Should also mention that some people enjoy that feeling. I knew kids in high school who were pathetic and insecure, didn't have many friends, not a lot of people liked them. So they acted like idiots and make everyone around them laugh. It was pretty sad. The only reason they got any attention was because they were funny, but not the good kind of funny. Whenever I talked to people who knew them and sometimes hung out with them, they did not have positive things to say. It was the lowest form of insecurity I saw in high school. People tried to befriend me because I was also sort of the same way in drama class, except that I didn't do things like that to make people laugh at me or like me. I did it because it was fun for me. If people laughed, cool, but I didn't care what they thought. People tried to befriend me in the same way that they befriended these kids, but I wasn't dumb enough to fall for it. Even though the first year of drama class was all fun and games, I proved the next couple years that I was capable of being a strong, dramatic actor, and people weren't laughing much then. The other's, however, never learned and continued to act dumb.
