Tony Clifton speaks the same language as Richard Carlson

[K:--The need to proclaim Sri Aurobindo’s divinity. Quite agree here. Sri Aurobindo and Mother never proclaimed such things . TC: Well I am not sure about that, even if it can be argued that they never proclaimed themselves as divine they both did refer to one another as Divine and there were formal darshans of adoration. Was this consistent with a yoga of no religion? Re: Larger Issues of "The Lives of Sri Aurobindo" Controversy

  1. The concept of devotion to the Guru seems to be ignored by these so-called "yoga people".

    Tony Clifton was a fictional character of the 1970s!!

    Clifton was a staggeringly untalented lounge singer with a nasal, deliberately annoying singing voice. Clifton epitomized the washed-up showbiz casualty, a "star" too lazy to even bother to remember the lyrics to his songs. Clifton would often attempt to improvise comical lyrics that were intentionally unfunny before giving up entirely without seeming to care. Clifton also tended to randomly insult patrons, passing off the abuse as the "comedy" portion of his act. Adding to Clifton's annoying and unappealing presence was his tendency to rhyme various words at random in the middle of conversations.
