ProdigalSigh: 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.

/feel better now

Awwwwwww, Sounds like someone needs a timeout in the Happy Hut.

Gordon Bennett: /Now I really want to watch "Shakes the Clown"

Personally, I now want to watch "The Day the Clown Cried."

/If only that were possible...

Subby is a cold hearted Bastard. How can you find this amusing, this tragedy of tragedies?
Alas, poor Norman! I knew him, Subby; a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy; he hath borne me on his back a thousand times; and now, how abhorred in my imagination it is! My gorge rises at it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know not how oft. Where be your gibes now?

Those clowns would eat you if they could.

Sad to see that they did not break out krumping in honor of their fallen comrade, to express their grief and remorse.

yossarian76: You sound abused and sad.

phunkey_monkey: Awwwwwww, Sounds like someone needs a timeout in the Happy Hut.

Your defense of clowns is overwhelming, I guess they are funny and I am the reprobate due to my deficiencies. I will adjourn my psychoanalyst posthaste. Thank you for your insight.

Those are the creepiest bunch of guys in clown outfits I've seen (who weren't being creepy on purpose).

Surprised they didn't throw a pie in his face before closing the casket.

I declare a new tag, this is sad and amusing.

Also, I'm taking the elevator to hell.
