Clowns

No doubt with Halloween just around the corner, there will be some Clowns just around the corner too.

 

Bunch of idiots

Some nice Videos of Clowns being clobbered, and at least one prosecuted in the UK

Sounds like a job for the CPS (Clown Prosecution Service)

 

So on Halloween, what'ya goin to do ?

Call Clown Busters ?

I know what I would do if one approached me or my Family......

Re: Clowns

'taint funny.

What mindless hooliganism and criminality it all is!

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Re: Clowns

There's three clowns who need to be dealt with for attempting to scare the public: Miliband, Osbourne and Clegg.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Re: Clowns

This clown thing is getting stupid. They've even sacked the clown at Blackpool Pleasure Beach for being too scary!

He's apparently suing them for funfair dismissal.

Re: Clowns

Think most of these involved  have never been to a circus,and seen that clowns are there to make you laugh, 

Charlie Cairoli would be so sad.

Re: Clowns

And stores are selling those clown masks. Crazy2

Me? I'm ugly and scary enough without one!

As a story slightly aside, years back and before red nose day was even thought about my company asked for new photographs for our ID cards and I sent one in of myself wearing a red nose. The admin manager always up for a laugh sent me back a card with the photo included and marked my name as 'Grock the Clown'!  I had two ID cards of course but presented the clown one to gain entry to premises I had not been to before - and they let me in having obviously paid only scant attention to the card I had handed them. And the premises? A bank.

Makes you think eh. 

I know where I am, I've been lost here before.

Re: Clowns

Possibly my favourite ever excerpt from a BBC article:

 

But the craze has left real clowns feeling frustrated their profession is being portrayed in a negative way.

A World Clown Association executive said the trend was "disappointing".

Re: Clowns

An article in today's paper has reported someone punched one of these clowns on the nose....sounds like a good idea to me.

Utter idiots, how would they feel if some elderly person had a heart attack ?

Re: Clowns

The criminal element are not what they used to be.

What was wrong with the good old Richard Nixon mask?

That was really scary.

Re: Clowns

I`ve never liked clowns, even when I was a kid..... always thought they were as stupid as they looked.  never ever thought they were funny... nor scary, for that matter... however, if I encountered one of these threatening idiots, I would probably be scared witless....
