I don't know how I feel about encouraging children to enter politics.

I'm sure Ringling Bros has nothing to worry about.  They'll run out of clowns at about the same pace as circuses become obsolete.

I guess they're not counting Juggalos.

The clowns at Cirque du Soleil are really good. Although I thought the clowns at O weren't quite as good as the others at Zed or Mystere.
 
2014-02-18 03:08:49 AM
The Ringling Bros clowns are wonderful. I can't imagine how hard it must be to put on 3 or 4 shows a day.

Speak for yourself subby. If dressing up like a clown and killing people was good enough for John Wayne Gacy, it is good enough for me.

Forget studying math and science, kids!  You too can dream of a life of shiatty hotels and leftover funnel cakes.

It seems that clowns are victims of their own success. I mean really, how many of these young people can you fit into a clown car?

They've changed the clown dynamic to suit themseleves. Now they take a Barista with an MFA and offer an internship.

Speaking for myself, twenty years ago next Monday I auditioned for Clown College on a whim. Just sounded like something fun to do. What I didn't expect it to be was a life changing moment. Being out there on that arena floor and performing various skits and improvs and pretending to be in front of a packed house was something I had never experienced before. That and the audition also kicked my ass. I could barely move by the time I got to my car. But I fell in love with it and as a jobless nineteen year old decided that is what I wanted to do with my life. And it's been an interesting one to say the least. I've gotten to see places that I honestly would probably never have traveled to, met folks from all walks of life, even got to meet my hero, "Weird Al" Yankovic because of my clowning. Of course it's not a job that suits everybody. I remember I worked for a local entertainment company back in the late 90s that used to hire high school kids to dress up like clowns. They would be taught how to put on their makeup, how to do some balloon animals and facepainting, maybe even a couple of magic tricks. But they were doing it because they thought it would be an easy, fun job, which it can... but we're human beings. We have the same faults as everyone else. There are days in which I'm having a  really bad day, but I gotta hang that up and perform. A lot of people just can't do this. And now I feel like I'm just rambling on because it's four o'clock in the morning and I'm still on the effects of this cough and cold medication I took earlier in the evening to help me sleep through the night as I fight this nasty cold I have (and much good it did me!).

I got up because I couldn't sleep and I'm trying to relax and the next thing I know I'm convulsed with uncontrollable laughter. Thanks, Tokenbama.

A+, would laugh again

You want more clowns? Get high schoolers to believe there is some kind of clown fetish epidemic. 17 year olds will sign up for ANYTHING they think will get them laid.

Clowns, phone books, VCR repair shops, it's weird how some people just don't catch on that they've become obsolete.
 
2014-02-18 07:39:01 AM
Who am I clowning? I have no business being a clown. I should leave the clowning business to all the other clowns in the clowning business.

Ever since I was very small, I have hated clowns. I wasn't afraid of them, for some reason they just made me angry. I can't say I've liked a clown I've seen... until now.

And I can't even say why. It's not a sexual thing, although she's cute. I don't know why, but this one actually makes me smile.

/hard to believe, but maybe I've never seen a female clown?

Our long national nightmare will soon be over when the the last clown is gone.

"To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad." - Jack Handy
 
2014-02-18 10:42:57 AM
You know what would make a good story? Something about a clown who make people happy, but inside he's real sad. Also, he has severe diarrhea. - Jack Handy

My favorite one at the circus: Squirts the clown. I'll never forget him entering the center ring, waddling because of his oversize diapers. He'd honk his horn and we'd all hear that familiar sound: HONK! PHBBPPBSSS! SPLAT! "Oh, crap!"  How we laughed as ol' Squirts would leave the ring, both his head and pants hanging low.
