We couldn't take another clown funeral after Chuckles.

"Members of the Antioch Shrine Funster Clown Unit gave the highest honor that a deceased clown can ever receive by acting as pallbearers"

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

/clown funerals are the BEST!

The crying one is me. I don't feel any different about it today.

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.

Just out of frame, a friend awaits already at the grave...

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)?

2009-05-29 08:36:33 PM  
Ahh, clown thread.

The only way to make this more trauma-inducing would be if there was a spider on the casket.

Photoshop, anyone?
2009-05-29 08:38:30 PM  
You can't eat that.

What, is the "creepy" tag on vacation?


Why yes, apparently it is.
2009-05-29 08:44:15 PM  
The only good clown is a dead clown....

/just sayin
//clowns are totally creepy
2009-05-29 08:44:41 PM  
Now that's how you put the "fun" back into "FUNeral."

"They just kept stuffing caskets into the hole, one after the other!"
2009-05-29 08:46:51 PM  
There are 23 clowns in that casket.

You have to appreciate someone who will do the stupid bunny ears over someone's head joke in a funeral photo.

Hobo clowns are always hit worst by recession.

John Waters: It's camp! The tragically ludicrous? The ludicrously tragic?
Homer: Oh, yeah. Like when a clown dies.

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.

I had a heavy metal band called Clown Funeral. Getting a kick.

Sandals at a funeral? It's like she thinks it's ok to wear just anything on such a somber occasion. The nerve of some people. Show some respect for the dead.

Shakes the Clown was a no-show, along with the Insane Clown Posse:

If all the clowns had crammed into the casket and sprung out at the wake, that would have been something worthy of my click'ns. As it was, just a bunch of sad old men in face paint.
2009-05-29 08:53:00 PM  
Cool funeral.

Looks like there was a lot of clowning around.

Great Pictures!

Came here for the Chuckles the Clown reference, relieved it was way up there.

/saddest thing I ever heard a friend say: "I found my inner clown!"

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.'"

What no clown car?

It would have been a nice touch if they all got out of clown car with the casket.
