guy. And I certainly don't let fear of embarrassment deter me in any way.

Somehow, though, I suspect I don't make a fool of myself anywhere near as often as the self-aggrandizing ignorant thinks I do. And given his apparent ability to assess things, I probably make a fool of myself when he thinks I don't.
