I first read #3 as "interrupted by moments of silliness". Which seems more
appropriate to the word.

And who doesn't need a large, decorative comb? #5 gets my second vote.

None of them seem credible, except for mine, and I even have doubts about it.

Of the implausible ones, 8 and 13, because why not? They're probably the longest and the shortest, though I didn't check.

I don't believe any of them, for a change.

So let's spread the votes around.
