I find them a little of both. Just like clowns, Pierrots--in all their harlequined, Mardi Gras-esque single-teardrop poignancy--are so adorable I want to kitchen-magnet them onto my fridge, and yet so precious at times I fear I might barf up the room.

Here's a bunch for you to munch on and decide for yourself. Pierr-oh-boy!
