The pictures got me chuckling, but THAT just made me break out in full on laughter.

In all seriousness - what would happen at one of these if the Westboro douches showed up?

They see one or two cars, so they bring about 20 people for lawsuit bait of their "protesters". Then the clowns start getting out of the cars, and hilarity ensues.

Literally.

I'm pretty sure my grandma had a porcelain figure of that guy, pretty much in that pose.

And who's the chick in pic 7?

And did they all ride in the hearse together?

And the fire hat - was he one of those clowns who do the burning building act (like in Dumbo)?

Sheesh...

My best friend in all the world was a professional clown. He died at age a young age from brain cancer. He did not have a clown funeral but every clown, magician, and kid's entertainer in the county was there. In tribute, he was buried with a lone juggler's club on his casket. Nothing could symbolize the loss better. The perfect symbol of a fallen juggler. It was the saddest thing I have ever been to in my life.

How many caskets did they pull out of there?
 
2009-05-29 08:57:52 PM

"Chuckles the Clown brought pleasure to millions. The characters he created will be remembered by children and adults alike: Peter Peanut, Mr. Fee-Fi-Fo, Billy Banana, and my particular favorite, Aunt Yoo Hoo. And not just for the laughter they provided-there was always some deeper meaning to whatever Chuckles did.

Remember Mr. Fee-Fi-Fo's little catch phrase? Remember how, when his arch rival Señor Caboom hit him with a giant cucumber and knocked him down, Mr. Fee-Fi-Fo would always pick himself up, dust himself off, and say, 'I hurt my foo-foo'? Life's a lot like that. From time to time we all fall down and hurt our foo-foos. If only we could deal with it as simply and bravely and honestly as Mr. Fee-Fi-Fo.

And what did Chuckles ask in return? Not much. In his own words, 'A little song, a little dance, a little seltzer down your pants.'"

You had me at clown funeral, then you told me there were pics and I was there. I clicked through each and every picture with a growing sense of anticipation, only to see, in the last frame, The deceased in his coffin without makeup! Kind of a bummer.
Thanks anyway, subby. The pallbearer shot was a good consolation prize.

Fark'em, good riddance and bomb the funeral. I hate clowns. Not in the "I was traumatized by one as a little kid," way experienced by so many other farkers, (although I understand it) I've just never, ever found them funny in their normal function and for a profession/career/hobby/whatever where that is your expressed purpose, it strikes me as profoundly wrong. There are plenty of other forms of humor that are admittedly not my cup of tea, but I can at least appreciate that they're funny to someone, not clowns though, I would wholly support the War on Drugs and the War on Terror if we could classify clowns as either/both. (They burn confiscated drugs don't they?)

This rant has nothing against balloon animals or the potentially comedic affects of a seltzer bottle, nay, this is aimed directly at the exaggerated featured, white faced, fake nose wearing societal poxes and those who do not realize that clowns deserve both our condemnation and contempt.

I do not like clowns. At all. My son brought home a sticker from a field trip that says "Clowns are not normal people." This made me laugh. He did not understand and declared it was from some kid series called Junie Bee (probably spelled that wrong). I blame Poltergeist. That farking clown puppet killed my childhood.

On another note, this is a good read.
