There was a profile of Jon Gnarr over the weekend in the NY TIMES, that deserves merit here for this quote given in the piece:
Mr. Gnarr, born in Reykjavik as Jon Gunnar Kristinsson to a policeman and a kitchen worker, was not a model child. At 11, he decided school was useless to his future as a circus clown or pirate and refused to learn any more.
The mind reels at where it wanders on reading that…
