[Cue the groans] Brother, can you spare a mime?

Friends don’t let friends mime drunk.

Groaning is ok. The worse the better.

To mime own self be true.

It’s good to relax at home after a long day in the salt mimes.

And this very special question from a boy street performer to a girl street performer on
Feb. 14: Will you be mime Valentine?

In a forest If a tree falls on a mime does anyone care?

Welcome to Fluther.

What’s mime is mime, and what’s yours is mime, too.

A waist is a terrible thing to mime.

CWOTUS's avatar

It’s a case of mime over matter: If you don’t mime, it won’t matter.

Mimes: Thinking inside the box since the box isn’t even there.

To borrow once again from that Master Punster, Willy Shakespeare…

”... humour of mime, sir, to take that that no man else
will… ”

Yours, mime, and ours.

Mime your own business.

Don’t do the crime, if you can’t do the mime.

A stitch in time saves mime.

He lost his woman; he lost his money, now he lost his mime.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Key mime pie its an acquired taste.

zenvelo's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central GA, but I think it is,

“Don’t do the mime if you can’t do the time”

CWOTUS's avatar

Third mime’s a charm.

And as to @zenvelo‘s contribution, I thought it was “Don’t do the crime if you can do the mime.”

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

^ I guess you can do either. Suppose if you do the crime and do time, the mime will do you in lockup, of if you do the mime out of lockup you have to do time

There’s a joke in here somewhere about Cyndi Lauper doing “Mime After Mime”, but I can’t find it.

zenvelo's avatar

@CWOTUS
If you can look for the joke and you will find me
mime after mime
If you fall I’ll pretend to catch you waiting
Mime after mime

Ain’ nobody got mime fo’ dat!

CWOTUS's avatar

I’m looking for something on the space-mime continuum, but coming up empty.

CWOTUS's avatar

Maybe a Lone Ranger thing here where Tonto goes on about the “paleface” speaking in forked fingers.

If Silence is Golden, then why are mimes working the streets for spare change?

CWOTUS's avatar

If children should be seen and not heard, then they must be apprentice mimes.

We all know, I think, that mime doesn’t pay.

These are great, thanks!

I got busted by the cops because some Flutheronian dropped a mime on me.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

One thin dime won’t even mime your shoes….

Dutchess_III's avatar

Why is this in General?

All your cheezburgers are mime.

monthly's avatar

@Dutchess_III When I asked it I didn’t know the difference between General and Social.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Well, in Social it’s much more relaxed. After the basic question is answered you’re allowed to stray off topic and have fun.
In General, you have to be careful to never get off topic. You are much more likely to get “modded,” (your answer removed by the Mod Squad.)

She’s got eyes of the bluest skies
As if they thought of rain
I hate to look into those eyes
And see an ounce of pain
Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place
Where as a child I’d hide
And pray for the thunder
And the rain
To quietly pass me by

Oh, oh, oh
Sweet child o’ mime
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Sweet love of mime
